Geez...they've ripped us off saying Canterbury is only 1460km! I'll clock up 1800km tomorrow (on my way to Siena). Even though I started in London, they're still out by approx 200 hard-won kilometres. Great pic though...I'll keep an eye out for it.No reason to post but this sign is worth looking out for. And there is a water tap beside it.
147km to go.
How beautiful! Thanks for the preview A.
Oh my...I want to cry looking at that sign! Imagine coming all this way & only having 100km to go...
My 1800km so far is from London so even deducting the 160km Ldn-Canterbury, the signs are very approximate indeed!
Well done A...& congratulations (not the right word but the closest I can get) on your achievement, accomplishing what you set out to do, solving all the problems along the way & hanging in there.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 the yellow Coffee stall in Formello. He serves only that strong dark expresso that Italians like. When asked for milk or hot water to tone it down, he wasn’t able to help. He did though ‘water’ it down with Zambucca which made the next section more interesting.
My final stroke of luck is 8 miles away there is a flat well marked cycle track that leads almost to the Vatican door. No problems in getting into Rome and no hassle either.
So that’s it. And if you intend to do this then enjoy it. You won’t do it a second time.
