Via Francigena in the South

Leg 01 - From Roma to Castel Gandolfo

The rural landscape is the main attraction of this short and easy leg which creates some problem of orientation in the central part.

Leg 06 - From Fossanova abbey to Terracina

We walk towards Terracina along a section which doesn’t offer anything of particular interest. We find ourselves in an area dedicated to intensive agriculture, only the Ausoni Mountains provide variety geometrically characterised by the different crops.

A hilly leg which accompanies us first of all along a fine section of  Appia Antica, with some examples of ancient basalt, continuing towards the plain of Fondi, through the Aurunci mountains.

Leg 08 - From Fondi to Formia

A leg rich in charm in which the Via Appia plays a leading role, initially positive and then negative: in the first section we experience the excitement of travelling along an extraordinary section of the Appia Antica, which has kept most of its original appearance.

Leg 09 - From Formia to Sessa Aurunca

We travel along the last kilometres of Lazio, to cross the border into the Campania section of the  Via Francigena nel Sud. Most of the itinerary consists of asphalted roads which make the route less attractive than the previous legs.
