The Via Francigena in Tuscany is from today an experience to enjoy online, using Google Maps Street View, thanks to the Google Trekker Loan Program.

Step by step, picture after picture, the project to map the 380 km and the 15 stages of the Via Francigena in Tuscany comes true, through people travelling along the footpaths with a Google Trekker backpack, lugging 25 kilos of equipment in a metal framework studded with an aerial and many cameras shooting thousands of stunning views at a startling rate of eight every ten seconds

A lot of steps, a lot of shooting, an unique goal…an unique experience of an itinerary that links the past to the future through a sequence of geo-referenced pictures then makes up the online route along the Via Francigena, inviting everybody to experience it.
