2020 Camino Guides
Hi fellow caminers, does anyone know if there is a specific stamp passport available for the Francigena and, when starting
in Lucca, where we could apply or get one?

in lucca you can get stamps in san michele in foro, in san frediano and in casa boia. credencials and guides are sold in casa boia. casa boia is close to where VF leaves lucca.

I walked the VF March to June this year.
Here's what my credenziali looked like; front & back.
I had no problem obtaining stamps from accommodation each night.
Happy trails,

This passport looks soooo great.
😁 You should see them full!
It took two VF passports (double sided; one side for stamps & the other side stamps & a map) + a separate one for the PWC...thats a lot of stamp collecting!

yeah, well, I had to contend with a booklet-type numbered official credential which does not unfold pretilly at all. :confused: jealous!

Never mind...your type may not impressively concertina but it was probably more durable! 😄

durability still does not trump the unfoldability. I like it when I can unfold my credencial (at home, for a random example) and admire all my stamps (and show them off to my mom). and I have two of these booklets because I like collecting my stamps very much, and I can't unfold them. 😭
...finally got that off my chest... :)

Glad to oblige @caminka...& commiserations 😌 Yes...I do have to admit I like the grand unfolding revealing the dazzling array of stamps 😇 As the VF went on, I had that big sweeping arm movement down to a fine art!
My suggestion for you; you'll just have to do the walks again...this time with a 'proper' credenziale! 🚶‍♀️😂 🤗

Hi. Of course yes. :)👍
Only the name "Casa del Boia" does not appear in all the guides. And it is usually known more by those who have already done the Via Francigena.
