Northern Way stages walking along the St Francis' Way Assisi Umbria italy

Northern Way

Just under 200 km. From La Verna to Assisi.
All the stages of the journey indicated can be shortened or you can also stop-off somewhere for a day.
The most important thing is to leave all the hustle and bustle at home.

The point of departure for this itinerary is the Sanctuary of La Verna in Tuscany, one of the places that St Francis of Assisi loved the most. 
From the National Park of the Casentinesi Forests you reach the gentler hills of the upper Tiber Valley in Umbria, touching the towns of Citerna, Città di Castello and Pietralunga. You will reach Gubbio, which is rich in natural beauty and artistic treasures and is the place of St Francis' first pilgrimage. 
With uphill and downhill climbs, you will cross the green territory of Valfabbrica until you reach the Basilica of St Francis of Assisi, which is the most famous place in the world representing the history and life of the Patron Saint of Italy.  
You can go on interesting detours around Perugia, the regional capital, in which there is a wealth of exceptional monuments.
