Good news! From 31 March 2015, the Convento Padri Cappuccini in Pontremoli has reopened. With 30 beds, including 15 in private rooms, in modern accommodation, this is definitely the best place for pilgrims to stay. It has a kitchen for the use of pilgrims. Open from 15:00 to 20:00.

Sadly, the most popular and affordable accommodation for Via Francigena pilgrims arriving in Pontremoli, the Convento Padri Cappuccini, closed in September 2014, although it is expected to reopen at some email@example.com Website: http://www.statuestele.org/ing/253/1/foresteria.htm . Price band: C
Affordable hostel accommodation. The main problem with this accommodation, and there is plenty of it, is that it is managed by the museum (normally located in the castle, but currently in temporary accommodation at the council offices in Palazzo Comunale in the centre of town until the end of December 2014). Accommodation needs to be pre-booked. In order to pick up a key, pilgrims must arrive during working hours, which are 09:00-12:30 and 14:30-17:30. Closed on Mondays. [Opening hours updated 31 October 2014]
