The final stage of the Via Francigena takes you from the hilltop town of Montefiascone to Rome, the eternal city. During your journey along this ancient pilgrimage route, you will follow trails through the classic Italian landscapes of Lazio.
Walk through rural and pristine areas of Italy that many tourists do not visit and become immersed in the true culture of these stunning regions passing many hill-top villages, Etruscan and Roman remains, papal palaces and thermal pools. Begin in Montefiascone, a town from which there are great views over Lago di Bolsena which was formed in the crater of an ancient volcano. As you continue on your intriguing journey you will encounter the Bagnaccio thermal pools in which you can take a break and enjoy a soak in the milky green and steaming waters. Another highlight is Viterbo, which despite suffering heavy bombing in WWII is the best preserved medieval town in the Lazio region.
Spend a night in Sutri and wander through its enchanting old quarter discovering the Roman amphitheater and the place of worship, the Mithraeum. Pass rivers, streams, and waterfalls and walk through the stunning and serene green valley of Sorbo where you will see grazing wild horses. On this tour, you will walk directly into Rome through the parks of Insugherata and Mt Mario.
