LE PUY CAMINO
It takes a month to complete the full route from Le Puy en Velay to St Jean Pied de Port, where pilgrims can join the Camino Francés and continue on to Santiago de Compostela (only another 700kms to go!) but you can walk a section in France over a few days. We highly recommend the section from Le Puy en Velay to Conques, taking in the rugged landscapes of the Aubrac Plateau and the picturesque vilalges along the Lot Valley before reaching magical Conques.

PILGRIM IN TUSCANY
Walking from the hilltop town of San Miniato to stunning Siena you will be following in the footsteps of medieval pilgrims who took the Via Francigena trail on their way to Rome. This epic route starts in Canterbury and crosses most of Europe but if you only have one week, we recommend this easy stretch across Tuscany, one of the most beautiful and historic areas of the full trail. Along the way, you will admire the ancient towers of San Gimignano and the atmospheric walled village of Monteriggioni; as well as the postcard views of the Tuscan rolling countryside.
