The Via Francigena

The Via Francigena dates back to the Middle Ages and was the road travelled by pilgrims going to Rome.

Nowadays it continues to be a pilgrim route, like the route to Santiago de Compostela, but it also represents a different way of travelling through and discovering Tuscany. The road presents a journey through time, slow and in contact with nature.

Borgo Gallinaio is situated about 400 meters (1300 ft) from the start of Monteriggioni-Siena route, while the section from Monteriggioni to San Gimignano is a little over 1 km (0.6 mi) away.

The path is well maintained and signposted and we can help to organise the transportation of your luggage.

In addition to serving dinner and breakfast, we can provide a packed lunch which will help you to resume your journey.

Finally, the laundry is available for walkers who need to wash their clothes and also a secure space is available for storing bikes.

Have a good trip!
