We will start our day with a short introduction about Vierbo. We leave Viterbo and the splendid quarter of San Pellegrino. The cathedral and the Palace of the Popes was where various synods were held for 70 years and where the pontiff sought refreshment from the Roman summer heat and its tumultuous past. As we exit the Etruscan streets, we begin to cross the extensive hazel groves of the Viterbo area to Vetralla.

We stay in the village of Vetralla arriving as we descent the Crimini Mountains from the western slope. Vetralla is famous for its porcini mushrooms, so maybe we can get a nice treat for dinner.

Day 3 Wednesday April 10, 2024 :   Walk from Sutri-Monterosi-

Campagnano

Meeting Point: TBD

Description: We have decided to cut a 9km section via regular bus from this stretch. It’s on asphalt and not fun. BUT instead, we will have a tour of the Mitreo and Amphitheatre in the morning. As we approach urban Rome, the views are not what they were when we started in Tuscany. This is a great opportunity as Sutri is probably one of the most beautiful and interesting villages for this leg.

Monterosi is on the foothills of the Sibillini Mountains: we leave from here, traveling along part of the ancient Via Amerina, towards the waterfalls of Monte Gelato:, along the Treja River. Frequented since prehistoric times, the site preserves traces of multiple settlements that have succeeded one another over time: from the remains of a Roman villa from the first century B.C., to the agricultural settlement of the eighth century A.D. to the nineteenth-century watermill that remained in use until the 1960s. It is a popular place for movie script writers and commercials. In the evening we arrive in Campagnano di Roma-we really are at the gates of the Eternal City!

FORMELLO + MONTE MARIO -   SAN PIETRO ROMA

Meeting Point: Hotel Benigni

Time: TBD

Description:We decided to group two stage of the Francigena into one. Walking into cities is not the best thing for our tired legs and walking with cars and industrial complexes and houses, not too fun. We selected the most enjoyable and pleasant parts to arrive in Rome as much as possible in beauty. From Campagnano we arrive in beautiful Formello ( 10 km)passing by the Madonna del Sorbo, a very evocative place of popular devotion.

A car transfer from Formello to the Monte Mario park will allow us to skip some not so nice looking areas. From the park we have an incredible view of Rome! Slowly we descend to St. Peter's, where we will collect our well-deserved "testimonium" (Monte Mario park to Rome
