ROUTE

PROGRAMM

The itinerary for the day will start with one of the most beautiful natural sites in the Terni area, the Marmore Waterfall, the tallest in Europe with a total height of 165 metres. The falls can be visited by hiking on marvellous trails and stopping to visit the botanical gardens. We will then go to Piediluco, a picturesque fishing village on the banks of Lake Piediluco. The church of San Francesco is located in the town and commemorates the saint’s visit in 1217. Dinner at a restaurant overlooking the lake and overnight stay. Route: approximately 10 km.

After a large breakfast overlooking the lake, we will set out for our first leg of the journey to arrive in Arrone. On this leg, the beautiful natural surroundings will evoke the memory of St Francis. We will start from the stunning landscape of Lake Piediluco and walk along the banks of the River Velino, whose waters create the spectacular Marmore Waterfall, and then we will continue along the cool currents of the River Nera. This is a delightful and undemanding leg of approximately 13 km.

We will set out for Ceselli. This is a relaxing stretch that will help loosen our muscles and prepare us for the climb to Spoleto. We will walk on level ground in the river valley of the Nera, whose meanders resemble a dragon’s tail according to local lore. These ancient thoroughfares, guarded by hilltop castles, boast beautiful natural surroundings. Approximately 15 km.

From the narrow green valley of the River Nera we will head into the wide and sunny Spoleto Valley to reach Spoleto, where St Francis’s autograph letter has been preserved. We will climb gradually for about 8 km and several stretches are quite steep. Because of the long ascent, this leg is one of the most demanding of the southern walk. Our arrival at the sacred woods of Monteluco, the location of the Franciscan hermitage, will give us a preview of the thrill of reaching Assisi. Approximately 17 km.

This is leg is simple at the beginning, but from Eggi we will start to climb, with several steep stretches. We will walk through the Spoleto countryside, dominated by expanses of olive groves that cover all the hills, and this will take us to Poreta. Approximately 14.5 km.

From Poreta we will set out for Trevi. The walk extends along the hillsides overlooking the Spoleto Valley, going through olive groves protected by massive walls built without mortar. This leg is average in length, but the numerous ascents and descents can slow us down. In summer, the sun can be brutal, so come prepared. Approximately 12 km.

From Trevi to Foligno. We will continue through terraced olive groves, but then we will gradually head down to the valley. Along the way there are numerous small shrines at the crossroads, almost as if to show us the way. The leg is simple, but on the last stretch before Foligno we will be walking on a busy road. 13 km. Assisi is ever closer.
