The Vía Francigena itinerary from 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.
You are at the point of the Via Francigena whose distance from Rome is the minimum you will have to travel on foot to get the 'Testimonium' once you have arrived in Rome.
From Acquapendente to Bolsena
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.
From Bolsena to Montefiascone
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.
From Montefiascone to Viterbo
As soon as you leave Montefiascone you will find a nice monument to the pilgrim, located on a terrace whose views will encourage you to stop there a few minutes before starting the route.
You will walk along the old Cassia road, crossing long and ancient basalt slab trails in very good condition for having been placed there several centuries ago.
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.
Take the opportunity to explore the historic centre where the urban centre is located surrounded by an ancient wall, visit the Palace of the Popes, the Plaza del Plebiscito and the Palacio dei Priori.
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 to Sutri
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. When you reach Sutri you will be able to explore the city and visit the Roman amphitheatre and the Etruscan tombs.
From Sutri to Campagnano di Roma
We leave the beautiful city of Sutri and in the first part of the stage, we will cross the fields, streams and waterfalls until we reach Campagnano di Roma; A cosy city full of medieval architecture.
From Campagnano di Roma to La Storta
Once out of Campagnano, the road will lead us to contemplate the fields of Lazio. We will walk through the Sorbo Valley and contemplate its spectacular panoramic views. Soon after, we arrive in La Storta.
From La Storta to Rome
Throughout this stage, we will walk along the Via Cassia until we reach the Parco dell'Insugherata, a wild oasis in Rome. Before arriving in the city, we will arrive at Monte Mario where we can enjoy incredible panoramic views.
