Via Francigena to Rome

The Via Francigena is an ancient road and pilgrimage trail from Canterbury to Rome. Hiking this route through rural Italy allows you to meet new people, cross unique landscapes, and taste the local cuisine. This is a truly immersive experience visiting authentic Italian villages with vibrant medieval piazzas and street-side cafes.

There are many highlights to be discovered such as crossing the Great St Bernard Pass, which takes you from the heart of the Swiss Alps across the Italian border into the Aosta Valley. Another fascinating trail runs along the foothills of the scenic Apennine Mountains where you can sample the world-famous cured meats and cheeses of the Parma region. Some say that Tuscany is the most romantic Italian region, and you might agree when hiking in rolling Tuscan landscapes between vineyards and medieval hilltop villages. With many unique landscapes to select from, you can be sure to find one that matches your interests.
