Discover historic walks and saints of Italy's finest region on this pilgrimage led by the Reverend Canon Michael Rawson.
Experience the romance, architecture, culture of food and wine and indulge and delight the senses. Sun-drenched hilltop towns and villages from the Apennine Mountains to its characterful coastline. Nestled in the central Tuscan hills, are frescoed churches well worth exploring, and the views from medieval towers and fortresses are not to be missed. The ancient cities of Siena, Pisa and Lucca are all within reach of the Art Nouveau splendour of your resort of Montecatini, where you stay for seven nights.
Florence, the region’s capital, is for many the jewel in Tuscany’s crown. Home to several globally important art collections, the city is often held to be the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Among its eye-opening architecture and impressive squares, Florence boasts unmissable landmarks such as its spectacular Duomo and the medieval Ponte Vecchio.
On two days we walk parts of the Way of St. James or Via Francigena where you will enjoy views of rolling hills, vineyards and Roman architecture that dot the trails. This path connects the five cathedrals of Florence, Prato, Pistoia, Pescia and Lucca, passing through Montecatini Terme.
We have included a host of extras, meals in local restaurants, included drinks all entrances and guided tours with seven nights in a four-star hotel with friendly family owners.
We take the opportunity to worship in some very special locations throughout the eight days which allow us to express thanks for the beautiful region we are blessed to take pleasure in. We hope that you can join us so we can enjoy, worship and give thanks together on this very special experience.
