Walking in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi

2nd March 2011 Print

Walking holiday specialist Walks Worldwide has an 8-day trip to Italy entitled ‘In the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi’.

The trip is both a historic pilgrimage as well as a fascinating and scenic walk, in the countryside of hidden Tuscany and Umbria, discovering hermitages and chapels, mediaeval towns and ancient forests where the philosophy of the gentle saint of Assisi towards nature is maintained.

From La Verna, where St. Francis received ‘the stigmata’, you retrace paths of pilgrimage to Assisi where the saint was born. The self-guided walking holiday departs on Fridays and Saturdays in April and costs from £695 pp which includes 7-nights’ B&B in hotels (plus 3 dinners), route notes, map and luggage transfers.

Walks Worldwide can book flights on request.
