Pretzel, South Africa - September
"I walked the route form Lucca to Colle di Val d’Elsa for 5 days in September with 2 friends. From the booking process to the information needed for this trip, right to the end, the service of Caminoways was excellent. They even phone before the start of the trip to find out if I am happy with everything, which I thought was a nice touch. The signs on the route was marked very well. I also used the off line maps on my phone which I found on the Via Francigena website.All the accommodation was centrally located, with some better than others. The food was overall very good. The breakfast at some places was a bit feeble for the days walk, but that is typical of Italy. The luggage transfers went smoothly.The first day of walking from Lucca to Altopascio was mostly on roads with traffic. The least interesting day of all the days. Day 2 to San Miniato (29 km) was quite a challenge due to the heat, but the route was beautiful and mainly flat through rural areas, ending with a 3 km climb to San Miniato. What a stunning town, with amazing views. Most beautiful town. Day 3 to Gambassi Terme I enjoyed the most. 24 km through vineyards, olive groves and farms. No towns on the way. I walked mainly on my own this day. I felt safe all the way. Gambassi Terme was another beautiful town which did not have many tourists. Day 4 and 5 were both short distances (± 14 km per day) through stunning environments and quite hilly. This was the first hiking trip I did and it is as if another world has opened up for me. I loved it. Nice to have a challenge every day, with a bit of figuring out the route along the way. A different way of exploring a new area. I will definitely use Caminoways again!!!"

We have been blessed to have three pilgrimages organized by the Camino Ways team -- and each one has been perfect. We've done the entire French Way to Santiago, the Via Francigena in Italy and are presently back on the Camino in Spain on a shorter trip. Camino Ways made all these trips possible. Because of their customer service, relationships with small private hotels and luggage transfer companies, we could focus on the walk itself. We could not have organized these relaxing and wonderful trips ourselves. There's enough stress involved in doing a pilgrimage ... walking the miles ... being in a foreign country. Camino Ways allowed us to focus on the Camino itself rather than logistics. They have also done a great job of helping us with a few needed changes to the current trip. We're very grateful. Feel free to contact me if you'd like more details. 20 April 2018

"I just completed a 17-day walk from Lausanne, Switzerland, to Vercelli, Italy, using Camino Ways, or technically, their affiliate, Francigena Ways. They delivered a great and rather exclusive itinerary. As I've written here before, the strength of the company is their ability to provide hotels and baggage services for the less traveled Camino routes. And they execute well. First off, the Via Francigena (going from Canterbury, England, to Rome) has far fewer walkers than the Camino de Santiago. You will often go several days without seeing a fellow walker. However, the scenery and historical sites often outshine its better-known competitor. My route from Lausanne, Switzerland, to Vercelli, Italy, is considered second only to the stretch in Tuscany for its beauty (been there, done that). It was a great route overall, but several days in particular were spectacular: 1) the first day walking along Lake Geneva to Vevey; 2) the climb up the St. Bernard Pass in Switzerland and the descent the next day into Italy; 3) the ancient Roman town of Aosta and its surrounding alpine scenery; 4) the castles of Verres and Issogne; and 5) the first day's transition from the Aosta Valley to Piedmont, specifically the walk from Ivrea to Viverone. Highly recommend!"

This leg took 8 days with a stop over in the stunning San Gimignano - what a place! We went at the end of June. The first 4 days were very difficult as it was about 36 degrees and it was difficult when you where in the open countryside trying to find shade. The main problem we found on some of the routes was trying to find places to get water. We'd a particular problem going from San Miniato to Gambassi Terme (24 kms) where luckily we found a water pump behind a derelict church. There was literally no other places en route. As a result we had to carry loads of water each day. Also we started the walk on a Monday and almost everywhere was closed! Another thing to mention. We wore trainers because it was dry but we got caught in a thunderstorm and the dry clay paths turned to mud making it very difficult so maybe some more robust footwear would be advisable even in Summer. The signposting is generally good with a mish mash of different types of signs. The countryside is stunning and the towns you pass through amazing. It was a great experience. We ended our trip in Siena which is such an interesting and awe inspiring place.
