"We recently used Francigena Ways Tours to walk a week of the Via Francigena in Italy. They handled daily luggage transfers, all hotels and most meals. Their service was excellent and affordably priced. They were flexible in accommodating a special modification to their standard tour and communications with them were prompt and accurate. The ONLY problem we had were our bags were late one day. We called their in-country phone number and the agent knew exactly who we were and where we were and fixed the problem quickly. Highly recommended." For more information about this Via Francigena tour: Via Francigena to Rome.

"I just completed a 17-day walk from Lausanne, Switzerland, to Vercelli, Italy, using Camino Ways, or technically, their affiliate, Francigena Ways. They delivered a great and rather exclusive itinerary. As I've written here before, the strength of the company is their ability to provide hotels and baggage services for the less traveled Camino routes. And they execute well. First off, the Via Francigena (going from Canterbury, England, to Rome) has far fewer walkers than the Camino de Santiago. You will often go several days without seeing a fellow walker. However, the scenery and historical sites often outshine its better-known competitor. My route from Lausanne, Switzerland, to Vercelli, Italy, is considered second only to the stretch in Tuscany for its beauty (been there, done that). It was a great route overall, but several days in particular were spectacular: 1) the first day walking along Lake Geneva to Vevey; 2) the climb up the St. Bernard Pass in Switzerland and the descent the next day into Italy; 3) the ancient Roman town of Aosta and its surrounding alpine scenery; 4) the castles of Verres and Issogne; and 5) the first day's transition from the Aosta Valley to Piedmont, specifically the walk from Ivrea to Viverone. Highly recommend!"

Walk the last 100km of the Via Francigena, the Camino to Rome, to get your ‘Testimonium’ of pilgrimage to the ever-fascinating Eternal City. From medieval Viterbo, Francigena pilgrims will follow Roman roads, paths, forest trails and dirt tracks across the scenic, hilly and vibrant green Lazio countryside.

Explore pretty towns and villages en-route with their street markets and lively buzz; staying in countryside hotels and agriturismos. Before starting your walk on the Camino to Rome, you should take some time to explore Viterbo’s charming old town with its Papal palace (Palazzo dei Papi), cathedral, quaint Medieval quarter and many churches, squares. Stroll through any of the intriguing little lanes to enjoy a fresh Italian coffee.

The last walking day will see you arriving in the Vatican along the famous ‘Via Triumphale’, with sweeping views of Rome from Monte Mario, one of the city’s highest hills. We can also arrange a free Papal audience on Wednesdays.

Once you have arrived in the Eternal City we recommend you spend a couple of days to visit one of Europe’s most wonderful cities and its famous historic landmarks: the Colosseum, Castel Sant Angelo, the Trevi Fountain and so much more. Enjoy walking in the historic center of Italy on this unique walking tour.
