The Via Francigena: San Miniato to Buonconvento tour starts and ends in Tuscany. The Via Francigena: San Miniato to Buonconvento is an Explorer tour that takes 9 days taking you through Tuscany, Italy and other destinations in Italy.

Via Francigena, the ancient pilgrimage trail from Canterbury to Rome, is getting increasingly popular for a reason. We offer you a walk that combines the famous towns and villages such as Siena and San Gimignano with beautiful hamlets such as San Miniato, allowing you to discover the very best of the Tuscan Via Francigena in a single trip
Your travel starts from San Miniato, the jewel of Via Francigena. Depending on the time of your arrival you have the rest of the day for exploring the cultural sites of the city such as the Seminary, from which the main square takes its name. Accommodation: Hotel San Miniato
Starting your walk, a paved road brings you to a spectacular route crossing the countryside of the Val d’Elsa. On the route you pass through two “Submansiones”: Pieve di Coiano and Pieve a Chianni, arriving at your place for overnight. Dinner is included at the accommodation tonight. Accommodation: Agriturismo Tenuta Sant'Ilario Walking for the day: 24 km, 7 hrs, ↑780m ↓650m
Today you enjoy the wonderful surroundings of the Via Francigena. On the way to the authentic villages of Collemuccioli and Pieve di Cellole, you can stop for a visit at the Sanctuary in Pancole. If you arrive early, take some time to visit the famous town of San Gimignano and enjoy its charming medieval atmosphere. Dinner is on your own in one of the many restaurants in town. Accommodation: Hotel La Cisterna Walking for the day: 18 km, 6 hrs, ↑595m ↓540m
Today you start your walk going up and down the Tuscan hills through vineyards, olive groves, fields and woods, reaching your accommodation in Gracciano. Along the way, you can make a detour to discover the fascinating Abbey of Santa Maria a Coneo of the XI century. Accommodation: Hotel Il Pietreto Walking for the day: 21 km, 6 hrs, ↑209m ↓204m
From Gracciano, cross Pieve a Elsa and meet the ancient Etruscan Thermae (hot pool) of Caldane. After reaching Strove and its beautiful Romanesque Church, you continue walking along the particular complex of Abbadia a Isola until you reach the medieval town of Monteriggioni, surrounded by its peculiar crown of towers. Accommodation: Hotel Borgo Gallinano Walking for the day: 13 km, 4 hrs, ↑132m ↓57m
Leaving Monteriggioni, you walk on dirt roads along the Montagnola Senese, the main hilly area in the district. You pass the ancient medieval suburb of Cerbaia that appears currently abandoned. Across the wood you reach the Castle of “Chiocciola” and go up to Poggio di Riciano and descend along the old river of the Pian del Lago (or skip Poggio di Riciano to arrive directly from Chiocciola to Pian del Lago). At the end of the Renai forest, you enter the beautiful town of Siena for its ancient pilgrim’s access of Porta Camollia. Dinner is on your own in one of the many restaurants in town. Accommodation: Hotel Chiusarelli Walking for the day: 20 km, 6 hrs, ↑224m ↓245m
After saying goodbye to Siena, resting on the hills on the horizon, you travel along the typical dirt roads of Siena as far as the fortified village of Lucignano, with its fine Church. At the gates of Monteroni d’Arbia you will be able to admire the impressive Grancia di Cuna, a fortified farm which held the reserves of wheat for the republic of Siena. Accommodation: Hotel Borgo Antico Walking for the day: 21 km, 6 hrs, ↑307m ↓467m
From Lucignano you continue your journey through the Valle dell’Ombrone to Buonconvento. Once you cross the gate of the walls, entering the fine old town centre of the village, you will discover why its name means “happy fortunate place”: you walk through the picturesque streets, where life is lived quietly following the slow rhythms of a provincial village, and if you love art, you will be able to admire the works of some of the most famous Sienese painters in the Museum of Sacred Art of the Val d’Arbia. Accommodation: Hotel Ghibellino Walking for the day: 14 km, 5 hrs, ↑259m ↓293m
Departure on your own or extension upon request.
