Do you aspire to walk part of the famous Via Francigena on foot? We have created special itineraries allowing you to experience this beautiful pilgrimage in its finest splendour, taking you into the Eternal City of Rome and its breathtaking Basilica. Each day ranges in length (see our itineraries for specific figures) but will all allow you time to explore your destination before dinner.

The Experience 

Without doubt this holiday is about more than the usual joys of walking! Maybe you previously completed all or part of the Camino de Santiago and wish to sample a less trodden pilgrim route which has now been re-established since it was lost in time. In addition to the typically delicious Italian food and wines served in your hotel at the end of each day’s walk, you will also enjoy the special atmosphere arising from the comradeship quickly established between 

walkers of many nationalities.


Two to three weeks before you depart you will receive all of your holiday documents which include your Pilgrim Credenciale. Besides your personal details, it also provides space for collecting stamps at your hotels which is necessary to prove that you have accomplished the pilgrimage so you can obtain the testimonium. You receive the Testimonium, by entering the Vatican City through the gate called "Ingresso del Petriano” in the “Piazza del Sant’Uffizio” between 09.30 - 12.30 - please note this is closed on Wednesdays and Sundays. This is a truly unique experience; as a Pilgrim to Rome you are allowed into parts of the Vatican City no other visitors are permitted to venture.

Groups

We are very happy to arrange this holiday for groups; we have great experience in doing so with our popular Camino de Santiago holidays. Perhaps you are from a single church or are within a group of like-minded walkers who would like to experience this famous pilgrimage together.

Self-Guided & Guided

We offer this trek on a self-guided and guided basis. If you are familiar with the Camino de Santiago, you will know that it is well way-marked and there is no real need for a guide. In contrast, the Via Francigena is less well way-marked (although our route notes and maps provide you with the information you need) and we can recommend a local guide, certainly for larger groups who would enjoy some extra assistance and local knowledge. Please enquire for a guided walking supplement.     


Baggage Transfers

Luggage can be transported from hotel-to-hotel enabling you to travel with just a day rucksack. Unlike our other treks, baggage transfer is an optional extra as many Pilgrims prefer to travel light and carry their own. There is a limit of 20kg per bag. See prices below.

Variations

Our basic itinerary can be varied when possible. You may take rest days in one of the existing stops or stay longer in some of the delightful villages if you wish. You can also combine two days into one if you are happy with walking longer distances. Just contact us with your wishes and we will provide a quotation.
