One of the great pilgrimage routes of Europe, the Via Francigena covers 1900km on its way from Canterbury to Rome. In this first volume, the route leads through relatively flat sections in northern France, before reaching the mountainous Jura and the ascent to the Great St Bernard Pass.

This is the first published guide to a route destined to become as popular as the Way of St James and Via de la Plata. Since becoming a European Cultural Itinerary in 1994, it is now partly waymarked and plentiful accommodation has sprung up along the way.
