Today, we will continue hiking in the Tuskany region, however we leave it during the day, with tears in our eyes.We then come into the Lazio region, the last one on our pilgrimage to Rome. Soccer fans will recognize «Lazio», because it's part of the name of a top soccer club in the italian league, Lazio Roma.
From Ponte a Rigo to our destination, we will have two alternatives, the newer and slightly more hilly trail on the right hand side of the Fiume Paglia, which is away from traffic, and the traditional trail mentionned in former documentations listed here as «Variant A». This one follows the Via Cassia on the left hand side of the Fiume Paglia. Whatever alternative we choose, the altitude we reached yesterday will be gone once we have reached Ponte a Rigo.
At the southend of our destination Acquapendente, we will find the «Chiesa del Santo Sepolcro» with a crypt carried by 22 columns. Ee can find a copy of the tomb of Jesus Christ inside, the original tomb is located in Jerusalem, at the end of another historic pilgrims trail.
Variant A: we leave the main trail at Ponte a Rigo and remain on the left hand side of the Fiume Paglia until shortly before our destination, where we cross the Fiume.
The «Via Francigena» is one of the 3 main christian pilgrimage trails of the Middle Ages, the main axis leading from Canterbury to Rome. This documentation currently covers the most frequented section from Lausanne to Rome.
