We were so missing being able travel during the pandemic, this online tour through Italy along the Via Frangina was almost as satisfying. We enjoyed following along as Kate walked the length of the route, interspersing photos, texts, poems, music and video of herself talking from various points along the route, as she talked about the sights and history along the way. It definitely gave us an itch to try to walk at least some parts of the Via ourselves someday.
Kate was extraordinary. She enabled us to virtually hike the Via Francigena, with scenery, history, culture intermixed along the way. We are hoping to do at least parts of the route in person at some point, and feel we can now make appropriate choices as to what to include.
We learned all about about the scenery, history, geology, geography, flora, people, food, architecture, churches, songs, frescoes, medieval thinking, women pilgrims, and more while watching this walk along the Via Francigena. Molto bene!
Once again, Kate Bolton-Porciatti has dazzled us with the beauty of Italy and her ability to make us feel like we are there with her. This is the best "Conversation" I have experienced with Context, and I have now completed nearly 60. The Via Francigena with Kate is the ultimate "armchair" traveler experience covering history, art, music, architecture, food and wine...everything. I took this 4 part series on 4 consecutive days, which I think is the perfect way to do it. Love that we experienced the snowy, blowy and cold Alps...the rain and wind and puddles the size of lakes in Emilia Romagna and all of the beauty one expects of Tuscany. What a delightful way to pass 6 hours!
It i a memorable journey and I enjoyed every minute of it
