Im walking with a mate starting in Siena on September 4th, getting into Rome on the 17th (we are having a couple of rest days along the way to enjoy the local wine, pizza and culture ).

Anyone else planning to walk in September?

Hi: A friend and I will be doing that same section, but we will be out there in late June/early July. Don't ask me why we picked what might be the hottest time of year. I don't have an answer for that. Once I am home, I'll likely do a brief write up of how it went in order to keep the info on the Forum current. Enjoy your journey!

You will be way ahead of me. I start from Great Saint Bernard Pass on 29 August... Enjoy!

I'd love to have the time to do all that, will have to wait a few more years until I retire. Since it's a long time until September, I've decided to head out to Italy in April and walk from Pietrasanta to Siena.

You are lucky just to be able to 'pop over' to Italy for short stints! I envy you! Happy walking.

I'm looking at walking from San Gimignano through to Rome but in May 2018 - precisely to avoid the summer heat (which has been particularly intense the last couple of years).
Bon Camino

I will be walking from Siena to Rome in September. But few days after you. I will arrive in Siena on the 9th and will start walking on the 10th. Btw, does anyone know accoglienza Santa Luisa in Siena? Do I need to book it ahead? It would be my first night unless anyone has any good advice for Siena to stay overnight?

Its a pity you start the week after me, the friend i was going with has had to pull out on Doctors orders it wouldve been nice to have company. The place you mention in Siena, ive never heard of. Im not doing the walk as a Pilgrim so im not staying in Pilgrim accommodation. I booked through Booking.com and Siena has proved to be a bit expensive but i got a place at a reasonable rate. Enjoy your walk.

I read one pilgrim blog which reported santa Luisa to be nice. it's in the southern part of siena. I think it's prudent to reserve in advance, it's a convent.
convento santa Luisa (11bb, HP donativo), via san Girolamo 8, 0577/284 377 suor Ginetta, drs+r, shower, wc, B 7h, D, ®!, all year -22h15.

pilgrims reported this pilgrim accommodation right in the centre to be very nice, too:
ostello Casa delle Balie = s Maria della Scala (25bb, BB €18), vicolo san Girolamo 2, 0577/286 300, 347/613 7678, 5dr in three locations (vicolo san Girolamo, via Fusari, piazza Duomo), shower €0.50/4min (exact change!), wm+dm, @+wifi, incl. bedlinen, ®!, Oct15-Mar15 10h-16h30+20h-22h, closed Feb?, closed Dec24-25, check-in Mar16-Oct14 11h-17h30 on piazza Duomo 2 (TO) + 19h-21h on vicolo san Girolamo.

Thank you Caminka!
Nice to hear from you as I will be using your accommodation list on the way :). Good job.
Btw - from your vast know how - it looks like they offer blankets almost everywhere? I am planning on having only light liner with me instead of sleeping bag.
Thank you again :)
