      Thank you for this post! There are sometimes discussions about the meaning of America and americano on this forum that make it sound as if Spaniards are incapable of doing what the rest of the world is perfectly able to do: understanding...

      If you have walked Le Puy Michael , The Primitivo will cause you no problems. It's beautiful and totally pilgrim orientated. Have a day in Oviedo before you commence as Lugo is then the next big one. Wonderful summary of VF

      MichaelC replied to the thread Laundry on the Francigena.
      I ended up using laundromats a few times between Lucca and Rome. Even when there was a washing area, the drying area would often be a rack near an open window, but not exposed to the sun. I never had a host offer to wash clothes for me.

      (Ed) When we did this route we booked it one day at a time. Many times we asked our current host to call ahead for us. A number of them knew each other so it was like an underground railroad. When we didn’t have them call, we would go to the...

      A pretty good description of that route, which I walked last October. I had some different perspectives of course, partly because I have some Italian and could ring and reserve pilgrim accommodation. Also, in October the walkers appeared to be...

      MichaelC replied to the thread Lucca to Rome - a retrospective.
      The only actual place people had trouble finding accommodation was Viterbo. I found a room, though it was too expensive. Others I was walking with couldn't find anything. For pilgrim accommodations, some don't open until June, and others...

      There are a few, but they are not common in the first half of the route. In general people call and make a reservation the night before. The hosts will usually call for non-French speakers. After Moissac there are larger places that can...

      I’m very glad you took the time to tell us what it’s like Michael. I have the guide books for it and I’ve done some research but your notes are really helpful. I’ve done the Le Puy, the Frances twice and the Portuguese from Lisbon and I was...
