The descent from Radicofani along the old Cassia is one of the most beautiful and exciting stretches of the entire Via Francigena: all around us, as far as the eye can see, a hilly landscape and the silhouette of Mount Amiata, and behind us the Stronghold.

Once in Ponte a Rigo, we walk along the valley floor of the Paglia river, following the route of the Via Cassia up to Ponte Gregoriano, before facing the last short ascent towards Acquapendente. Refreshment points in Ponte a Rigo and Centeno, water available also in Ponte Gregoriano.

Be very careful on the stretch that runs along the SS Cassia (Cassia State Highway) between Centeno and Ponte Gregoriano, where you are forced to walk on the roadway along the SS Cassia.

Alternatively, you can walk along the variant that runs through Proceno, which is longer but also more pleasant and safer.
