Inauguration of the walking route from Malpensa Airport
to the Sanctuary of S. Maria in Piazza in Busto Arsizio.
The Malpensa airport gateway of the Way
The route Cammino di Sant'Agostino benefits the proximity of three airports: Malpensa, Linate and Orio al Serio airports, among the busiest in Italy. Malpensa airport particularly is characterized by its vocation as a wide-ranging hub, able to convey visitors from all over the world to Lombardy region. It seemed us therefore useful to define a new walking route able to directly connect the Malpensa airport (Terminal 1) to the the St. Augustine Way, which passes precisely to the Busto Arsizio Sanctuary of Santa Maria in Piazza.
Fromthis link, the detailed route from Malpensa airport to Busto Arsizio downtown.
These 15 km - perhaps for the first time in the pilgrimage history - will allow future foreign pilgrims who will land at Malpensa to start walking the path just left the airport, giving life to an innovative sustainable tourism project: a path that will allow walkers to undertake the Augustinian Way more easily, but also, once arrived in the city of Pavia, to undertake other historic and important walking routes.
We are pleased to introduce the Guide to the Way of St.Augustine, also known as the Way of the Rose that runs from Monza to Pavia. All information is inside: maps, accommodation, religious, cultural and historical context of visited sites along the route, backpacking and planning suggestions.
The Guide is available in Italian and Swiss (only Canton of Ticino) bookstores.
