Via Francigena to Rome

Enjoy the best of rural and urban Italy on the historic and celebrated Via Francigena. Since medieval times, thousands of pilgrims have followed this path through spectacular mountains, picturesque vineyards and quaint Italian towns. Much like the Camino de Santiago, the Via Francigena is considered a classic pilgrim's walk that seamlessly combines culture with camaraderie.

The Via Francigena historically starts in Canterbury, England and leads to Rome, Italy, but in the modern era, many begin this journey in Bourg St Pierre, Switzerland. At Macs, we'll be happy to help you plan and personalize an itinerary that best fits your needs, whether you want to complete the Via Francigena as a whole, or walk it in more manageable sections. To start planning your next Italian pilgrimage, take a look through our available itineraries below:
