Questo cache è collegato al progetto “GEO FRANCIGENA” (vedere il progetto in (visit link) ed è posta nel punto di partenza dalla Città del Vaticano del viaggio dell'arcivescovo Sigerico da Roma a Canterbury nell'anno 990, quando fu in Roma per essere nominato Arcivescovo dal Papa Giovanni VI. Il tracciato attraversa le regioni di Lazio, Toscana, Emilia, Liguria, Piemonte, Val d'Aosta (Italia), Vaud (Svizzera), France-Comtè, Champagne-Ardenne, Picardie, Nord Pas de Calais (Francia), Kent (Inghilterra). Oggigiorno i pellegrini partono da qui, ma in treno! Il cache è posto vicino alla Stazione Ferroviaria del Vaticano. Si tratta di un cilindro di plastica contenente solo il logbook.

ATTENZIONE! L'area è sotto la stretta sorveglianza della Sicurezza Italiana e Vaticana. Videocamere sono puntate sulle mura e agenti in borghese pattugliano il confine. Agite come agenti segreti! Siete in una missione in Vaticano! E.. credetemi essere considerati possibili terroristi non è una bella esperienza! I poliziotti dei servizi non sono così amichevoli..
