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

Join AMI on our second annual virtual walk. It’s free! This time we travel to Ragusa, in Sicily.

Are you longing for a stroll over sun-warmed cobblestones? No need to book a flight. Let AMI take you on a virtual guided walk through the hilltop city of Ragusa in southeast Sicily, Italy. Sicilian tour guide Elisa Ottaviano will take us through the maze of narrow streets and show us the Duomo di San Giorgio, the views from the Giardino Ibleo and other jewels.

What’s the idea behind AMI’s virtual walks? We all know that exercise is good for our physical and mental health, 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 get us up on our feet, keeping us moving during our hour-long virtual tour. You can participate as much or as little as you choose from the comfort of your own home. Presentation in English.

The event is free! Register now to join us on Sunday, February 12 at 10:30 am. Everyone who participates will be eligible for our door prize, too — a surprise souvenir of your short trip to Italy!

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

Frequently Asked Questions

It will be on Zoom (not Google Meet). When you register, you will be sent a link.

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.

Worried about being watched or looking silly? Don’t worry–you won’t be on camera!

Those who show up are eligible for a draw for our door prize: a $50 gift card for the Italian specialty store Berchicci, an importer of fine cheeses and Italian specialty foods. (Fun fact for Nutella fans: Berchicci was the first to import that famous hazelnut-chocolate spread to Canada.)

Yes you do 🙂

Nope! Unlike our interactive workshops and support groups, this event is being held on Zoom. It will be a webinar, so you will not be on camera.
