The walking Festival has just finished but there are some special adventures that you guys can still experience in Tuscany. There is one that you have to try in one of the most beautiful islands of the Tuscan Archipelago: Capraia Island.
Rossana Galasso is a music therapist working on a project called "the source of sound". Her project started one year ago with the aim of immerging people who took part in her tours, in the colors, sounds and perfumes of Capraia Island and directing them towards the "listening" of stunning sounds of the islands nature. "The source of sound" was also part of the program included in the Walking Festival last Sunday (May the 8th) and that started from this beautiful island.
Why, How and Where
"Often the people that arrive in Capraia get here tired and completely stressed out from their cities", with this special tour, Rossana tries to make people feel comfortable in the nature, relaxing and gaining more energy.
The tour normally starts at dawn, the perfect moment in a day to get an extremely magic and energetic feeling! The tour starts from the central square of the Island and continues towards Bellavista, the perfect spot to see the sun rising, a special moment in which participants can receive a special massage to capture the energy of the sun.
Of course watches, mobile phones and snacks are not allowed during the tour.
The tour also touches "Lo Zurletto" and follows the Fairy Path, as people call it in Capraia.
Perfumes and sounds are really intense especially during spring time when nature seems to wake up and suddenly begins to stir.
Often, mouflons follow the group in the nature hike. The tour normally ends at the Piana of Santo Stefano.People in the tours get to walk a lot but with no stress at all, instead they gain great energy for the body and soul, to get ready to face the city again, or maybe just for a great day at the beach and the pure crystal waters of Capraia.
