біля San Miniato, Toscana (Italia)

We arrived at San Miniato the day before, starting from Firenze by train and then by bus. San Miniato is a lovely typical Italian small city worth spending the afternoon. Have a drink at Caffe Central, view from the loggia is exceptional. Several nice restaurants. We stayed at the Miravalle hotel which was ok.

Very nice walk on the ridge of the hills dominating the Elsa valley. After walking 30-40 minutes, you will find a Bar Alimentari on the right side of the road where you can buy panini, fruits and enjoy a good expresso (we were there on a Sunday morning and it was open). We did a stop for lunch at the picnic area at Coiano (tables under the trees + water tap). I have rated this track Moderate but if the weather is rainy part of the path might be pretty slippy on some slopes (we experienced that).

We stayed for the night at B&B Villa Nicolli which we found great. Nice private terrace with view (photo). There is a kitchen you can use to cook your dinner. We contacted the owner before arriving to ask if she coud arrange a dinner for us. It was a great experience. Excellent salami e formaggio, home made pasta, and a good bottle of Chianti (photo). If you cannot book directly use booking.com.

The project: walk from San Miniato to Roma following via Francigena. We are targeting stages of 15 kilometers or less (up to 20 kilometers mximum) / 400 meters uphill maximum. We would like to sleep in decent hotels/B&B, enjoy good food and wine! We plan to divide this trip in walks of 3-4 stages. We will publish our trip on Wikiloc, follow us!
