  1. SIENA Day 1 – Monteriggioni – Siena – Distance :17km Walking time: 3h00 Type of route: almost entierly unpaved

    Again a short segment to allow time in Siena. Apart from the pleasant countryside, there is nothing remarkable along the road. The route is unpaved almost to the arrival in Siena. The clou of the day is the icecream you will have at a cafe on the Piazza del Campo whatching people go by.

  2. BUONCONVENTO Day 2 – Siena – Buonconvento – Distance :36km (31 to Ponte d’Arbia and 19 to the Grancia) Walking time: 6h30 Type of route: almost entierly unpaved

    You will follow a winding route for most of the day until you reach the “Grancia di Cuna” an ancient food storage place fortified to protect it during the neverending wars between towns in the Middle Ages. It also provided shelter for the pilgrims. The stage ends in Ponte d’Arbia and is already very long; what is more, there is no hotel in town so the lady that does your luggage transfer will pick you up and take you to Buonconvento.

  3. SAN QUIRICO D'ORCIA Day 3 – Buonconvento – San Quirico – Distance :23,6km Walking time: 5h00 Type of route: 30% secondary asphalt

    One of the longest day of the whole Francigena with 26 km on an easy terrain. The last third of the road follows the old Cassia. San Quirico was one of the most important stops on the way to Rome and has some of the most interesting buildings in the area with the Collegiata and the remains of an ancient pilgrims hospital.

  4. SANT'ANTIMO Day 4 – Rocca d’ Orcia – Radicofani – Distance: 28km Walking time:6h30

    Because St Antimo abbey is one of the most beautiful places in Tuscany, we decided to walk an older version of the Francigena that doesn’t bypass it.. The route from San Quirico is entirely unpaved and partly on trails. It offers beautiful views of the Ripa d’Orcia castle and of the Orcia gorge. The last stretch climbs steadily among the Brunello vineyards.

  5. ROCCA D'ORCIA Day 5 – Sant’ Antimo – Rocca d’ Orcia – Distance:19km Walking time:5h30

    There are trails which climb to the ridge overlooking the Orcia valley however, depending on the season you may prefer the asphalt road as they are muddy and the “Crete” mud is a sticky clay. The view from the ridge is amazing and the small hamlet where you spend the night is charming.

  6. BOLSENA Day 6 – Proceno – Bolsena – Distance : 29,7km Walking time: 6h3

    The main interest is the scenery once you come in view of the lake. Stop to visit the Basilica del Santo Sepolcro, The St Christina church in Bolsena built in memory of the miracle that is at the origin of the catholic celebrationl of “Corpus Domini”.

  7. MONTEFIASCONE Day 7 – Bolsena – Montefiascone – Distance 17km Walking time:4h0

    A short day along a route that offers nice views of the lake from the sourrounding hills.Possible detour : Civita di Bagnoregio, a spectacular ghost town perched on crumbling high cliff . A UNESCO protected site

What happens if I can’t walk / cycle a stage?

If you find the stage too long or if for any reason you cannot walk at all for one day, let us know the previous week and we can arrange for you to go for a short stretch or for the entire stage with the luggage transfer . In some cases a small fee will be asked and you can pay it directly to the driver.

When is the best time of year?

Generally speaking the best season is certainly from April to October; however, it varies with each stage:
– You can only cross the Alps(week 1) from June 15th to September 15th
– The Appennino mountains (week 4) are more pleasurable from mid May to the end of September
– We suggest that you avoid walking among the rice fields (week 2&3) in full summer

How does the baggage transfers work?

Every morning you leave your luggage at the reception of your accommodation, better with a name-tag and you will find it at your arrival at the next accommodation. It has to be delivered by 2pm

Do you provide GPS files for all days?

Yes, on request we can provide GPS files, but we will still supply the paper description just in case your GPS does not work!
