Come walk with us on an ancient Roman path!


In the Middle Ages, Via Francigena was the major pilgrimage route running from France to Rome and Apulia. The Via Francigena was not a single main road like a classical stone block Roman road but comprised several possible routes that developed over the centuries as trade and pilgrimage changed. 

Today some pilgrims travel on foot, on horseback, or by bicycle on the Via Francigena. We will walk from Lago di Albano to Lago di Nemi, for a total distance of 7km passing through the “Parco Regionale dei Castelli Romani”.  We will then have lunch in a local restaurant and free time in Nemi old town. Finally, we will walk down to the lake and have some free time. Around 4 pm, we will take a private bus to go back to Rome. 


Meeting at Termini Station at 8.20 am, private coach bus to Albano Lake (ca. 50 minutes)  

We will start to walk from Via Francigena as soon as we get to the starting point.  

After a lunch break (packed lunch will be provided), we will walk to the gorgeous village of Nemi and have some free time there. 

We will take our private bus to be back in Rome around 6.30 pm.
