Via Romea Germanica

Enigmatic and Medieval

The Via Romea Germanica, named after the 'Germanic' countries of Northern Europe, was once the preferred path to reach Rome - an alternative to best known Via Francigena, with which shares the last section into Rome. 


Our trips follow the best section of the route, taking you from the vibrant university city of Forlì to the heart of Rome through some of Italy's most picturesque and enigmatic places.

From the enchanted forests of Casentino to an ancient city suspended on a rocky cliff; from the rugged beauty of the Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines to the serene beauty of Cortona, to end with the well preserved Roman roads of Latium.
