All roads lead to Rome. The Via Francigena is an ancient road to Rome, passing through England, France Switzerland and finally Italy. In medieval times it was an important road for the pilgrims heading south, and is since 1994 designated as a European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe. The route travels through some of the most stunning scenery in Europe, such as Kent, WWI battlefields, Champagne, Alps, Abruzzo, Umbria, Tuscany, Lazio, with the majority of the walking taking place on off-road tracks and ancient Roman roads.

I walked from Lucca to Rome and Tuscia had some of the loveliest countryside (Tuscany a great disappointment). Paths are generally well curated and well signposted. Few walkers and much better than the Camino de Santiago which has less attractive countryside and become so overcrowded...More

We got back from the Via Francigena, last Saturday, having had a brilliant time walking on the last 100kms. This was partly helped by wonderful sunny weather: The countryside between Viterbo and Rome was stunning, especially with the autumn colours, and it felt quite iconic...More

For those who have enjoyed the way to Santiago, the via Francigena offers something similar and different. Much less crowded, but full of history and spirituality. It is a major pilgrimage itinerary through Europe (Canterbury, France, Switzerland and Italy, to Rome) ; there is, as...More
