The Tuscany Region has been working for some time to the development of an alternative tourism addressed primarily to younger generations, but also to all those who prefer a type of individual holiday able to give authentic and creative travel experiences, with preference for destinations where you can enjoy a mix of adventure and relaxation.
On the occasion of the ITB Berlin, our region, first throughout Italy, has become part of the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA): the leading international trade association, which today has over 1.300 members in over 100 countries in the World.
In the wake of this trend, the municipality of Vagli di Sotto, which last year inaugurated an impressive rope bridge suspended on the eponymus lake to completion of a tourist ring route very interesting from the scenic and cultural point of view, now, on Saturday May 27, will open to the public a new tourist attraction called "The angel flight" It is an acrobatic crossing, already in use in some other Italian mountain resorts, with harness along a steel cable located at about 400 meters altitude. The flight will be 1,5 kilometers long, and those who try it will reach the speed of 150 km per hour.
Three are the flight manners with which you will be able to take the descent:
Single in free style, that is bound by a simple harness that allows maximum freedom of movement.
Single seated in a special paraglider seat.
Single and double with a harness system that allows the user to fly laying face down to better enjoy the beautiful view.
The structure is also designed to accommodate disabled users so that they can also participate in the descent safely.
A shuttle bus service will take the brave downhill fliyer to the launch point.
The adrenaline rush is guaranteed to all lovers of strong emotions. And so, enjoy the descent!
