Above is a map of the “official” Via Francigena. It starts in Canterbury England and travels through the Somme (infamous for the slaughter of WWI), the Champagne region, over the Jura Mountains into Switzerland. From there it circles around the East side of beautiful lake Geneva before climbing up and over the Alps at the Great St. Bernard pass. At the peak it crosses into Italy and down into the Aosta valley, through the Po valley before crossing over the spine of Italy (the Apennines) and down into Tuscany before arriving in Rome.
