So we can get it out of the way: il Seniero degli Dei is gorgeous:
Let’s all oooh and aaaah over how astonishingly beautiful it is. Because, holy god, it’s stunning. But it’s also a PAIN to get too, more challenging than advertised, devoid of trees for 95% of the actual hike, and a path to heat exhaustion. In the next post, once we’ve all recovered from the loveliness, I will recount a tail of waiting, waiting some more, walking, descending, waiting, and vomiting. Fun times.
