The starting point is different from the ending point, with overnight stays in different hotels and daily stages.


Day 1: Siena
Individual arrival and overnight stay in a hotel situated just outside the historical centre of Siena, approximately 1 km from Piazza del Campo.

Day 2: Siena – Buonconvento – San Quirico d’Orcia (57 km; +/-750 m)
The first leg is surrounded by breathtaking panoramas. You will leave Siena and cycle through the gentle hills of the Val d’Arbia just outside the historical centre. The path of the Francigena intertwines with that of the Eroica until Buonconvento, a charming medieval village. You will finally cross the Brunello region before reaching your final destination in the Val d’Orcia, a world heritage site. Free dinner and overnight stay in a hotel with swimming pool in San Quirico d’Orcia.

Day 3: San Quirico d’Orcia – Proceno (62 km; +/-890 m)
Today you will cycle surrounded by landscapes of the Val d’Orcia. In the early part of the route, you will visit the spa village of Bagno Vignoni, with its extraordinary thermal pool in the town square. Leaving Bagno Vignoni, a paved road down the valley and a long ascent will lead you to Radicofani, which offers unique views of the entire Val d’Orcia region. Leaving Radicofani, the road descends into the Paglia Valley, where the landscape is dominated by rolling hills and Mount Amiata. After a short stint on the Cassia road, you'll head towards the beautiful village of Proceno on a long gravel road. Free dinner and overnight stay at the Castello di Proceno.

Day 4: Proceno – Viterbo (60 km; +/-930 m)
After a passage through the centre of Acquapendente, the stage continues without difficulty to San Lorenzo Nuovo, where you get a first splendid view of Bolsena Lake. As you approach the lake, you will enjoy a pleasant route on dirt roads, a continuous up and down among olive groves, meadows and woods, with the beautiful views of Bolsena Lake in the background. The route moves away from Bolsena along the Cassia road, offering the last views of the lake, towards Montefiascone. The following stretch is one of the most spectacular, on the ancient basalt pavement of the Via Cassia, still in excellent condition. You will finally cross the Bagnaccio thermal baths, a series of hot water pools, always frequented by pilgrims passing along the Via Francigena, until you reach the centre of Viterbo. Free dinner and overnight stay at a hotel in the centre of Viterbo.

Day 5: Viterbo – Campagnano (65 km; +/-980 m)
Today's route is characterised by beautiful ups and downs between fields and woods, predominantly on asphalt roads, until you reach the town of Vetralla. The itinerary will then take you towards the charming village of Capranica and Sutri, with its Amphitheatre carved into the tuff and the beautiful old town. Later you will arrive at Monterosi and the Monte Gelato waterfalls, the falls along the Treja river, where you can rest and swim before getting back on your bike and arriving at Campagnano. Free dinner and overnight at a hotel in Campagnano.

Day 6: Campagnano – Rome (46 km; +/-420 m)
Today you will complete your pilgrimage on the Via Francigena. Given the limited number of kilometers and difficulty of the route, we suggest you start as early as possible and arrive in Rome for lunch so that you can enjoy this wonderful city more leisurely. The route will be quite busy at times, but if you want we can suggest alternative routes to reach the cycle path along the Tiber River. You will finally reach St. Peter's Square, where you can take a final photo and begin discovering this wonderful city. Free dinner and overnight stay in a hotel located a short distance from the centre of Rome. Alternatively, you can decide to visit the city, meet the staff and return to Siena by van.

Day 7: Rome
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure. Possibility of extending the stay.
