i närheten av San Gimignano, Toscana (Italia)
We arrived the day before from Firenze to San Gimignano by bus, which took us around two hours. As trains were on strike, we took a bus from Autostazione Firenze (close to Firenze SMN train station) to Poggibonsi Station. And then a bus from Poggibonsi Station to San Gimignano.
We stayed at Hotel Antiquo Pozzo, which is located in a charming historic house. Bus stop Porta San Matteo is very close to the hotel.
The walk to Colle di Val d' Elsa offers wonderful views on San Gimignano and typical Tuscan country side. Walk is easy, as it is mainly on "strade bianche" with very light slopes.
In Colle Val d'Elsa, we stayed at Hotel Palazzo San Lorenzo which is a comfortable hotel with a nice breakfast. This hotel is located at the entrance of the old city, whose old streets and palaces are very charming. We had dinner at l'Oste di Borgo: good food, nice owners and music (this is a small place, so better call to book a table).
The project: walk from San Miniato to Roma following via Francigena. We are targeting stages of 15 kilometers or less (up to 20 kilometers maximum) / 400 meters uphill maximum. We would like to sleep in decent hotels/B&B, enjoy good food and wine! A tip that changed our life after we discovered it: you can have your luggage carried from one hotel to the next by Bags Free (a small and reliable company we highly recommend) all along Via Francigena. We plan to divide this trip in walks of 3-4 stages. We will publish our trip on Wikiloc, follow us!
