    Where did you walk ( locally ) in 2020?

    Fantastic pics TG. Sorry to be following up with today’s pics of the end of the Old Way. Totally disappointing as you finish on a bit of scrub land next to a golf course. Hopefully no one else will make the same mistake. If anyone is thinking of doing the route, I’d suggest starting at...

    Where did you walk ( locally ) in 2020?

    Still to finish the ‘Old Way’ so have traveled to Canterbury via some old churches and vineyard. Quite a few vineyards in the area. Hope to finish tomorrow

    The final stages have you posing as Sigeric in Vetrella if this appeals and then onto Sutri After Sutri there is a steep climb into Campagnano . Between there and Formello there is a wonderful country park with families out enjoying barbecues and picnics. Then onto Formello . A word about...

    You are quite correct the sign outside Canterbury does say 1800km. When I asked they said it was ‘approximate’

    Your next milestone is Montefiascone, the home of the Catholic Bank, and ground zero for those wanting a shorter walk. Plenty more pilgrims in evidence. And those on the route have been very good to the lost souls who share this journey.

    Counting down now. This is the view when you first descend into Bolsena with its castle . The town is pretty but full of tourists.

    No reason to post but this sign is worth looking out for. And there is a water tap beside it. 147km to go.

    Route advice: Isola D’Arbia

    It is an underpass for the rail line there. The line looks closed so the access has a gate across it. To cross the rail line you have to go up to the road leading into the town itself. The old sign directing people is still there beside the cafe. Hope you got the marching band when you...

    Route advice: Isola D’Arbia

    When you first come into the industrial part of the town there’s a cafe about halfway along the route. Beside there is a sign suggesting you go through an underpass. This underpass is closed so you have to go up the hill and onto the main road turning to the left into the main town. Be aware...

    Don’t know what happened to my reply. Probably as I using a phone . I will do a longer piece of the 260 miles when I have completed along with GPS tracks so readers check the height profiles . Biggest issue so far is wate.

    VF - walking on the side of the highway or on designated paths.

    Agree with Kaz. You’ll find a mix of roads and trails. It’s quite unlike a Camino . But you’re quite safe as they may be fast but alert. And if you make it safely to your destination they’ll put out a marching band for you. Today in San Miniato.
