Day 41

Posted by on February 16, 2019

From: Colleferro

To : Finocchio

Miles: 19

Total: 644

Today was basically a repeat of yesterday, but more sidewalks today and the towns were closer together as we got nearer to Rome.

Again we couldn’t have asked for better weather to walk in. At just a few minutes past noon we decided to stop for lunch. The restaurant was clean and modern. We thought the waitress understood we wanted a hot panini, but we ended up with a cold sandwich. Oh well, it was fine with our knock off cheetos and a Fanta.

We headed back down the road and eventually came to the Metro Station. It is the furthest stop on its line from Rome. We went right on by since we had already decided to stay at the orignal hotel that John picked in his planning even though it made our trip 19 miles for the day. We just figured it was too much hassle going into Rome tonight on the metro and then catching it back out in the morning.

About two miles past the train station we came to our hotel. The hotel is above a Gelateria, Bar, coffee shop so we were a bit concerned whether the hotel would be nice. The shops down below turned out to be very nice and very busy.

We asked the guy behind the gelato counter about the hotel and he said it was the door around the corner. It was right outside around the corner and someone caught up to let us in. The hotel and rooms turned out to be very nice as well so again we lucked out. Once we dropped off our packs in the room we headed downstairs and grabbed some gelato. It was a perfect way to end the walk. We will probably head to a local pizzaria that the hotel receptionist recommended for dinner.

Tomorrow we have only around 11 miles to go to make it to our B&B in Rome so it should be a nice short day. I hope everyone has a great Saturday!

All roads lead to Rome.
