Via Francigena to Rome
The Via Francigena route is an ancient pilgrimage trail from Canterbury to Rome. It has been a pilgrimage route since medieval times and has enjoyed a recent revival since the Via Francigena was designated a European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe in 1994.
The Via Francigena is a classic pilgrim's trail where you will receive a pilgrims passport and have it stamped along the route. While it is an ancient route, as yet it has nowhere near the popularity of the Camino Frances, despite it being every bit as beautiful. Whether you want to walk the final stage into Rome, a beautiful section in Tuscany or the whole route from Bourg St Pierre to Rome, we have you covered.
Walking through rural Italy, meeting the people and tasting the local cuisine could not be a more immersive and enchanting way to explore the country.
