Day 3 Abbey of Farfa

I Left early in the morning with the train at the Lago Transimeno, to continue my route where I left it 3 days ago.
My feet seems to be reasonable and the first days to come are not too long 15 till 20km a day.
I arrived in the abbey of Farfa the afternoon. The abbey used to be an important centre of religious and civil governance in the region. It has the largest collection of medieval copied books and documents after Rome. A sculpture depicts the 1500 year history of the Abbey.
Because of the renovation works I could not sleep in the abbey but stayed in the nearby monastery.

More info can be found on the website of the Farfa abbey.
