Yesterday I clocked up 1800kms on my walk from London to Rome.
Tonight, I'm in Buonconvento (a great choice to stay after the hustle, bustle & crowds of the Big Tickets; Lucca, San Gimignano & Siena) where I came across this gem.
At first it was a bit of a shock to see there's just 200km to go...written so blatantly & brazenly.
Then I looked at the other part of the sign....
Roma; that-a-way ➡
& the Via Francigena is sending you
that-a-way ⬅
.....sounds about right to me! 😂

I was in Buonconvento about 10 days ago - and you are correct, it was a gem of a find. I took the same photo that you did; with the same thoughts. Best wishes for the rest of your journey!

Thanks B...we have a similar sense of humour...& you need one on the VF! 😊 If you're walking the VF & 10 days ahead of me, you must be nearing/in Rome by now (making lots of assumptions here..!). So best wishes to you also..wherever you may be.
