Walking the Way of Saint Benedict


from £1,290 pp

(ex international flights)


12 days

The Way of Saint Benedict is one of the greatest hikes in Italy, and there definitely is a certain magic that connects people to the places along this route. You don't have to be religious to appreciate the spirituality, culture and beauty of the hike. You will travel through small villages, enjoying the stunning scenery and enchanting hospitality of the locals all the way. The original route is 300 km from Umbria to Lazio and takes about 16 days, however the beauty of tailor-made travel is that you can walk for as little or as much as you like. Here, we are proposing a 12 day journey from Rieti to Montecassino in Lazio region, but we can plan any section that you like the look of so simply let us know when you enquire. This tour is self-guided. We provide you with a written guide to St Benedict's way which includes maps and all the useful info, and we also provide details of 'amici del cammino' - locals along the way who help travellers. You also don't need to worry about your packing skills... We include a baggage transfer service so that you only need to carry a day pack whilst hiking. Buon viaggio!

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
