The section from San Quirico d'Orcia to Radicofani is a very challenging one.
A visit to the historic center of Castiglione d'Orcia, with the tower of the Fort of Tentennano, is worth a detour.
The climb to Radicofani is very tough, but it is repayed by the beautiful panorama you enjoy along the way.
Now you can follow their footsteps by taking our 3,300km long version of the route: Euro Velo 5 – Via Romea (Francigena).
Beginning at Sigeric’s original starting point - the glorious Canterbury Cathedral in southern England - the route passes to the port of Dover where you will need to catch a ferry to continue the journey.
Whether you want a short break or a long adventure, Euro Velo 5 - Via Romea (Francigena) offers something for everyone.
