Full Via Francigena | From Lucca to Rome
This is the Full Via Francigena, from Lucca to Rome in Italy. It will take you 20 days walking and 12 days cycling. This epic trip is for you if you like good food and breathtaking scenery.
Starting from Lucca, you will love the old town, the central square, and the cafes. It continues through Siena, famous for the Palio festival that takes place twice a year in summer. Siena is also a hub of culture, art, fashion, and gastronomy, so we suggest an extra day in Siena if you have some time to spare.
The Via Francigena continues to UNESCO world heritage Val D’orcia and lovely San Quirico D’orcia.
Entering Lazio, you will pass the refreshing scenery of Bolsena lake and the medieval town of Viterbo. Viterbo is known for its spas and hot waters, which are very rewarding after a prolonged walking or cycling day. Viterbo is also full of medieval architecture so that history buffs will love this town.
Finally, from Lucca to Rome, the Full Via Francigena penetrates deep into Lazio towns and villages, across verdant scenery, to enter Rome on the Via Trimphale and the Vatican.
After your triumphant arrival in Rome, we suggest spending a couple of days in the city, visiting the major historical sites and soaking up the wonderful atmosphere of this old place. You could also do it with a rest!
What a trip of a lifetime, this is one not to miss!
