A few people commented on avoiding the urban walk the last day but I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.
Yes, about half was urban but the other half was through a Nature Reserve and then over Monte Mario providing spectacular view of Rome below for pilgrims walking here from afar.
We even came across a wild boar!
Walking into St. Peter’s Square is just incredible after walking here the 2,000K from Canterbury. An 86 day experience that I will never forget with so many great memories.
And it is so quiet! Covid seems to be coming back.
We walked afterwards to the pilgrim office for a certificate and a pin with the Papal Crown and Keys of St. Peter.
Our first and our last pilgrim stamps.
