Italy: Umbria

Walk the path of Sigerico; The Francigena Way from Orvieto to Rome

  • Pilgrimage route to Rome
  • Stunning landscapes
  • Orvieto and its Cathedral
  • Picturesque villages, historic abbeys and volcanic lakes

The Francigena Way is an historical journey; a road which once led from Canterbury to Rome and which has been walked by thousands of pilgrims. This trip begins in the beautiful city of Orvieto which boasts arguably the most beautiful cathedral in Italy. From here walk through Tuscia Laziale, an agricultural region of fields and olive groves dotted with volcanic lakes. Following the ancient Via Cassia, pass through beautiful villages such as Montefiascone, the fortified city of Viterbo, the Etruscan necropolis and the Roman amphitheatre of Sutri and the small medieval churches of Vetrallla and Campagnano. The path continues, through thick forests of oaks and past ruined abbeys and control towers, and ends in Rome; the 'Eternal City'.
