SloWays and the European Association of Vie Francigene (EAVF) are walking together in the heart of Tuscany.

From the 13th to the 19th May 2018, a group travel proposal is planned along the Via Francigena, organised in collaboration with the EAVF and their tour operator expert partner, SloWays. San Miniato, Gambassi Terme, San Gimigano and Siena: this slow-pace week in Tuscany will lead to the discovery of the villages and unique landscapes of the Via Francigena. The group will be travelling with the EAVF and Roberta Ferraris, author of guides on the Via Francigena, designer, cook, and passionate walker.

The route: we will start in San Miniato, one of the hidden gems of the Via Francigena, and continue along a route of extraordinary beauty: from the thousand year old Parish Church of Chianni, where Sigeric slept, to the crenelated towers of the Monteriggioni Castle, continuing to Siena and its districts. From here we will travel the legendary white roads of the Sienese, from dreamy landscapes to fortified villages where time appears to have stopped, until arriving in Buonconvento, enjoying the journey as it progresses.
