Along the Via Francigena: autonomous walking and bike itinerary
The Via Francigena, was the main road axis connecting the centre-nord Europe to Rome. One of the most beautiful route along the Via Francigena is the one that connects San Gimignano to Monteriggioni (30 KM), both from an environmental and historical-cultural point of view.
Leave San Gimignano direction Santa Lucia district, after going up and down, reach Molino d'Aiano, a resort along the track of Sigerico. Go on towards Badia a Coneo, Gracciano, and then to Strove, including a pretty Romanesque Pieve. Pass the wonderful architectural structure of Abbadia in Isola before reaching Monteriggioni, where there is an unmistakable tower crest. This leg of Via Francigena can be discovered on foot or even by bike.
