Win! An eight-day walking holiday for two in Tuscany on the Via Francigena, worth over £1,500
You could win an eight-day walking holiday for two in Tuscany on the Via Francigena with Cicerone and SloWays.
The Via Francigena is an icon for walkers. This UNESCO-listed, Europe-spanning pilgrim route threads the countryside of England, drops in on the storied architecture of France, fords Switzerland’s peaks and ends with a picturesque finale in Italy.
Cicerone is publishing its third and final guidebook to the Via Francigena this month, which means the entire 2,000km pilgrim route from Canterbury to Rome is now covered.
To celebrate, we've joined up with SloWays, the original Via Francigena expert, to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a walking holiday for two to hike the pilgrim trail through Tuscany...
THE COMPETITION PRIZE INCLUDES:
- Two places on an eight-day self-guided walk through Tuscany.
- With accommodation in a twin or double room.
- Eight breakfasts and daily luggage transfers and sustainable public transport transfers at the start and end of the trip.
