Full Italian Via Francigena: Bourg St Pierre-Rome

  • Walking the Italian Via Francigena, one of Europe's great pilgrimages from the Alps to Rome
  • Follow trails through classic Italian landscapes and visit exquisite towns
  • Taste regional specialties: wine, pasta, cured meats, cheeses, and gelato
  • Becoming immersed in the culture and history of each region
  • Experience aspects of Italy that are missed by other travellers
The Via Francigena is one of Europe's great walks that pilgrims have been undertaking since the 8th century. Follow trails from the Swiss-Italian border through classic Italian landscapes, visiting towns and villages that are rich in culture and artistic treasure. Pass through many distinct Italian landscapes such as the high mountain pass of St Bernard, tracing the vineyard-covered foothills of the Apennine mountains, iconic Tuscan landscapes, medieval towns, and finally from the hilltop town of Montefiascone down into Rome. You'll be reminded of the route's historic past with many references to the thousands upon thousands of pilgrims who walked the same routes in the Middle Ages to Rome to visit the tomb of the Apostle Peter.
