The rural route takes you through villages, vineyards, and some of the most scenic countryside in Tuscany.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at the railway station in Siena to start the tour. Hop in an air-conditioned van to the hike to the starting point. The Via Francigena is an ancient pilgrimage route, first mentioned in records in the 8th century, that stretches from Canterbury, England all the way to the Vatican in Rome, going through France and Switzerland along the way. 

While its popularity decreased with the rise of automobiles, the Via Francigena is regaining popularity as there are now regular hikers and pilgrims on the trail. Stroll along the path and notice the beauty around you: the rolling hills blanketed in olive groves and the occasional vineyard. Pass through ancient villages that look the same as they did centuries ago when pilgrims would stride past. 

After your hike, arrive at the striking village of Monteriggioni, a tiny walled town plopped atop of a medium-sized hill. Take part in a wine tasting here at a local wine shop and taste two different local varieties. After, feel free to explore the village at your leisure, popping into small shops, sitting down for lunch or investigating the medieval walls of the village. Your guide gives you a map that shows how to get to the railway station and, when you like, you can get the train back to Siena for the comfortable and scenic ride.

A nice walk along a well marked and famous hiking path. Montereggio is a picturesque medieval village with its place in tuscan history. Sampled some great local wine and olive oil before finding a place for a traditional lunch.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Keko, stopped at many points along the way to talk about the history of the path. Finishing with a wine tasting at Monteriggioni was an added plus. It is a long walk, so travel light, wear a good pair of shoes and bring liquids. There is a spot to fill your water bottles along the way. ENJOY!

This tour was really great, the guide was very friendly and enjoyable to walk with. The wine tasting was equally friendly, interesting and tasty. Also seemed quite generous compared to what I've heard from reviews of other tastings. Lovely village to look around too.

this is a great 1/2 day to spend in the Tuscan countryside from Siena! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and fun to walk with. Should offer more of these hikes! One point: our guide did not give us a map/directions to the train station which meant we practiced our Italian trying to find it. She did give us oral directions but it is not straightforward to get to the train station.
