Visit wonderful local villages of Bagno Vignoni, with its grand thermal pool in the centre of the square, and Radicofani, whose fortress dominates southern Tuscany. Once you enter Lazio, be in awe of the beauty of Lake Bolsena, and charmed by the ancient paving stones of the Via Cassia, still intact after 2000 years, before visiting the charming old town centre of Viterbo.

If you are lucky you will be able to witness a festival in one of the contradas, and see the work of the skilled flag-throwers, before sitting down at a table in Piazza del Campo to enjoy a plate of pici all’aglione for dinner, admiring the illuminated Palazzo Pubblico.

Trip grading

The Via Francigena Trek from Siena to Viterbo is graded as ‘Medium to Tough’. The trek consists of 9 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 9 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. A wonderful section of Via Francigena, between the lunar landscape of Crete Senesi and the Medieval charm of Viterbo. We suggest that you embark on this trip only if you have previously tested your endurance on other trekking adventures due to the length of the trip and some of the climbs, which may prove challenging – especially the one towards the hilltop town of Radicofani. 

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 training programme will be provided when join the team for this trek to help you with your preparations. Your training should incorporate aerobic (endurance building), anaerobic (strength building) exercises and some good long walks!
