HI!
Has anyone walked from Arles up through Torin and then to Rome? I found a few references to this way, but not many. Has anyone done this route and if so what resources were you able to find?

Thanks

Hello @Samos
Yes, I have walked a few trails from Arles via Turin to Rome -when on my way to Jerusalem in 2013. It was a grand experience. I have some wonderful memories.

From Arles I followed the GR 653d to Montgenèvre then over the pass to Cesana-Torinese...

...From there I continued along the Via Francigena via Turin as far as San Quirico d´Orcia. At which point I turned left and made a detour across Tuscany and Umbria, along local paths and sentiers, via Castiglioni del Lago, Isola Maggiore and Perugia, to Assisi...

...from Assisi I followed Il Cammino di San Francesco via Rieti to Rome then beyond.

Afterwards i put together a couple of resources and posted them here on the forum (sign in to download). Included were stages walked, places to shelter, and notes on guide books, pdf´s and maps. Although it is a number of years since I walked to Rome, there may still be something of use to you in them.

All the best with planning, @Samos.

I'm sorry if I seem a Doubting Thomas - but really you walked all that way with just a 9L pack? Awesome!!

Yes! Until 2012 I carried a 35L pack on all my walking pilgrimages and through hikes. Since then, to avoid arthritis and damage to the neck and shoulders I have carried a lumbar pack. I aim at 4 kilos of essentials plus 2 litres of water. I have been on the move as a pilgrim since 2009... The journey via Jerusalem to Amsterdam lasted 18 months.

Cheers!

Hi, We are going to do our first walk and will start in the south of France at St Jean du Gard. We will have our luggage transported from hotel to hotel. This looks like a pretty easy process to...
I would be interested to know if anyone's done this? Thanks.
