Holiday Information

Join us on this guided cycling holiday in Italy where we'll be tracing the steps of the ViaFrancigena, an ancient route packed full of historical gems and idyllic Italian countryside. Once the favoured route for merchants, armies and pilgrims travelling from Canterbury to Rome (and all the way through to Jerusalem), our version of the Via Francigena picks up the trail in Tuscany and offers an inspiring journey through the heart of Italy, right up to the mighty St Peter’s Square in Rome.
Starting just outside of the enthralling San Gimignano, you’ll have the chance to explore this unique UNESCO treasure and admire its many medieval towers. Here you’ll get a great introduction to Tuscan way of life, a landscape famed for its idyllic cypress lined horizons, endless fields of golden corn and medieval hilltop towns. We’ll then head south following the Via Francigena on a range on quiet country lanes, ancient Roman roads, over rolling hills, through woodland and passing through ancient towns. This route joins up some of the major Tuscan highlights, including Siena, Montiriggioni and San Quirico.
Our journey has two distinct halves and as we leave Tuscany and enter Lazio, the landscape changes as well as the feel of the towns, a change which only adds to the sense of journey. Heading ever south, we’ll cycle through varying scenery and changing terrain, eventually pedallin’ into the outskirts of Rome where our own pilgrimage comes to a dramatic end, riding into St. Peter's Square. Along the way we’ll stay in a range of good quality local hotels and agriturismi, which enable you to experience true Italian hospitality and of course indulge in some delicious local cuisine.
We also have a mountain biking version of this trip available which follows alternative, off road routes along the Via Francigena.
