Beat the February Blues 3: Join AMI on a free, virtual walk through Catania, Italy

Join AMI on our third annual virtual walk. It’s free! This time we travel to Catania, in Italy.

Now that the heat of summer is just a distant memory, let AMI take you on a virtual guided walk through Catania, an ancient port city on Sicily’s east coast. Tour guide Elisa Ottaviano will take us on a passeggiata – an evening stroll along the Via Etnea and on to the Piazza del Duomo, with its whimsical Elephant Fountain and the sumptuous Catania Cathedral.

What’s the idea behind this adventure? We all know about the physical and mental health benefits of exercise, but it’s not always easy to find the time and motivation to get up and move. We will be on Zoom, but we won’t be sitting still: fitness instructor Maria Fragapane will have us up on our feet and moving during our hour-long virtual tour. You can participate in the physical part as much or as little as you choose – but we hope you choose to move!

The event is free! It will be held in English. Click here to register to join us on Sunday, February 25 at 10:30am.

AMI is grateful to Cummings Centre for their invaluable support for this event.

Nope! While physical health and mental health are connected, we want you to participate as much or as little as you wish, or according to your capabilities. But we do encourage you to play along as you experience the tour.

We suggest having a chair handy just in case you need it for balance, and also some water. Wear your walking shoes and comfortable clothes.
