In the lands of the Countess Matilde di Canossa the trail crosses the Po Valley Plain and rises into the Apennines, then dropping down toward Lucca where it joins the Francigena Way and continues to the papal throne at Rome.
The route of Matilde’s Way now joins Mantua, a UNESCO city and perhaps the birthplace ...
It is a great European trail that penetrates the cultural, historic, economic and religious thinking of the European Continent.
Matilde’s Way of the Holy Face rejoins the Francigena Way in Tuscany.
