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.
