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!
