Beat the February Blues: Join AMI on a free, virtual walk through Ortigia, Sicily

Are you longing for sunshine and a visit to a place you’ve never been? Let AMI take you on a virtual guided walk through Ortigia, a tiny, magical island off the southern coast of Sicily. Tour guide Elisa Ottaviano will be with us to share her vast knowledge of the history and culture of this historic centre of ancient Syracuse, a UNESCO world heritage site.

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. Yes, we will be on Zoom, but we won’t be sitting still: fitness instructor Maria Fragapane will get us up on our feet, keeping us moving during our hour-long virtual tour. You can participate in the physical part as much or as little as you choose from the comfort of your own home.

The event is free! Click here to register to join us on Sunday, February 13 at 10:30 am. Everyone who participates will be eligible for a door prize, too — a surprise souvenir of your short trip to Italy!

Coming soon! But they’re going to be great.

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.

Don’t worry, you won’t be on camera for everyone to see.
