Via Francigena WEEK 7
This week takes you through the scenic rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down cypress-lined, winding roads in Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage landscape. After you cross the gorgeous vineyards & olive groves of Tuscany, you will enter the province of Lazio. Enjoy the volcanic lake at Bolsena, as well as the town’s notable 11th-century church. From there continue to Montefiascone, an ancient town with a thriving winemaking culture. This peaceful & beautiful journey is full of wonders – castles, palaces, towers, wineries – but also provides plenty of space & time to reflect.
San Quirico is difficult to reach as it has no railway station. The nearest train station is Buonconvento, from which a bus departs every 2-3 hours. However, we can easily arrange a private transfer from Buonconvento at your convenience. Waiting for you at your hotel will be all the material you need for your trip: hotel vouchers, a detailed description of the trail, the GPS maps, & the pilgrim’s “passport” (credenziale). You will also be told where to go to receive a benediction by a priest, should you desire one.
- La Collegiata in San Quirico
