Opened in 2008 in memory of the first bishop of Sarsina, San Vicinio’s Way is a journey along the boundary ridge between Tuscany and Romagna and Montefeltro, ending where it begins.

This circular journey differs from others and although it’s possible to start the  route at any point, it’s advisable to set off from in front of the Basilica of San Vicinio in Sarsina.

The trail is quite safe and offers the opportunity to spend whole days surrounded by nature, walking along the paths and old mule tracks leading towards Camaldoli and the Sanctuary of La Verna, Tuscany, and then back up towards the Adriatic in the direction of Cesena, a historic crossroads on the Via Romana-Sarsinate, and thereafter returning to Sarsina.

This route is inspired by that of the ancient Rome-Arezzo-Ravenna road, which guaranteed access to the Casentino and Aretino areas, allowing pilgrims to travel towards Rome or to the Padana Plain.
