Nordic Walking Siena – Sport Weekend

The 6° edition of the Nordic Walking Siena is back on March 16th and 17th

What is the Nordic Walking?

The Nordic Walking it’s a sporting activity, easy and funny, to practice outside. It’s an aerobic training that develops resistance, which brings an infinite number of wellness and benefits to the body and the mind. On this edition, the path is of about 10 kms and it will cross the city centre of Siena. This is going to be a good occasion to discover part of the city centre less reknown, such as the stable where the horses are kept during the Palio Race and of course the main monuments of the town.

So why don’t take advantage of the Nordic Walking Siena’s weekend?
