We will hear stories of Galileo living here among other fascinating facts.
Total climb : 350m
Terrain: mainly on paved roads, partly on Paths
Level: Easy in terms of paved roads and not much altitude change. You can wear sneakers for this walk.
What to bring: Backpack with bottle of water, snacks, if you like poles you can bring but not necessary, sun glasses, dress in layers.
