3rd edition of Nordic Walking in Siena.
A whole weekend to discover the beauty of the town, Nordic Walking in Siena, through alleys and squares within the ancient city walls.
What is The Nordic Walking?
Nordic Walking is a easy and funny outdoor sporting activity. Its an-aerobic workout builds endurance as well as bringing countless benefits and well-being for body and mind.
What kind of equipment do I need for Nordic Waking?
It ‘a sport that can be practiced at any time of year so a pair of good trainers and Nordic Walking Sticks are enough to start.
Why Nordic Walking is good for health?
Nordic Walking is 40% more effective than a normal walk. In fact, with the help of specially designed sticks to accomplish a dynamic thrust, you can actively engage and in a natural way, almost all the muscles of our body. In this way you will increase up to 45% more calorie consumption.
Nordic Walking in Tuscany is a great way to discover this region. Moreover Siena offers to the Trekking lovers the chance to practise guided Urban Trekking too.
Why don’t you join the Nordic Walking in Siena?
This time we will take you to discover the Ancient Fountain of Siena.
A very interesting topic and full of mystery as there are many legends about the existence of an underground river called La Diana of which we can hear the flow of water but nobody found a trace. From the Gothic style Fountains, to the famous one such as Fonte Gaia in Piazza del Campo and smaller fountains of the 17 Contradas.
The walking path will take you through the alleys and squares as well as the wildest and still wooded areas, within the ancient city walls.
The arrival will be, as always, in the charming Piazza del Campo, the place of the Palio Horse Race, where … you can also taste the homemade chocolate exhibition CioccoSI-Chocolate Festival.
It’s going to be a Weekend full of sports, Art, History and Wine Tasting!
