This section of the St Francis Way takes you through the heart of Italy and is inspired by the life of St Francis of Assisi. The walk will take you through the incredible Valle Umbra, passing through olive groves, vineyards, farmland and some of the best-preserved Roman towns in Italy. You will be then into the green heart of Italy through forests and river valleys and ending up in the town of Rieti. You will experience some stunning, striking and varied countryside in central Italy.
The trail then brings you to the Monteluco National Park and the woods overlooking the city of Rieti.
