TREKKING ON THE VIA FRANCIGENA


A pilgrimage trail from Canterbury to Rome

San Gimignano is crossed by the Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrimage trail that led pilgrims and merchants to the holy cities of Rome and Jerusalem. Every year it attracts thousands of passionate travelers who set out to rediscover some of the main stages. Stroll along the marked paths (with the words ''VF''), admire the view of the surrounding vineyards or have a picnic in the nature. The stretch from San Gimignano to Monteriggioni worth a visit.
