About the Event
This is a LOOP walk just outside the city centre, from San Niccolò to Piazzale Michelangelo along the panoramic roads and paths of the hill of Arcetri. We will see the church of San Salvatore al Monte and will have a close look at the castle of Torre del Gallo and the Astronomical Observatory. We will hear about Galileo living here and will have the opportunity to go through the private garden of Villa Curonia, where some of you have already visited and know it as Casa Bogner. We will hear about some of the fascinating history of this beautiful Villa and why it being our centre of light/energy work makes sense.
Distance: 10km (6.21 Miles)
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.

Extra info re: This is a slower paced walk steeped in history. We will make some stops to discuss the history and importance of our location. If any of you came on the first semi -urban walk, it will be like that. On the way back we will walk down to Signorvino near Ponte Vecchio , so you can decide to go home from there instead of coming back to San Niccolò.
