Corri La Vita

A 12km mini-marathon and a non-competitive 6km walkathon fundraiser benefiting research on breast cancer.

The walk wound through the historic center of Florence and crosses over the river to the Oltrarno, stopping along the way to visit gardens, churches, palaces and museums that was opened especially for this occasion.

This year's itinerary included many interesting places to visit like the church and crypt of Santo Stefano al Ponte, the Tribune of Galileo's in the Museum of the Specola, the Museum of Natural History, The palace "Non Finito" and then through the Boboli Gardens entering from Rondo of Bacchus, passing the amphitheatre, the steps of the Meridiana, the Botanical Gardens, the fountain on the island and the lawn of the Columns.
