Walking is the maximum expression of slow tourism and one of the best ways to discover and learn about a territory. Which is why an ensemble of government bodies, clubs and associations have come together to organize the Grand Tour Valdichiana marathon. There will be 9 stops along the Grand Tour trail, for a ring route that crosses towns and villages such as Arezzo, Castiglion Fiorentino, Cortona, Pozzuolo sul Trasimeno, Montepulciano, Montefollonico, Torrita di Siena, Sinalunga, Lucignano, Marciano della Chiana, Monte San Savino and Civitella in Valdichiana.
Taking place on 13rd May 2018, this is the first marathon to take place in Valdichiana and will start from Arezzo, continuing along the historic Via RomeaGermanica, then reaching Castiglion Fiorentino and lastly Cortona.
There will be 3 routes to choose from:
- The family trail: 10 km from Arezzo to Sant’Andrea Pigli
- Half-marathon: 24 km from Arezzo to Castiglion Fiorentino
- Marathon: 42 km from Arezzo to Cortona
