Walked from Porto to Santiago in 2015 with a friend, and then from Hendaye, on the French side of the border, across the Northern route, cutting south east on the Primitivo, unaccompanied but never alone, in 2017. I'm beginning my prep (long range) for a pilgrimage on the Francigena, from Lucca to Rome, in 2020. These pilgrimages work their way into the blood and bones, I think.
We have walked from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela (SdC). We are soon to embark from Lisbon to SdC then to Finisterre, Muxia and back to SdC. We were wondering where to next and came across this pilgrimage. We are excited to start our research here!!
We are now one week into our Camino Vie Francigena. Tonight we are staying at Radicofani at the Refugio Spedale Di San Pietro e Giacomo. We received a very warm welcome from the hospitarios.
One thing to be aware of is that the refuge Parrocchia SS Pietro in Buonconvento no longer accepts pilgrims. It is closed.
