The EuroVelo 5 route links London with Brindisi (Italy) after 2900 km cycling. It partly retraces the Sigeric’s Via Francigena path, crossing several cities in the heart of Europe. The way is complete in the English part and from Strasbourg to Como. The itinerary we are talking about, from Milan to Rome, follows the cycling route of the Via Francigena (light blue and white road signs) and it is different from the Official path that it is not yet signed and in many parts it is still being planned.
EuroVelo is a network of high-quality cycling ways that links the entire Europe. These are usable both from long-distance cyclists and tourists and/or inhabitants that organize daily trips. The European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) coordinates the development of EuroVelo that so far includes 15 greenways and that is foreseen to be completed within the 2020.
