The Chianti Romea Road

A spiritual walk towards Chianti's hills

The Chianti Romea Road

The Via Romea which comes from Florence to Siena to reconnect with the Via Francigena crosses the territory of Chianti and its rolling hills. Rediscovered a few years ago is now one of the busiest roads by pilgrims in search of spirituality and tourists seeking to enjoy this beautiful area.

Starting from Florence and exiting from Porta Romana you get to the Certosa di Galluzzo, here it begins the real journey of the Via Romea, a journey in which they meet ancient hospitals and shelters for pilgrims. From Val di Pesa along ancient paths through the woods and across the famous vineyards of Chianti you come to the Hotel il Colombaio di Castellina in Chianti. The old transhumance home frequently housed the pilgrims passing on the Via Romea, in effect even if the Via Romea is rather complicated and reserved for walkers enough experts will repay your efforts with unforgettable views.
