Via Francigena: Orvieto to Rome Tour Reviews
"Walking the Via Francegena is more than a journey, it's a long reflective ramble through the quiet Italian countryside. On the Orvieto to Rome stage, I walked alone (self-guided) and saw maybe a dozen other walkers, and a few groups of mountain bikers. So it's very quiet and if you are a spiritual or reflective person, I recommend this trip. I passed through sublime peaceful woodlands and forests, skirted fields and olive groves, and each night stayed in traditional old Italian towns. Hardly a tourist to be seen, what bliss! Along the way, I saw numerous old churches and some Roman roads and buildings. Also, there were information boards about the Via Francegena and the important role it played throughout the centuries socially and economically. The trail is quiet well marked, and UTracks' notes and phone ap are excellent. UTracks accommodation was really good and most nights I stayed in an atmospheric hotel or Agritourismo in great locations. I had two full days of rain but this trip is so interesting it wasn't a problem. If you want to see the real Italy away from the tourist hordes, and walk through delightful vistas all day, this is the trip for you. UTracks makes it very easy, this was my fourth walking trip with them."

"An amazing experience and a great taste of Italy - its friendly people, the beautiful buildings, the food, peaceful countryside, especially the hazelnut groves. We met some fascinating people on the way and enjoyed visiting the Colosseum and Vatican City once we arrived in Rome. A holiday we'll never forget."
Via Francigena: Southern Tuscany from Siena Tour Reviews
"We walked through a delightful region of Italy and discover some beautiful villages and people and their spiritual history.This 6-day walk along the Via Francegena ("The Way of the French") actually leaves from Buonoconvento and concludes near the edge of Umbria in a small Hamlet called Sedento. Along the way, we passed through tranquil countryside along country paths and quiet roads and met some beautiful people. Calling into churches and priories along the way gave a sense into their ancient faith and spirituality. We had the chance to taste gorgeous local food and wine. Our hosts at Radicofani in particular gave us sumptuous food and wine. Highlights for us were the towns of Buonoconvento, Montacino, Castel d'Abbiza and Radicofani. The Priory at l Castel was also wonderful. Overall, we had a wonderful walk: fascinating, leisurely and immersed with history and beautiful people. Who could want more?"

"This is a fabulous and sometimes challenging walk through the stunning Val d'Orcia, stopping each night at equally stunning hilltop towns. The quality of the accommodation and the meals provided was excellent. Thanks UTracks!"

Food Lover's Via Francigena Tour Review
"The trip "Food Lover's Francigena Way" brought all the right ingredients together for a tasty trek through Italy. For us, we could not have chosen a better way to experience Italy than to drink in its ancient history by rambling through the picturesque countryside of olive groves & grapevines; & then in turn, taste their aromas in the food & wine of its regions. Our trip leader, Salvatore, was exceptional as our guide & companion. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip itinerary & would highly recommend this tour to anyone who really wants a quality travel adventure in Italy."

Via Francigena: From the Great St Bernard Pass Tour Review
"A fantastic walk with great scenery from mountains to meadows. The distance walked each day are well judged, accommodation comfortable, and some great food can be found along the way. The path varies from roads to scrambles, which helps keep things interesting! Spring is an ideal time to do this trip see the alpine flowers and keep waking temperatures comfortable."

The Full Via Francigena Tour Review
"Whilst there were only a few pilgrims, those I met were very supportive & accommodating, met some terrific people. The variety of accommodation was generally excellent. The track itself presented great variety of terrain & villages along the way which I found far more interesting than the Spanish Camino, especially Toscana which was absolutely spectacular."
