- The hiking itinerary covers 253 Km (158 mi) between Assisi and Rome, following the path of the “Via Francigena di San Francesco”, also known as “La Via di Roma”. This is one of the ancient pilgrimage routes to Rome, presumably the same followed by Francis of Assisi and his mates in 1212.
- Walk “from door to door”, setting off from your hotel and reaching the new one directly on foot, at the end of each daily stage.
- Take the full journey or any part of it: in order to be entitled to the “Testimonium” certificate issued by St Peter’s Basilica, it is necessary to walk at least from Rieti to Rome.
Difficulty level of daily legs: from easy to challenging. See programme for details.
