Following the pilgrimage route through the rolling Tuscan landscape

Via Francigena: San Miniato to San Quirico (Stage 6)

Explore the central belt of iconic Tuscan landscapes and a distinctive trio of medieval towns; Siena, San Gimignano, and Monteriggioni. This stage of the Via Francigena takes you from the charming village of San Miniato to San Quirico situated on the northern edge of the Valley d’Orcia.

This journey encompasses all the highlights of central Tuscany and offers fascinating insights into the many towns and villages that you pass through with their wealth of history, culture, art, and architecture.

Beginning in the medieval village of San Miniato you walk through Chianti vineyards and then make your way to Gambassi, known for its production of glass and to San Gimignano, the “Manhattan of Tuscany”. The famed towers were built in the 12th century. San Gimignano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Monteriggioni is your next destination, enclosed by medieval walls which are still intact. Siena is unquestionably one of the highlights of this stage of the Via Francigena, with its medieval buildings and the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo. Twice a year around the piazza the famous Palio horse race is run with the same pomp and ceremony as in medieval times. Your walking tour finishes in the quintessentially Tuscan hill-top town of San Quirico d’Orcia.
