The St Francis Way, also called Camino di Francesco or Via Francigena di San Francesco, is a walking trail inspired by the life of St Francis of Assisi. St. Francis abandoned a life of luxury for a life devoted to Christianity after reportedly hearing the voice of God, who commanded him to rebuild the Christian church and live in poverty. The St Francis Way takes an ancient Roman road between Florence and Rome following in the footsteps of Saint Francis across stunning and peaceful countryside, passing important Franciscan sites such as Assisi and Rieti, in Umbria. The Camino di Francesco or St Francis Way finishes at the Vatican and has been followed by many pilgrims inspired by the life St Francis of Assisi.
