What is the St Francis' Way

A route to reach Assisi following in the footsteps of St Francis, whether leaving from the North (La Verna) or the South (Rome).
It is an itinerary on foot, by bicycle and on horseback that links together several "places" that bear witness to the life and preaching of the Saint of Assisi; a “new” pilgrimage route, which intends to reintroduce the Franciscan experience in the lands that the Poor Man walked through on his travels.

Credential and Testimonium Viae Francisci

Like all the most important pilgrimage routes, an official specific Credential also exists for the St Francis' Way as well as an official certificate at the end of the journey. 
The Credential is issued to those who intend to go on a pilgrimage on foot, by bicycle or on horseback and who commit to accepting its meaning and spirit.  The pilgrim's Credential should be requested at least 3 weeks before departure to allow time for it to be sent by post.
The delivery service is free of charge and is provided by the Franciscan families of Assisi. However, a donation to cover the delivery costs is greatly appreciated.
