On the way through the varied landscape of Umbria and Lazio, not only churches, monasteries and crosses are passed, but also medieval castles, pre-Christian cantilever arches and Roman bridges and roads are on the way. In addition to Benedict, the path also crosses sites from the lives of other saints such as Francis of Assisi and Thomas Aquinas.
The landscape on the approximately 300 km long path is characterized by densely forested mountains, river valleys and green fields, wide valleys and lakes and there are always medieval villages along the way. Even if sections of the path unfortunately lead over asphalt stretches or roads with little traffic, lonely and remote landscapes of Italy are hiked through and the rich and varied nature is experienced.
