Discover the Via Francigena and dare to travel the last 140 km, a necessary requirement to obtain your “Testimonium” pilgrimage.

We will start in Acquapendente, from where the distance exceeds by a few kilometres the amount required to obtain your certificate, so you can definitely take home the testimony that you have travelled the path to Rome.

We will walk along Roman roads, dirt tracks and through forests until we reach our final destination. The Via Francígena is also the central route that pilgrims travel to reach, over the centuries, the three major pilgrimages: Rome, Santiago y Jerusalem.

Once you start the adventure on the Via Francigena, the central stretch of the great pilgrimage to the three main Christian destinations, we recommend that you stop on the way to get to know the old town of Viterbo, visit its Papal Palace, the medieval quarter, the cathedral, alleys and their squares and churches.

Once immersed in the Roman culture offered by this city, you can continue the Via Francigena until you reach the last stage. From the “Mons Gaudii” viewpoint (The Mount of Joy), we can observe the best panorama of the Vatican.

Arriving in the Eternal City, we recommend you spend a few days strolling through the centre, taste its delicious gastronomy, and visit its incredible monuments such as the Roman Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, Castel de Sant’angelo, among others.

The Vía Francigena itinerary from Acquapendente

Acquapendente

In Acquapendente, as soon as you arrive, we suggest that you visit its cathedral, within which you will find the oldest reproduction in Europe of the ancient church of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.

From Acquapendente to Bolsena

Breakfast included.

On your first day you will find many fields that you will see on your path for several kilometres. Along the way, you will find only one village: San Lorenzo Nuovo. If you have not brought the necessary water and food for the day, this is the place to make a stop.

You will go along a forested path, which in the end will welcome you with the immensity of the beautiful Lake Bolsena and its tree-filled surroundings.

In Bolsena you will find slopes and medieval streets that you will fall in love with. We recommend that you visit the Church of Santa Cristina the Martyr. You can also get to know the Fortress Tower, from where you will have an incredible panoramic view of the whole city and Lake Bolsena.

As you walk towards Montefiascone, you will go around Lake Bolsena on the right-hand side. Some small rivers will also accompany you with their sound as you advance through forests.

As a curious fact, we tell you that in Montefiascone, you will find the signage that only 100 kilometres are left until your arrival in Rome. Take the opportunity to visit St. Margaret's Cathedral. Its striking dome will attract you to it.

You will arrive in Viterbo, an Italian town in the province of Viterbo, in the Lazio region, famous for its volcanic landscapes, lakes and beautiful mountains.

From Viterbo to Vetralla

Some information about Viterbo before you leave it: and for a time it was there that the Popes were chosen.

Leaving Viterbo, the route transforms into ascents and descents between forests and beautiful fields. We will cross the abbey of La Quercia and Bagnaia, avoid the main roads and so travel the hills until we reach Vetralla.

Along the way you will go around large wheat fields as well as olive groves and multiple cottages where you can see just the animals that take care of them.

From Vetralla, we will continue on the Via Francigena until the next stage that will take you to the city of Sutri. During the tour you will find beautiful trails surrounded by forests and farmland.
