Technical tour - Saturday 6 December
Abbadia a Isola - Monteriggioni (Siena)
The technical tour will be a visit (with a short excursion) along
the Francigena Way (Via Francigena), in one of the most
charming places of Tuscany. The day will include also a meeting
with local administrators and technicians in order to understand
the different interventions for the promotion, dissemination and
safety of the official path. The Via Francigena is an ancient
pilgrim trail to Rome, starting in Canterbury, England; crossing
the channel to France and continuing across Switzerland before
reaching Italy. One of the most fascinating sections of the Italian Francigena is absolutely in
Tuscany and in particular in the province of Siena, where we'll go with this technical tour.
