The Via Francigena is the general name of an ancient road and pilgrim route running from France to Rome. The route was known in Italy as the Via Francigena (“the road that comes from France”) or the Via Romea Francigena (“the road to Rome that comes from France”). In medieval times it was an important road and pilgrimage route for those wishing to visit the Holy See and the tombs of the apostles Peter and Paul.
The entire Tuscan section of the Via Francigena - 380 km of history, culture, traditions and stunning landscapes - has recently been made safer and the infrastructure has been fully restored.
