Lucca to Siena: A Pilgrim's Way
May 22-28, 2016 | September 18-24, 2016
Pack your bags and prepare to travel because you don’t want to miss this wonderful trip through Italy! We’ll begin our walk in Lucca to bring out the distinct Tuscan feel of Italy. For more than 1,000 years, pilgrims have walked the Via Francigena, once the major pilgrimage route from Northern Europe to the Holy See at Rome. In 990AD, Sigeric the Serious, Archbishop of Canterbury in England, walked to Rome and wrote an account of the Way. We follow Sigeric's route in Italy between the cities of Lucca and Siena. Taste the wine of Italian vineyards, see the countryside and farmlands, and visit historical monasteries and abbeys.
