LEARN MORE ABOUT THE VIA FRANCIGENA
< Picture with permission of Association internationale Via Francigena
At this site you can find out more about the history, topography, routes etc. You can join the association, order maps for the Canterbury to Gr St Bernard section or Gr St Bernard to Roma, as well as a Guida with suggestions for accommodation and alternate routes.
At this site you can download maps for free as well as a manual (only in Italian) and a pilgrim's passport. They also send out a monthly e-newsletter and regular up-dates or changes to the routes.

And a beautiful site with an overview of the complete route as well as the routes through England, France, Switzerland and Italy:
