In this itinerary the traveler is invited to ideally hold the pilgrim’s staff or, more secularly, to become a wayfarer, in order to go along the Apulian stretch of the road known as Via Francigena in the South or Via Sacra Longobardorum, rich in history, art and culture. Following the route of an old Roman consular road never completely abandoned, the Via Appia-Traiana, we will get to the region’s port towns, which have always been key embarkation points for pilgrims, Crusaders, Templars or merchants who wanted to reach the fabulous East over the Middle Ages. Following in their footsteps and guided by their stories and travel journals, we will finally head for the Ionian Islands, a nearly necessary step for people who once sailed towards or from the Holy Land or the rich eastern markets.
