Viterbo to Rome traffic?


New Member
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
