    Is anyone walking the Way of Saint Francis to/from Assisi this April?

    Hi,I was wondering if anyone is walking the Way of St Francis Easter week? I heard it's not as organized as el Camino de Santiago and that I should consider walking it with other people. If you're walking it, please let me know. I don't really want to cancel this trip :-)

    Cammino di Assisi

    Has anyone recently walked this route? I am thinking of walking this camino in September next year. However, there is not a great deal of information in English and there appear to be many variations and starting points. Would love to hear from anyone with further information. Sharon

    Cammino di Assisi

    I had walked Camino Frances this past spring and loved it. I'm looking at other "pilgrimages" and hikes to walk next year. At this time I'm leaning toward el Camino del Norte. Recently I ran across Cammino di Assisi in Tuscany, Italy. Has anyone heard about this "pilgrimage" or walked it? I...
