Back in the XVI century Father Filippo Neri and his friends had the habit of walking together in the afternoon. This was the beginning of Rome’s most famous pilgrimage: the Seven Churches visitation, which on February 13, 1586 Pope Sixtus V Peretti made official. The route was 16 miles long and it was initially covered in two days. The procession wound its way round the seven major basilicas of the city.
Sightjogging offers a running version of the Seven Churches pilgrimage, in a different age, maybe, but still fascinating.
