Gary, I added 3 Pages from my Guidebook. and 1 Foto from the Monastery La Verna

They are 3 Canmminos/Via's,

for understanding

1. Via Francigena, you know it, this is the way you like to go, over Lucca, Siena, Bolsena to Rome,

2. Via Francesco, starting from La Verna (great Monastery from san Francesco) to Rieti Valley, there are 4 famous Monasteries, and ending in this valley at Poggio Bustone, the Guidebook is written by Mrs. Serachioli

3. Franziskusweg, wich I walked, starting near Florenz, over la Verna, Gubbio, Rieti to Rome. written by Kees Rodenburg, a Dutchmen.

I started at Gubbio, so I have 3 days to walk to Assisi, not so heavy, in a lovley landscape. After Assisi I must over the Mount Subasio, 1000 m up. This was the reeason, why i began 3 Days before.

La Verna, is on a Pass,  you will find eastern 390/40 km from Florenz, Northern from Gubbio, The Village near is "Chiusi La Verna", also at the Pass. Left down you find "Bibbiena", and right "Pieve San Stefano".

Best, Hans
