The suggestive roads of an ancient hamlet. An itinerary in a place, so to speak, with a double soul: now there are luxuriant chestnut woods and a majestic mountain, now there are wonderful panoramas of the sea. And the possibility to discover all of this is the Nordic walking in Marciana, on Elba Island. A walk that will be held on 20th September 2015.
The stages of this nordic walking itinerary are:
- The ancient hamlet of Marciana
- Capanne mount
- San Cerbone hermitage, one of the most ancient in Elba island
- The Home of the Park of Marciana, where a Nordic walking trainer will give you all the technical information about this sport
Upon request, they can give you all the necessary equipment. The event is totally free.
