Day 38: San Miniato Basso to Chianni

This morning, Markus and I start our walk uphill to San Miniato Alto. After a nice breakfast with a great view, we collect a stamp in the church and off we are to enjoy the most beautiful views of Tuscany.

All up and down, today’s walk is more strenuous. But the beauty around us definitely makes up for it.

We find a sign that tells us it’s less than 300km to Rome. Which isn’t true anymore. But encouraging anyway. So much behind me. Getting closer and closer to my goal!

We also find a pilgrims’ book which we happily sign. The Canadian couple were at that place three days ago. I guess I won’t see them again…

After many kilometres without a single bar (i.e. Coffee) we reach today’s destination. A pretty new hostel for pilgrims in the church building of Santa Maria a Chianni. It’s amazing and located just before Gambassi Terme, which would have been today’s goal if their hostel had a shower…

Our multicultural group has found together once more. That should make for a good dinner time 🙂
