Imagine stepping into a world where time stands still, where the landscapes are painted with rolling vineyards and ancient hamlets, where every path tells a story. This journey awaits you on the Via Francigena through the heart of Tuscany — a voyage into the soul of Italy, a sensory feast that will leave you with memories etched in the golden hues of Tuscan sunsets.

The Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrimage route stretching from Canterbury to Rome, weaves a tapestry of history and beauty. In Tuscany, this path unfolds like a timeless sonnet, its verses filled with charming hamlets such as San Miniato and Monteriggioni and UNESCO-listed gems like San Gimignano and Siena.

The journey will span approximately 135 kilometres, with each day’s walk ranging from 13 to 24 kilometres. The daily walking time will be around 5 to 7 hours, a leisurely pace that allows you to soak in the beauty around you. The route, mostly on well-defined paths and gravel roads, is adorned with the official signs of the Via Francigena.

Despite a few longer stages, the path is gentle, with minimal elevation gain, making it a pleasant stroll through the stunning Tuscan landscape.

We ensure that your journey is as seamless as possible. We take care of the accommodations, booking hotels that offer a blend of comfort and local charm. You’ll receive a detailed itinerary, complete with GPS navigation via a user-friendly app. We also provide local recommendations, adding a personal touch to your adventure. And should any logistical issues arise, we’re here to resolve them.

Picture yourself exploring mediaeval towns, savouring Tuscan flavours, and walking through landscapes that seem to have leapt out of a painting. So, when the time comes, will you answer the call of Tuscany? Will you let the Via Francigena weave its magic into your story?
