Day 81 Part 2 Bagnaccio to Viterbo:
All roads lead to Rome.
I knew nothing about Viterbo coming in but found it one of the more beautiful and interesting cities on the VF.
Viterbo was not only beautiful but interesting historically.
During the middle and end of 13th century the Papal residence was moved here before resettlement in Avignon, France.
2 Popes were interned here.
An artist Cinzia Chiulli is heading a project whereby Via Francigena Pilgrims ink their names and start and end of Pilgrimage in a stone.
These stones will be laid on the Via Francigena coming into Viterbo!
Tarot Cards for Pilgrims. A very nice experience to have her start the stone and then we finish it by inking our names. Look forward to returning to see that!
Viterbo is a great walking town.
Around every corner there seemed to be something of interest.
I think Viterbo is a good eating town. Had a very tasty sandwich at Buongusto Piadmeria.
