Day 24 Via Francigena, Lucca to Altopascio, 19.4km

Date: Monday 3 September
Distance covered to Rome: 639.9/1027km
Terrain: Again, too much edge-of-road walking.
Overnight: Comune o biblioteca, €10
Feeling: glad to be off the busy roads

There is not much I can write about today other than it was gloriously short!

The path seemed to stick to roads and streets the whole way and most of them were busy. There were a couple of short stretches through the fields to escape the traffic, but they didn’t last long. I have been surprised by the amount of road walking on this route. For some reason I assumed it would be more rural or cross-country. Maybe the few stretches I did in the north are all I am going to get.

At least it was cool and overcast the whole walk. Perhaps this is the start of Autumn?

My big news for the day is that tonight I am sharing a room with a lady from Canowindra! Talk about small world!

Tip of the day: just because there are walkers ahead doesn’t mean they know where they are going. Follow your own directions!
