Via di Francesco - St Francis' Way - Southern Way from Roma to Assisi

Stage 13 - from Trevi to Foligno

From Poreta to Trevi, amidst ancient hermitages and olive trees, you will reach one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.

You walk along the terraces of olive trees, and step by step, you descend to the valley. The distance is approximately 13 km and features numerous votive shrines at the crossroads, which seem to guide pilgrims towards Assisi.

Degree of difficulty
This leg of the journey is simple: only during the last stretch before Foligno you walk along a busy road with traffic, where you need to be careful. The great day on which you will reach Assisi is getting closer. Leaving the old town centre of Trevi and the Convent of San Martino behind you, you set off downhill along a trail that leads to the town of Collecchio. Continuing on along the terraces of olive trees, step by step you descend to the valley. The route in the countryside alternates tarmac road and dirt road, but it is always in the sun (so remember your sun hat and a supply of water).
You continue on, slightly downhill, passing several beautiful Marian aedicule, a distinctive element of the Umbrian countryside. In the locality of San Clemente, you come across a rural parish church, standing on a hillside covered with olive trees. This pleasant place invites you to stop and rest. Soon you will reach Porta Romana and the old town centre of Foligno. Walking along the elegant Corso Cavour you reach the famous square in which the Cathedral of San Feliciano stands and where a plaque reminds you that St Frances, still a merchant at the time, sold his father's fabrics in this place, to renovate the church of San Damiano.
What you should know before departure
There are water fountains in Trevi, Collecchio, Matigge, Sant'Eraclio, Foligno. Remember to fill your water bottle with at least 1.5 litres of water in the summer.
Intermediate legs 
There are resting areas where you can stop and take a regenerative break or find accommodation and shorten this leg of the journey.
This stretch is in the open air, so always remember your hat in the summertime. Foligno has a rich cultural heritage to be discovered, so we suggest you get to the town early if you want to visit it. 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).
