    Together with the Way of Saint James and the pilgrimage to Jerusalem, the Via Francigena is one of the most important pilgrimage routes.

    The 1700km itinerary leads to Rome from Canterbury, passing through England, France, Switzerland and Italy. The Way crosses all Italy from North to South passing by some of the most beautiful areas of the country such as the Alps, Tuscany, the countryside of Lazio and Rome.

    This walking holiday explores the final stage of the Via Francigena, the Pilgrim Route reaching Rome and Vatican City.

    This last section starts in Viterbo, a charming thermal city, then it passes by the lovely little town of Sutri with its Etruscan ruins and the forest of Parco di Veio before arriving at Monte Mario that offers an amazing view of Rome and San Pietro church. It ends in Rome, the goal of the entire pilgrimage, city of art, history and culture and centre of the Catholic religion with Vatican city.
