For those coming on the Assisi tour – I’m attaching a distance and elevation log that Sandy Brown has just posted.
Sandy walked the Via de Francesco, The Way of St. Francis, last year, and did so with the intention of writing a detailed guidebook.
Kind of like a John Brierley guidebook, but for The St. Francis Way.
I’ve been talking to Sandy since last year. I liaised with him during the preparation of the tour’s itinerary, and I have an advance copy of his book, which is fabulous.
And what’s pleasing to note in these elevations is that the largest elevation is in fact a descent – from the St. Francis Monastery in della Verna, which is where we start our walk (we start our tour in Florence, but the walk from the St. Francis monastery in la Verna) – and it’s all downhill that first day.
The following days are all very manageable.
Not far off now. We still have some places free… so get in touch if you’re interested. It’s going to be an amazing walk, through the Umbrian countryside to Assisi… very special.
(In the table below, the first column is the number of kms, the second or middle column is the ascent, and the far right column is the descent.)
