The Pilgrims’ Passport and the Official walking path guide: the two fundamental objects for those who want to start their travel along the Francigena Way.
Kit Pilgrim’s Passport + Italian Official Guide
The Credential is the fundamental document for pilgrims.
It represents the “passport of the pilgrim”, attesting his identity and motivations.
The Pilgrim must carry it with him in order to be identified as such and to have access to the reception facilities on the itinerary. In every place where he is hosted he will receive a stamp, until the completion of the journey. Many structures welcome pilgrims with the credential requesting a simple offer to support the management costs, in other cases, when it comes to accommodation facilities that offer more services, are generally applied reductions.
Delivering the credential in every place where the Pilgrim is hosted will receive a stamp, useful for completing the journey and necessary to request the “Testimonium” (must have traveled at least the last 200km by bike or 100km on foot).
Many structures welcome Pilgrims requesting a simple offer useful to support the management costs, in other cases, when it comes to accommodation facilities that offer greater services or public transport means such as trains and buses, reductions are generally applied.
