We will finalize our pilgrimage today and have accepted the special experience when hiking with heavy traffic. Most of today's «trail» is along the Via Trionfale, which helps to remember that Romans had many triumphs to celebrate at their time. Actually, this road would take us to the Piazza San Pietro directly, however, a more recent signalization takes us to the east starting at the «Piazzale Delle Medaglie D'Oro 62» (remember, the Olympic Games 1962) and let us finish the pilgrimage along the Viale Angelico to the Piazza san Pietro with the St. Peters cathedral. Congratulations to all who have reached here their targets.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to the team of 5 volunteers, who have developped this documentation in 3 months during summer 2011, a description in 4 languages of the Via Francigena between Lausanne and Rome. Rob is the only one of this team who has made the pilgrimage to Rome, and he made available his great pictures to the team and to you. 3 other friends translated the German texts: Michel into French, Paolo into Italian and Ruth into English. Mario finally cared about the tracks, the profiles, the German texts and the team coordination. And last but not least, gps-tracks.com has sponsored to geo-referenced digital trail map needed.

Note(s)
The «Via Francigena» is one of the 3 main christian pilgrimage trails of the Middle Ages, the main axis leading from Canterbury to Rome. This documentation currently covers the most frequented section from Lausanne to Rome.
