Via Francigena



What you can do

Take the first step on the ancient road that leads from Canterbury to Rome. The Via Francigena is the historical-cultural itinerary that from all of Northern Europe led to the Eternal City and today it has been rediscovered by modern travelers who decide to retrace it. It doesn't matter where you start from, nor does it matter to be great athletes, because the path is within everyone's reach. Set off along a surprising path and follow in the footsteps of pilgrims who, even before the year 1000, crossed our peninsula on foot. They came from the British Isles, from the Kingdom of the Franks, from the most distant regions of the Empire. Make this experience yourself by retracing even a short stretch of the Via Francigena in Lombardy, discovering places full of history, art and traditions, between nature and culture.

Included in the ticket

For all Trenord customers, in possession of the Pilgrim's Credential (issued through the official channels of the European Association of the Vie Francigene), 10% discount on the purchase of the ticket for the railway routes along the Lombard part of the Via Francigena, from which it will then be possible to continue on foot along the way.

In addition, the following ticket offices, interested in the route of the Via Francigena, will be able to put the stamp of the stage on the Pilgrim's Credential:

  • Brescia
  • Milano Centrale
  • Milano Rogoredo
  • Mortara

The 10% discounted train ticket can be purchased for now only at the ticket offices of Milano Centrale, Milano Rogoredo, Brescia, Pavia and Mortara, only by showing the pilgrim's credential; once validated, it is valid for 3 hours for sections within 50 km, 6 hours for sections between 51 and 200 km, 24 hours for sections over 200 km.

The Pilgrim must always be able to show the ticket and the Credential to the control staff, if without only one of the two he is considered without a valid travel document.

The discount applies only to the routes between the stations concerned for 2nd Class travel on Trenord trains (no Malpensa Express).

If you are traveling with bikes, the bike supplement must be purchased at the ordinary rate.


The ticket is non-refundable.
