There are several paths, of every difficulty and for all interests, that wind along this paradise: two are particularly interesting for us, given the nature of this route. The first option is to continue along the Franciscan route; on the other side, if you want to engage in an excursion to the top of the mountain, take instead the path that detours through the woods, and follow it until you reach the Chapel of St. Francis, the first refuge of the Poor Man of Assisi in this area, to enjoy the remarkable view of the Holy Valley of Rieti.
Whether you prefer to stay on the main route, or you are returning from the detour, continue in the direction of Greccio: the path, already quite easy until this moment, continues now downhill, giving further relief to the legs of the wayfarer.
You have now reached the end of this walk in the footsteps of St. Francis: after a few kilometres of walking you will arrive in Greccio, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy and famous for the first representation of the Nativity, requested by St. Francis in one of his many stays in the small town of the Lazio region. The Saint of Assisi also wanted the construction of the Greccio Hermitage, one of the four Franciscan sanctuaries in the valley of Rieti.
