    VIA Francigena del SUD

    Hello ! Has anyone done (quite recently) the via Francigena del sud from Rome to further south ? If so could you give information on accomodation or all other things ? Thanks so much. NB : I can only post here as there is no forum for Via Francigena del Sud from Rome to St Maria de Leuca

    Via Domitia

    Has anybody walked on the Via Domitia ? It is a pilgrimage route from MontGenevre to Arles and leads to Santiago on one way and to Rome on the other. I would like to walk it but find very littel information. Thanks

    Still As Busy?

    There's really no problem if you want to walk alone and be quiet, just walk on another camino than the Frances (there are so many..). You can try camino del Sureste, or camino de la Lenna for example

    If you want to understand you must take time to read the post to which my message was replying, ( that is the one I quoted from Rebekah Scott).

    You are maybe right, but when I walk on caminos I discuss with pilgrims about St James and most don't even seem to know what he has done so it's difficult to imagine that they have come from so far and are walking for weeks just in worship for him You could also say the reverse : Without...

    No, most people do not do the camino because of St James remains, nor to do with christianity. They do the caminos de Santiago mainly because : - It is the only place in the world where you can walk for many days on and have every night a very cheap place to sleep. - You have the opportunaty...

    LIVE from the Camino A new threat to my pilgrim tolerance and zen-like state of relaxation

    If you don't want this, there are so many beautiful more peaceful other caminos. When you choose to go on Camino Frances you can only expect this. It's a choice..
