Urban trekking is a sport for everyone and is a new concept of sustainable tourism. The itinerary on foot through the streets of a city of art characterized by uneven surfaces does not require any special training. It proposes to live the art cities as places to walk, with the nose, bringing together sports, art, taste and desire to be together in the open air.

Tourists, visitors are invited to walk the city center in which routes are those of the resident population, and lead them in the streets and squares, and climbs stairs, views of the city and countryside views.
