410 km / 258 km in Emilia-Romagna
Marked by a strong religious and spiritual meaning the trail offers a unique opportunity to pass through lands rich in unspoilt nature with a slow perspective on landscapes dotted with hermitages, ancient villages, castles and cities of art that are typical of a large part of Emilia-Romagna.
Starting from the Basilica of St. Anthony at Padua, the route winds southward for more than 400 km, entering Emilia-Romagna at the picturesque ford over the River Po, passing through Ferrara and continuing to the Sanctuary of St. Luke in Bologna, an important place of religious significance and pilgrimage, and then toward Romagna.
The route joins Dante’s Way, the Way of the Gods, the Romea Germanica Way, Assisi Way, St. Francis’ Way from Rimini to La Verna.
St. Anthony’s Way is listed in the Altas of Paths of the Mibact.
