Hi Mutley I'm also planning to walk the Via Francigena next Spring. I'm afraid I can't speak French either though. But trying! I'm in touch with two other ladies who are also planning to walk in the Spring, nothing set stone yet.
I'm also a Brit and have walked two Caminos Camino del Santiago and the Note and like you miss it.

Buon giorno, Piero. Pozo farele una domanda? Based on Rome2rio, I can take a bus from Ponte d'Arbia to San Quirico d'Orcia on Sunday , 31 March @ 1809 hr. That seems strange that it would be available on a Sunday. Do you have knowledge of this area? BTW, i was a big fan of Lone Peak shoes (3 Caminos) but have switched to Topo Athletics. seems to be the better shoes at this moment. Grazie, Ciao.
My husband and I are walking the Via Francigena from Gran St Bernard's Pass to Rome, starting on the 24th August 2019.
We are in the process of looking at flights, and I was just wondering the best option to get to GSBP. We are flying out from Australia, and thought we would fly into Milan and take the train up to pass. The route to pass looks like you have to use the train as well as a bus?
Hello Piero. My wife and I are planning to walk from Gran St Bernard's Pass to Rome in Aug-Oct next year. We want to spend a few days in Bologna before catching the train to Aosta and then travelling by bus to GSBP. I understand that Swiss Post operate two bus runs per day from Aosta to GSBP but can't get any sense of the departure times (not even on their website). Do you have any sense of the departure times?
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.
