The SantiaGoToRome project involves developing and promoting the longest “slow” travel itinerary of Europe: around 3,000 km to do by foot and by bicycle, combining the Camino de Santiago and the Via Francigena. The idea comes from the Slow Travel Association (Associazione Movimento Lento), that has for years dedicated itself to spreading “slow” travel. We want to inform the hundreds of thousands of people who walk the Camino towards Santiago every year that it is possible to go “against the current”, towards Spain, France and then Italy along an amazing path.
- To sign with a red arrow the Way towards France and Italy and to promote the journey onto this path on both the directions in order to incentivize a further development of all the services already along the path;
- Promotion of the wonderful Italian Itineraries and of the Via Francigena that, still have not completely developed their potentialities under the tourist point of view;
- To enhance an ancient itinerary of a great social, historical and artistic value;
- To promote the "slow travel" culture as a more authentic and respectful way of travelling.
