Saint Vicinio Way



Cammino di San VicinioThe Walk of Saint Vicinius includes 14 legs for a total of 400 kilometers that weave through Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, crossing through 14 municipalities of the provinces of Arezzo, Rimini and Forlì-Cesena.

Thanks to the circular route, it is possible to chose where to start as well as to chose to do just a few legs.


Dedicated to the first bishop of Sarsina, the Walk of Saint Vicinius offers the chance to experience whole days in touch with nature, where no sign or sound reminds you of the city: completely marked, both with paint marks and signs, it has a detailed guide and a website and can be done on foot, by bike or even on horseback.


The peculiarity of the Walk of Saint Vicinius is that it developed along old mule tracks and footpaths rather than along paved roads. This choice makes its main characteristic clear: it is designed to exalt spirituality, even non-religious spirituality, through walking in nature, in an area that still bears the signs and testimonies of the spirituality of those who lived here.


What links all of the legs is a continuous testimony to the beauty and value of nature, as well as the call to a spirituality that, as seen in a simple “Mistedia” (a marker of where someone has died, usually during WWII) or a millennium old cathedral or parish church, offers the soul of those who take on the Walk the benefit of meeting with its true essence.


The association Il Cammino di San Vicinio issues the Pilgrimage Credentials.
