LightFoot Guides are written for Walkers, Cyclists and Horse Riders, providing specific information for each group and enabling everyone to meet their personal goals. The complete, Edition 6, LightFoot Guide to the Via Francigena consists of four books: Canterbury to Besançon, Besançon to Vercelli, Vercelli to Rome and the Companion to the via Francigena discribing the culture and history of key sites along the route. This book traces 435 kilometres of the Via Francigena from from Besançon in France to Vercelli where the the via Francigena and the St James Way meet in northern Italy. The route closely follows the 10th century route used by Archbishop Sigeric the Serious, but adapted to current conditions. The guide contains a number of alternatives to reduce total distance, avoid possible difficulties or to gain access to specific loactions. The entire distance has been GPS traced and divided into manageable sections of approximately 22 kilometres, but accommodation is listed for the entire length of each section.
