Itineraries of the soul
Paths that revive moments of spirituality, inspired by religious expressions or the reception of nature. To find situations that can be removed from everyday life, for a few days or longer, following a religious vocation or even choosing a single area for leisure and sporting activities. From the way of Francesco and other proposals.
In Val Tiberina, following the footsteps of St. Francis in Tuscany, the path evokes the symbol of the yellow Tau - which characterises the path - to trace the footsteps of St. Francis in Tuscany, the paths of the Cai (Italian Alpine Club) and Rev (Valtiberina Hiking Network). The choice is limited to two ways: the first following path Alpe della Luna reaching Pieve Santo Stefano, Hermitage of Cerbaiolo, Hermitage of Montecasale and Sansepolcro; and the second following the Hermitage della Casella, Caprese Michelangelo, Montauto castle, Cenacolo di Montauto, and finally Anghiari.
The same route can be used as a round trip of a total of about one hundred and twenty kilometres. At Eremo della Casella there is a path that connects Pieve Santo Stefano by passing through Caprese Michelangelo.

In Alta Umbria, we find the small town of medieval origin called Valfabbrica, on a crossroads of pilgrimages and paths of faith, but also of naturalistic and cultural itineraries that follow the footsteps of monks and travellers who once travelled along the path connecting Assisi with Gubbio, that today is part of the Via Francigena.
And as we all know, all roads lead to Rome, in Romagna Forlivese one can walk and learn the story of the Abbot Alberto Abate who, in 1232, was the Abbot in the Benedictine monastery in Germany on the south of the river Elba, who walked from the mouth of the River Elbe in Germany, on a pilgrimage to Rome. The purpose of the journey was to meet Pope Gregory IX to ask for permission to move towards a more rigid discipline. This route is called the via Romea Germanica and is divided into stages with stops in Forlì, Meldola, Civitella di Romagna, Galeata and Santa Sofia.
