Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrimage route similar to the trail of Santiago di Compostela in Spain, covers 1900kms from Canterbury to Rome. Crossing 4 European countries: the UK, France, Switzerland and Italy; it travels through areas of spectacular beauty and historic interest.

Following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims, you’ll walk the final 100kms of the legendary trail from Montefiascone to the Vatican City through the rolling hills Tuscany. The Via Francigena route is a Council of Europe European Cultural Itinerary since 1994 and Major Cultural Route since 2004 plus it’s much quieter than the Camino de Santiago routes in Spain.

Marvel at a fine blend of scenic beauty with vibrant green countryside dotted with vineyards, hazel & olive groves, huge old oak trees and some of Europe’s largest volcanic lakes. Plus enjoy some well deserved rest stops and the chance to meet friendly locals with passing through medieval towns, remote hilltop monasteries and quaint Italian villages. Add fabulous food and wine into the mix and you have the perfect recipe for a trip to remember especially with the grand finale of entering the Vatican City.

Enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your luggage will be transferred with ease and a good night’s rest awaits at each of the family run hotels enroute. Your local guide has indepth knowledge of the trail and is passionate to share this with you.

They say all roads lead to Rome, though this one warrants an incredible adventure!

Level of difficulty

The Via Francigena Trek is graded as ‘Medium’. The trek consists of 6 consecutive days of walking. Your luggage is transferred between hotels, so you only need to take a day pack with you on the walks. The terrain and type of path will vary from paved tracks, tarmac, forest trails to gravel. The walks are not technically difficult although there are some steep ascents and descents, so a good level of fitness is required. 

It’s important to bear in mind that the distances walked some of the days are long and you are expected to walk 6 days in a row so there is a high chance to get blisters. We recommend to take extra care in making sure that your hiking boots are comfortable and well worn in. We advise bringing hiking boots and trail running trainers as this will allow you to alternate them at any stage to avoid blisters and pain.

Preparation is key to help you get the most enjoyment and reward from this trek. A good level of fitness, endurance and some gritty determination will help you conquer each day.

Training

A bespoke trek training programme will be provided when join the team for this adventure to help you with your preparations together with some top tips.

We also have exclusive offers with our Training Partners and Communities – Her Spirit and the Bath Kettlebell Society. For more info, please visit our Training and Preparation page.

The more you are prepared, the more you will enjoy the trek.

Our motto is: Train hard, smile harder and enjoy the journey!

Training weekends

We have a variety of tailored training weekends available to ensure you’re fully prepared for your trek. These training weekends are the perfect way to help you gauge your fitness and training progress under the careful guidance of our experienced leaders. Plus the leaders will chat through your specific trip and also provide guidance and tips relating to clothing and equipment, health and well-being, packing, trekking skills (walking on different terrain/heat/using trekking poles), teamwork and much more to ensure you are fully prepared and ready for your adventure ahead.

We predominantly host our training weekends in Snowdonia given the wide variety of terrain available to practice and where Chief Ewe’s, Jim or Sue, can meet you too. It’s a great way for you to meet fellow members of the flock and ask any questions, no matter how big or small. We’re here to make sure you’re ready.

Food & drinks

7 breakfasts and 2 dinners are included in your trekking adventure.

When you think Italy, you think delicious food & wine and this trek offers a fine blend of both.

Breakfasts are provided at your hotel and are usually continental or Italian-style with a choice of bread, croissants, meats, and cheeses.

Lunches are a combination of picnics or enjoying a well earned break at a local cafe enroute. 

Dinners are taken in local restaurants allowing you the flexibility to sample your choice of fine Italian meals whilst supporting the local communities we visit.

‘La Cucina Romana’ (Roman food) is based on an ancient past and you will find on many menus inexpensive cuts of veal and lamb, fresh vegetables and plenty of the local sheeps’ cheese; Pecorino Romano. Recommended dishes to try are bruschetta (bread with garlic, olive oil and fresh tomatoes), porchetta (pork carved from a herb stuffed pig), carciofi alla guidia (fried artichokes), fave al guanciale (broad beans, often served with pork), baccala (codfish), pasta e ceci (pasta with chickpeas, a simple, old and delicious recipe), cacio e pepe (pasta served with pecorino and black pepper; simple but surprisingly delicious), saltimbocca alla romana (veal wrapped in proscuitto and fried) and not forgetting one of the most famous meal in Roma Rigatoni carbonara. 

Finish with your evening meals with a classic Roman dessert; crostata di ricotta (cheesecake) or a fine Italian coffee.

If you enjoy the odd tipple of wine, then this trek’s for you. On day one in Montefiascone, enjoy sampling a glass the straw coloured Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone (also known as Est! Est!! Est!!!). Also try Frascati, referred to by Romans as the Golden Wine both for its colour and value, or Cesanese del Piglio which is a full bodied red.
