Hi to all, dear Explorers!

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO This time our starting point is the village of Castel San Pietro, a lovely town that is one of the most beautiful "borghi" of Italy. Perched on the top of Mount Ginestro (763 meters above sea level), 40 kms from Rome, the borgo has a long history, and its name is recorded in some documents dating back to the end of the 15th century, also with the variant Castrum Sancti Petri, due to the presence of the military fortress built by the very famous and important Colonna family. Castel San Pietro Romano became famous in 1950’s because Director Luigi Comencini shoot here his movie “Pane, amore e fantasia” (Bread, Love and Fantasy) (1953), starring Vittorio De Sica and Gina Lollobrigida, and the sequel as well , “Pane amore e gelosia”. From Castel San Pietro we walk through the typical hilly landscape of Sabina, with amazing view on the valleys, descending from Mont Ginestro to reach Salisano. During the hike, we find the hill of Mompeo, divided from Salisano by the deep canyon "Gola of Rosciano", and between them, on the top of a hill over the bushes, we discover the rest of ancient tower and walls of the ghost city of Rocca Baldesca.

Dear Explorers, this time we'd like to show you the beauty and the colors of Lazio countryside, with one of the most beautiful excursions in the area, in a territory at the gates of Rome, rich in history, tradition and natural beauty. WHAT WE ARE GOING TO SEE "Pian di Luni” or “Luni” is the name of a plateau, built by the volcanic rock, tufa, and lying by the river Mignone in the Comune di Blera, about 65 km northwest of Rome. On the southern side the Vesca stream meets the river Mignone while the northern side of Luni is flanked by the deep valley of the Canino brook, populated by lots of cows and horses in the wild. Next to Luni we find San Giovenale, an old etruscan village, then a medieval site and now a suggestive place surrounded by two rivers, Mignone and Vesca. Here the rests of the ancient human presence are magically integrated with nature, creating a very special environment, full of plants, woods, cows and wild animals. OUR ITINERARY We start from the plateau of San Giovenale, to take the old railroad tracks of the railway Capranica - Civitavecchia, now disused, walking on striking builds such as iron bridges and dark galleries! We admire a great view from the bridge, and then climb up to the plateau of Luni. Reaching the top of the hill, we find some remains of the Bronze Age, a hut, some cabins, and two etruscan "tagliate". We go down on one of the "tagliate" to meet one more plateau, where we discover some etruscan tombs, and one little interesting cave. Finally we descend to the confluence of the rivers Mignone and Vesca, admiring a very peaceful place, where the sweet waters embrace the valley. The last step is a short uphill to arrive to the parking place.

Dear Explorers, this time we want to share with you the fantastic experience of walking on the FRANCIGENA PILGRIM ROAD, from Orvieto to Bolsena Lake, the so called Road of Miracle! We pass through a fantastic scenario made of vineyards, olive groves, tufa rock and clay. The geographical area which currently includes the administrative borders of three regions – Umbria, Latium and Tuscany – was in ancient times the beating heart of Etruria. This winding itinerary starting from Orvieto and going through cultivated fields and rural towns will lead you across the border between Umbria and Latium to reach the largest vulcanic lake in Europe, the lake of Bolsena. HISTORY OF THE ROAD OF THE MIRACLE Orvieto’s magnificent cathedral was built in the fourteenth century to commemmorate the miracle of Corpus Christi, which occured in 1264 AD at the Basilica of S. Cristina in Bolsena. The Miracle A Bohemian priest, tormented by the doubt whether the consecrated host was Christ's body and blood, went on a pilgrimage to Rome in 1263 to strengthen his faith. On his way back he stopped in Bolsena to celebrate mass at the altar of Saint Christina's Basilica; at the moment of consecration he saw the broken host spill some stills of blood, that stained the Corporal, a linen cloth used during the functions. Once Pope Urban IV, who had been residing in Orvieto since 1262, learnt about the miracle, he sent the town's Bishop to Bolsena so that the latter would take the relic represented by the sacred linen cloth to the Church of Saint Mary; the Pontiff himself waited by the Rio Chiaro bridge for the relic to arrive and a solemn procession accompanied it to its final destination. The Orvietani thought the existing cathedral appeared too modest to host such a precious relic, therefore they decided a new religious building should be constructed, splendid and magnificent enough to match such a great miracle. ROUTE DESCRIPTION From Orvieto to Bolsena (15 km) Let's start from Orvieto, a very beautiful village technically in Umbria but off to the side a bit, wedged in between Tuscany and Lazio, sits on the top of a plateau made of “tufa” rock. At the beginning vineyards and olive groves will characterize the scenery around us as far as the eye can reach, together with wine companies and typical and well renovated farmhouses. Then we cross the countryside, and cultivated fields are gradually replaced by coppice woodland, mainly Turkey Oaks, Downy Oaks and Chestnut trees. Almost magically we find in the region of Latium, near Lubriano, a small municipality of 941 inhabitants, which is rich in history and traditions. Following ancient paths and secondary roads, across green fields and charming hamlets, we get closer to the lake of Bolsena. We drop to cross a clear rushing stream, and then we climb again to admire a series of magnificent lake panoramas. Ruins of a settlement dating back to pre-Roman times can be found on the hill above the old town. After passing a clear woodland stream we finally arrive at Bolsena town, celebrated for its Eucharistic Miracle.
