We're less than a month out from the Assisi tour, and we now have to finalise hotel numbers etc. So if you wish to join us, last chance to let us know…
It's going to be an incredible walk – meeting up in Florence, then we'll bus to the monastery at La Verna, high on a hill top. This monastery holds great significance for St. Francis.
We then commence our walk through to Assisi, about 220kms away. We arrive in Assisi on a weekend when they're celebrating an ancient Rights of Srping festival. It's an amazing festival apparently, with processions and dancing and markets etc. Should be fun!
Jennifer has been studying the life of St. Francis, and the relevance of this pilgrimage route. She's become a walking encyclodedia on it all. So those who want to know more about St Francis and some of the places we'll be visiting can walk with her, and she'll yabber on for hours!
We'll have a support van with us all the time, and our gorgeous assistant Elena, who will accompany us and help sort any problems should they arise.
The tour is going to be an amazing experience.
