Viterbo to Rome traffic?

My husband and I are thinking of walking the Viterbo to Rome section in early May this year. In the past he has walked much of the Camino De Santiago but this will be my first long distance walk. Having seen some worrying reviews regarding walking next to heavy traffic he is worried that it may not be the lovely experience that we would hope for. Is this section of the walk fairly rural? Obviously we realise that walking into Rome will be busy. We are in our early sixties, love ancient history,wildlife and beautiful scenery so would be disappointed if the majority of the walking was more urban. We do not speak Italian, will this be a problem?
Thanks for any comments. Wendy

This is also the section with perhaps the greates density of history: loads of Etruscan and Roman artefacts! If done carefully, one of the most interesting sections!

Thanks for your replies. We are booked and looking forward to the walk in early May. We have looked at the route carefully and have added in some diversions away from the main roads. My husband says it will not add too much to the mileage. We shall see!

Leaving Sutri is perhaps the most dangerous morning's walk of the entire Francigena. It's a shame really as Sutri is a delight , packed with archeological wonders and boasting a marvellous Roman ampithetre . Iwouldnt want to miss these sights but given the option again I would take a taxi to cover the ten km leaving the town .
