Day 38 on the Via Francigena

Campagnano to La Storta – Saturday October 13th – 14.4 miles in 6 hours 45 minutes – climbing 1443 feet.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own (and with friends). And you know what you know. And you are the one who decided where to go (Rome). Dr. Seuss

It feels so good knowing that the Fab Five will be walking into Rome tomorrow. We’re smelling the barn. I think we’d gallop if we had the energy!

Hotel Cassia is where we will rest our heads tonight. Twin beds in a private room. Clean.

It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out; it’s the grain of sand in your shoe. Robert W. Service

Roxanne’s post and photos:

Ladies and gentlemen, The Fab Five are now on final approach into Rome. Walked from Campagnano di Roma to La Storta. This last stage before Rome took us through pastureland, shady woodlands, 6th century BC Etruscan burial sites, a waterfall and an ancient water mill. Gluten free eating is easy in Italy!
There’s an APP called AIC (Italian Celiac Association) that shows where Gluten free meals and products are sold and those options are everywhere in Italy even in tiny villages.

    Hello, FAV 5 please ask Darrell & Roxanne, if you go to the St. Michaels Square (Vatican) (don’t go out of your way) there is a post office trailer there, please buy me a stamp that has a picture of the Pope. – it’s a nice souvenir.
    Please do not go out of your way!! Only if you go there . . .

    There once was a team called Fab Five
    Who would walk, climb, take pictures and jive
    They followed a path
    With great food and a bath
    And in Rome they did finally arrive!

    Love to you all for a fabulous trip!!!
