The Via Romea Germanica is also known as Via Romea of the Alpe di Serra Street or Teutonic, or Via Alemagna or Via Romea or Via Stade Ungaresca.
The Hungarians and the Germans, as they were generally called the pilgrims from the central and northern European countries, followed two paths: one along the Adige Valley to Verona; the other along the Pustertal until Treviso. The latter route could be also called Via Ungaresca (or Via Ongaresca). Both paths eventually reach the Via Emilia, following it up to Forlì or arrive still in Forli after touching Padua, Ferrara and Ravenna.
In any case, in Forlì it begins the road, going up the Bidente Valley, crosses the Apennines up Alpe di Serra, near the present Mandrioli step. The path, sloping towards the Casentino Arezzo and continuing into the Val di Chiana, arrives in Orvieto, passing right in front of our farm, and then reach Montefiascone, a town in common with the Via Francigena.
The farm ” Cioccoleta ” then offers hospitality to pilgrims facing the road, with possibility to agree on special conditions for those who are in possession of the “Credential of the Pilgrim”.
From Umbria hills to Orvieto outcrop
The charm of Umbria landascape, of environment and of wide valleys which bow to the Orvieto outcrop. The Romea Germanica way, enclosed by Umbria hills, gives to pilgrims an evocative itinerary from the centre of Ficulle to Orvieto tuff stone. An unparalleled experience to be lived along the ancient roads of pilgrims.
Tuff and badlands, walking toward the Dying town
Overlooking on Lubriano valley and adimiring the impossible challenge of environment which consists of supporting Civita di Bagnoregio through a breakable spit of land. This is the fascinating aim which waits for the pilgrims who will decide to walk the Romea Germanica way from Orvieto to Lubriano, crossing Umbria and Lazio in order to reach the cape which dominates the Dying town.
