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. If you like good food and breathtaking scenery this epic trip is for you.
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 if you have some time to spare, we suggest an extra day in Siena.
The Via Francigena then 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 long walking or cycling day. Viterbo is also full of medieval architecture so history buffs will love this town.
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 ancient place. You could also do with a rest!
What a trip of a lifetime, this is one not to miss!
If you have already walked the Camino de Santiago, you will appreciate the Stunning village and scenery, the tasty food, and the quality of accommodation of the Via Francigena.
