Via di Francesco Florence to Rome is also called Cammino di Francesco. Via di Francesco is an alternative route to the ancient Roman road between Florence and Rome, following in the footsteps of Saint Francis (San Francesco), founder of the Franciscan tradition.
This long-distance walking trail inspired by the life and work of Saint Francis is recommended for experienced walkers as the mountainous terrain makes the trail quite challenging, particularly sections 1 and 3. Walkers, however, will be rewarded with the stunning and peaceful countryside; passing through areas of impressive natural beauty, as well as important Franciscan sites including Assisi and Rieti. The Via di Francesco Florence to Rome finishes at the Vatican, where you can apply for your ‘Testimonium‘ of pilgrimage to Rome.
