Easy Via Francigena from San Miniato to Siena in 1 week
If you are looking to experience the Easy Via Francigena from San Miniato in Tuscany at your own pace, this is the perfect trip for you.
You will be walking the picturesque stretch of the Via Francigena from San Miniato to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Siena.
This itinerary has fewer kilometers each day than the main Via Francigena Lucca to Siena.
You will walk through the heart of Tuscany across rolling hills and beautiful woodland over 7 days and staying in the gorgeous villages along the way, including San Gimignano, which means you will be covering a manageable overall average of under 20kms per day. Your longest day will be 24 km and your shortest day will be 13km.
This will give you time to slow down and appreciate all that the beautiful Italian countryside and quaint towns have to offer. Walkers should particularly enjoy walking through the Olive groves of Tuscany.
The town of San Gimignano itself is truly breathtaking with its medieval towers. There are plenty of historical sites and churches to visit and spend time along the way.
The Easy Via Francigena ends in the magnificent Siena, steeped in art, history, culture, and gastronomy.
It is worth taking an extra day to spend in Siena to truly appreciate its unique charm.
If you travel in July or August, you might be able to witness one of Italy’s most traditional horse races: the Palio di Siena. If you travel in Autumn, this part of Tuscany is world-famous for its white truffles so foodies are in for a treat! All along the way, you will taste delicious Italian cuisine.
