The Urban Trekking is a guided tour across the most mysterious and odd venues of the city, itineraries that mix sport, art and nature, because the tours are exclusively by walk, in the center but also in the peripheral areas of the towns. Is a soft trekking, so we suggest to wear cosy clothes to be at ease, and has the advantage to respect the environment and to avoid the urban traffic, in other words is the praise of slow tourism that is opposed to the frantic pace of everyday life.
We give you some previews about the Senese itinerary, reminding you to the official website for others information: the starting point is Piazza del Campo, at 5:00 pm and every 15 minutes until 6:30 pm, so you can choose when you want begin.
