Itinerary

Day 1: Viterbo

Viterbo is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Central Italy and its center is the largest medieval example in Europe. Known for being the City of the Popes, its main attraction is obviously the Papal Palace (Palazzo dei Papi) where the first papal conclave took place.

Also the Cathedral of St. Lorenzo, built on a pagan temple of Hercules, stands out for its importance. However, this is not the oldest church in Viterbo, which is instead the church of Santa Maria Nuova (1080).

Among the typical dishes of Tuscia (ancient name of the Etruscan territory) we can find the acquacotta and many other typical dishes that will leave you a delicious memory of this city.

Day 2: Viterbo- Vetralla (18 km)

Today’s route will take you to Vetralla, a unique medieval-style village in the middle of nature, near the park of Lake Vico and Mount Fogliano.

Symbol of Vetralla are its public thermal baths, already famous in the ancient times. In the historic center, there are important buildings such as the neoclassical Duomo, the church of San Francesco and the Palazzo Comunale of Vetralla.

You cannot miss two typical dishes of the area, pappardelle with bolognese sauce and fettuccine with porcini mushroom sauce or an aperitif based on the local rustic bread with local oil. Simple but delicious!

Day 3: Vetralla- Sutri (24 km)

Leaving Vetralla behind, you will pass through a magical natural environment defined by its hazelnut and oak forests.

Today you will discover one of the most emblematic places for its history and charm, the fortified medieval town of Sutri. According to the legend, it was founded by Saturn himself, father of all the Gods.

Sutri remained almost unchanged in time and for this reason it has deserved the TCI (Italian Touring Club) Orange Flag Award that certifies the excellence of the small villages in the interior.

Among the attractions of this area you will be able to visit the Roman amphitheater excavated in the tufo and the small church of the Madonna del Parto whose frescoes represent the Virgin and the Saints.

Also worth a visit is Charlemagne Castle where, according to the legend, the king stayed in 800 during his journey to Rome for the coronation. If you still have time there is also a roman necropolis with more than 64 tombs to see.

Day 4: Sutri- Campagnano (27 km)

Your day of immersion in the nature begins by walking in the Lazio countryside until you will reach a lake full of water lilies, near the village of Monterosi.
Then your route will take you to the waterfalls of Monte Gelato where you can take a bath and rest before returning to the path.

Through a panoramic route you will enter the Veio natural park and following a walk near the river you will arrive at the village of Campagnano which is situated on the top of a hill.

Day 5: Campagnano - Isola Farnese (22 km)

Leaving Campagnano behind you will follow your panoramic route in the Veio natural park, where you will be able to see the Madonna del Sorbo Sanctuary.

Today is the day! The walk will take you to your final destination, St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican.
You will now be able to immortalize your arrival with a spectacular photo in front of the most famous Basilica in the world. Before your arrival, you will have to pass through the suburbs and the traffic of this great metropolis could collide with the tranquility of these last days walking in nature.

Nevertheless, your way through the park of Monte Mario will allow you an incredible view over the city of Rome that you will never forget!

What better way to celebrate your achievement than a plate of local food and wine in the center of Rome?

Day 6: Isola Farnese- Roma (19 km)

Today is the day! The walk will take you to your final destination, St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican.

You will now be able to immortalize your arrival with a spectacular photo in front of the most famous Basilica in the world. Before your arrival, you will have to pass through the suburbs and the traffic of this great metropolis could collide with the tranquility of these last days walking in nature.

Nevertheless, your way through the park of Monte Mario will allow you an incredible view over the city of Rome that you will never forget!

Day 7: Rome

Your walk ended up here but we advise you to stay a little more than a day to live the charm of this beautiful city, and to taste some of its richest dishes.

The Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Navona square and Spain Square as well as the Trastevere district are some of the wonders that you will be able to visit.

The most known is that throwing a coin in the fountain will guarantee your return to Rome. Another custom is related to those girls who had to say goodbye to their boyfriends, who were leaving. The idea was to make the boyfriend drink a glass of water from the fountain, and they break it, so he would come back.

Rome, in addition to its monuments, art and history is undoubtedly a place of great importance for its eno-gastronomy. Don’t miss it!
