Italy 23 September: Subiaco - Arpino

On Saint Benedict Pilgrimage Road

We start our day in Subiaco meeting the students of the Secondary School, Istitituto Compreensivo of Subiaco in a beautiful park by the river.

We had few games and enjoyed fun moments with the kids.

Everyone had the chance to hold the torch and make a wish for Peace

We were honored by the presence of the Mayor Mr. Francesco Pellicia

The Mayor made the first steps leading the way to Arpino

Some of the students shared the beginning of the road with us.

while climbing the Simbruini mountains we were surrounded by the beautiful Italian nature and singing birds

we also found some friendly cats on the way

fragrant flowers

and wilderness....

The Liri Runners climbed with us a 7 kilometers run until Arpino where we were welcomed by the Mayor, Mr. Renato Rea

We then rest in the city where the historical figures of the Roman Empire, Cicero, Agripa and Caius Marius, were born
