For 45 days, we will walk the main route of the Via Romea Strata, the millenary itinerary that crosses Europe, starting from Tallinn and arriving in Rome. The idea is to unite along the Via Romea Strata anyone who shares the desire to walk this journey. This is the opportunity to discover together an area that is rich in natural beauty, cultural, religious and historical, but that is also often underestimated.
Anyone can participate in this experience, walking together with us in the parts of the itinerary they prefer. The journey will start from Aquileia along the Apennines, crossing Fucecchio, in Tuscany, arriving then to the final destination: Rome.
Thanks to this experience, we will discover Italy and the ancient route of the Via Romea Strata – walking at a slow pace, we will enjoy and explore Italy with all its thousand stories and facets.
The tour is experience made on foot which will allow us to discover and meet local realities and locations, through events, concerts and manifestations.
The Pilgrimage Promotion Tour is a pilgrimage that aims at rediscovering and valorizing the faith, religiousness and culture of the Via Romea Strata, the ancient pilgrimage route which crossed the regions from the Baltic Sea to Rome. The route was rediscovered and made viable again by The Homo Viator – San Teobaldo Foundation of Vicenza.
The Pilgrimage Promotion Tour has the objective of promoting the entire itinerary of the Via Romea Stata, over 4.000 kilometers that are divided into three editions:
2021 – from the 13th of May to the 28th of June: 1,100 km were covered in 47 days from Krakow, in Poland, crossing Czech Republic and Austria, and arriving in Aquileia, in Italy.
2022 – from the 14th of May to the 29th of June 29: 810 km will be covered in 49 days from Aquileia to Rome, continuing the relay race begun in 2021 in the first edition.
2023 (dates to be defined): the northernmost stretch of the itinerary will be covered, from Tallinn, in Estonia, to Krakow, in Poland.
The Via Romea Strata is a heritage shared by seven European countries, crossing over 4,000 kilometers of wonderful natural landscapes, artistic works, history, faith and culture. Today the route is entirely mapped and georeferenced.
