Abstract This article contains the Italian translation of an itinerary of the journey to Jerusalem, written in Hebrew and until today not translated into any other language. The original text was written by an anonymous disciple of Ramban, either towards the end of the 13th century (after 1270), or at the beginning of 14th century. The itinerary describes the Holy Land, beginning in the north and moving towards Jerusalem: Akko, Haifa, Mount Carmel, Usha, Sichem, Jerusalem, Beth-Lehem (Rachel's tomb) and Hebron. An additional itinerary of Galilee is especially dedicated to the visit of the tombs of the Jewish righteous. These are the places, among others, mentioned in the text: Meron, Gush Halav, Kefar Baram, Tiberias, Arbel, Araba, Kefar Kenna, Sepphoris, Akko. The pilgrim who wrote the itinerary was a pious and learned Jew who had good knowledge of Jewish literature and was proud of his culture. He succeeded in identifying the places he visited, thanks to his erudition.
