“A moderate to challenging walk through the spectacular Tuscan countryside from hilltop medieval walled city to hilltop walled city on the Via Francigena. We’d read on various blogs that the trail is not as well waymarked as the camino to Santiago de Compostela so we were thrilled to find that the trail is actually well waymarked (however this section is all I’ve had experience with). CW provided useful walking notes and maps. Having the CW contact phone number with us gave us a lot of confidence too. Camino Ways booked very good hotels for us that were easy to find from the camino. We booked our own transportation. My friends and I flew into Pisa for a little sightseeing before taking the train to begin the camino from Lucca and took the train from Siena to Rome for some quick sightseeing before flying home. A truly memorable experience. Thank you Camino Ways for the excellent support!” 5 May 2018

"Simple booking process, queries answered promptly by helpful staff. Walking notes excellent and easy to follow, the given walking distances are rather conservative !!! The scenery and trail all as expected, good quality hotels and dinner. Recommended." For more information about this Via Francigena tour: Via Francigena from Lucca.

"We have travelled with CaminoWays before on the Camino in 2013. I have always found them very helpful in arranging a bespoke itinerary. The luggage transfer service on both trips has been flawless. Our accommodation has always been clean and our hosts friendly and welcoming. We didn't use the walking notes in Spain as the Camino is very well signposted but the walking notes for the Francigena Way were detailed accurate and extremely useful. All of our needs have been met and I will definitely travel with CaminoWays.com again. Thanks for two great trips!"

This section of the Via Francigena in Tuscany, from Lucca to Siena, is one of the most popular and spectacular stretches of the Via Francigena, the Camino to Rome. The trail starts in the walled city of Lucca with its amazing Renaissance wall and citadel, and finishes in the UNESCO World Heritage historic centre of Siena.

You will walk in the heart of Tuscany, across beautiful rolling hills and woodland, stopping in gorgeous villages along the way where you will enjoy a well-deserved rest. There are many wonderful sights on this section of the Via Francigena including the tiny walled hilltop town of Monteriggioni and two impressive UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the breathtaking town of San Gimignano with its medieval towers and magnificent Siena, a historical, artistic, cultural and gastronomic gem.

If you travel in July or August, you might be able to witness one of Italy’s most traditional horse races: the Palio di Siena. If you travel in Autumn, this part of Tuscany is world-famous for its white truffles so foodies are in for a treat! All along the way you will taste delicious Italian cuisine. With many 5 star reviews this is a fantastic route for anyone interested in a walking holiday in Italy.
