Via Francigena in Toscana
Da Lucca a Siena e la Val d’Orcia – 220 km tra città storiche e crete senesi
Walking in Tuscany is experiencing the harmony between man and nature, entering the beauty and mystery of so many works of art, churches, squares, discovering the secrets of hospitality of yesterday and today. All in the footsteps of the ancient pilgrims heading to Rome, along one of the most fascinating stretches of the Via Francigena which crosses, among others, Altopascio, San Gimignano, San Miniato and Monteriggioni. An itinerary in 9 stages, to be covered in one breath, or to be enjoyed in small sips, like a good glass of wine. With useful information for travelling: detailed maps, altimetry, route description, places to sleep and places to visit. In addition, many curious cards to learn about the food and wine excellences and traditions of this land. An agile guide: for pilgrims, for those who love art and boundless spaces, for first-time walkers.
