Stage 10 - from Foligno to Trevi

From Foligno to Trevi, a gradual rise upwards from the valley.

From the plains of Foligno, a gradual step by step ascent to the top of Trevi. A pleasant 13 km walk over the terraced land that is home to Umbria’s renowned olive groves. An ascent for fit walkers.

Leave Foligno by the Porta Romana and take the paved road towards the Castello di Sant’Eraclio along the ancient Via Flaminia. Stock up on water in town at the grand Cinquecento fountain. The walk proceeds over a dirt road as the slope gradually becomes steeper, but without posing any sort of difficulty. Continue through olive groves and then follow the paved road that takes you through the small towns of Matigge and Santa Maria in Valle. Along the way, you’ll find that the senior citizens seated at the outdoor tables of the coffee bars become a great way to get to know the locals and their culture, as well as being a good excuse to take a break from walking, get a snack and replenish your water bottle. From the small church of Santa Maria in Valle, take the easy dirt road that also offers wonderful views of the Umbrian Valley. Leave the trail to walk through olive groves and face the ascent that finally leads to the centre of Trevi. It is the day’s final ascent, so take it easy, fall into the slow rhythm of the countryside itself. At the top you’ll find Trevi with all its monasteries and monuments, and in the evening you can reward yourself with tasty dishes seasoned with the DOP olive oil this town is so celebrated for.
What you should know before departure
Sources
There are water sources fountains in Foligno, Sant’Eraclio, Matigge, Collecchio and Trevi.
Remember to fill your water bottle with at least 1.5 litres of water in the summer.
Intermediate stages
There are resting areas where you can stop and take a regenerative break or find accommodation and shorten this leg of the journey.
Suggestions
An exposed trail, so remember to wear a hat, especially in summer. Trevi is steeped in culture just waiting to be explored, so get to town early to enjoy it. Do stop in at the museum of olives and oil, which is also home to a precious art collection.
We recommend that you have the maps of the trail with you. Simplified maps can be downloaded by clicking on the online map. Remember to always have a small supply of food with you (fruit, dried fruit, chocolate, energy bars, something energy-giving in general).
