What you'll do

For a day we will experience the pilgrim life, walking along the Via Francigena, the ancient route that connected Canterbury to Rome. In mediaeval times it was an important road and pilgrimage route for those wishing to visit the Eternal City.
Our pilgrim experience will start in San Gimignano, the beautiful mediaeval borough famous for its towers. We will get the bus to reach our start on the pilgrimage route for coming back on foot to San Gimignano.
Walking along the Francigena path we will enjoy the beautiful landscape of Elsa Valley, the Sanctuary in Pancole and the enchanting Pieve of Cellole.
Finally, we will enter in the heart of San Gimignano for visiting its best spots. I promise you, to reach it on foot, it will be a different way to enjoy it! The return will be by public transport.
Your experience will be environmentally sustainable, we will move on foot and by public transport.
