Have you ever heard about a vertical forest? If you decide to run this tour you will experience it with your own eyes. The “Bosco Verticale”, a skyscraper that resembles a forest has been nominated in 2015 as the best building in the world, and has quickly become an icon of Milanese architecture. Porta Volta is Milan’s new design district and runners will be introduced and likely also impressed by this new area where the architecture is disruptive!
But Milan is more than just a modern city, it is also a town rich on history and you will see it; from the ancient roman bath, to the medieval castle and the Duomo Cathedral with its 3200 statues. Runners will also admire Teatro alla Scala listening to the legend of its phantom.
The running tour proceeds towards Parco Della Vetra that was the place where witches were burned in the 1500s and is today a popular nightlife spot. Next up, runners will arrive in Navigli’s area, a suggestive district surrounded by canals crowded by traditional restaurants and bars that today is the perfect place to enjoy the evening “aperitivo” ritual.
And if after this run you are in dire need of some rest, the running tour finishes in Giardini Pubblici one of the biggest park of Milan where people enjoy the Italian sun.
After experiencing this running tour you will know the city like Milanese people!
