1000 KILOMETERS OF ART, HISTORY AND CULTURE: WHAT TO SEE DISCOVER AND TASTE ALONG THE ANCIENT
– by Riccardo Baudinelli and Luca Bruschi –
The guide, following Sigerico’s journey, the Canterbury archbishop, recommends to the reader a series of historical and tourist itineraries, all in close proximity of the Italian portion of the ancient Rome path, divided in several stages from Great St. Bernard to Rome and along the cross regions. Among the propositions: the Valle d’Aosta castles, the Canavese, the Oltrepò Pavese, the Emilia of the Verdi’s country, the Liguria of the Cinque Terre, the Tuscany of the UNESCO sites, the Etruscan Tuscia. Several paths you can go through, even in separate stages in a weekend, by car or motorbike, or according to the slow tourism trends, by bike, walking or riding, in order to live the journey in a real and emotional mood. You can find also useful tips about where to get informed, eat and sleep along all the journey.
