Day 86 La Storta to Rome:

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.
