A travel writer for The Guardian, a prestigious London daily, is in Umbria this week, walking the Via di Francesco from Assisi to Piediluco. This section of the itinerary includes stops in Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Foligno, Trevi, Poreta, Spoleto, Scheggino, Ferentillo, Arrone and Piediluco. Along the way the journalist will stop at many cultural and natural sites, both well-known (the Eremo delle Carceri, the Cascate delle Marmore) and less-visited (the Eremo delle Allodole, the Franciscan sanctuary of Monteluco).
The Via di Francesco is attracting increasing interest from tourists and the international press. Every year the number of pilgrims who decide to walk the Way increases. Sviluppumbria, together with numerous local partners and volunteers, is committed to maintaining and developing this path that is becoming a world-class destination for slow and sustainable tourism.
