In medieval times the Via Francigena was an important pilgrimage route for those wishing to visit the Holy See and the tombs of the apostles Peter and Paul in Rome. Today the route follows the ancient trail from Canterbury in England to Italy's capital. This last section, from Orvieto to the Eternal City, takes you through the hills of Umbria, past hill top towns, ancient Etruscan villages and historical sites, all the while sampling delicious regional culinary specialities.
