Hello from Malta

Hello all...after having walked the Camino in Spain and in Portugal, I am now planning to walk the last part of the Via Francigena from Viterbo to Rome in October 2016.

I have a few questions which I would be very glad if you help me out in.

1. Where can I have a good list of accommodation available throughout the route?
2. Is the route marked well?
3. How is the terrain in that part?
4. Are there any services offered to transport the backpacks?

Thanks
Eman

Hello Eman,

Those last 5 days into Rome aren't the prettiest of the Cammino but it is still very enjoyable walk. My thoughts on your questions:
1. The best accommodation list is from the Confraternity of Pilgrims to Rome website. Join them and get your credencial there. Their website seems to be down at the moment but check here later: http://www.pilgrimstorome.org.uk/accommodation/
2. I think it is very well marked but I still suggest that if you can, download the GPS tracks onto a smartphone app and use that when needed. It will likely save you a few km here and there. Also, make sure you take the scenic route from La Storta rather than taking to old main road. I describe the alternate path (also marked) on my blog: http://memismsitaliancammino.blogspot.sg/2016/05/day-36-la-storta-to-rome-210km-55hrs-28.html
3. The terrain is mostly flattish but there are a few steep but low hills to give you some challenge. It's not difficult.
4. I don't know of any baggage services.

Buon Cammino,
Michael
