The Cammino di Francesco, also called Via Francigena di San Francesco or Saint Francis Way, follows a spiritual route inspired by St Francis of Assisi and has been walked by pilgrims to Rome over centuries.
Divided in four sections, the Cammino di Francesco trail starts in the stunning city of Florence and crosses lush Umbria on its way to Rome and the Vatican.
The Way of St Francis passes many important Franciscan sites such as the Santuario della Verna, the breath taking Sanctuary of Poggio Bustone and Assisi, as well as the Rieti Valley, also called the Sacred Valley, with its surrounding hills and mountains.
Other stunning highlights of the Cammino di Francesco include spectacular natural wonders such as the Marmore Waterfalls and the gorgeous town of Gubbio. This trail of exceptional natural beauty is a fantastic walking trip, ideal for experienced walkers and hikers looking for a peaceful encounter with nature in one of Italy’s most beautiful regions.
Sections 2 and 3 of the St Francis Way (from Sansepolcro to Rieti), two of the more stunning but challenging sections, cross the beautiful Apennines. They are perfect trails for keen hikers and walkers looking for an exceptional mountain trek in the heart of Italy.
