The Via Francigena became increasingly suitable even for those who don’t have... exceptional legs!
In fact, it's now possible to book an organized trip with E-bikes. You may also request a luggage service between one stage and another, and the rental of a GPS or the use of an App for orientation.
This "self-guided" means of travel allows bike travelers the maximum movement freedom in order to manage, in relation to their capabilities and needs, the various rounds of the tour.
On the official Website devoted to the “Via" was published the complete itinerary that connects Valle d'Aosta to Rome on the pedals: 1000 km along the old "way" that leads to the Eternal City. Maps and GPS tracks are available for free download.
After the boom of 2014 (when the number of travelers along this ancient route has increased by 50%) it was thus finally completed the tracking of the cycle path. The new route is 1,027 km long, divided into 23 stages with an average length of 45 kilometers, and joins Colle del Gran San Bernardo to Rome, through some of the most beautiful areas of Italy: from the eternal snows to the rice fields, from the Tuscan hills to ancient Roman roads.
The route is available on the Website, which was developed by SloWays in collaboration with the Tuscany Region and the European Association of Vie Francigene. The Via Francigena by bike represents the top of innovative tourist offer, which uses new technology to bring large audiences to the "slow" travel.
Returning to the proposal of a trip with pedal assisted bikes, we must also emphasize that, in case of need, you can call customer service to get help from distance.
