Where to stay
Out of the Municipality
Our municipality is part of the Garfagnana, an emerald green valley nestled between the sharp peaks of the Apuan Alps and the delicate Tuscan-Emilian Apennines mountains. Many countries are worthy of a visit, including the internationally Barga with its cathedral and Ghivizzano with its medieval castle, which are both just a few kilometers from our village. Going up the Garfagnana other villages lie ahead, such as Castiglione di Garfagnana, Castelnuovo Garfagnana or Pontecosi to name a few among many. Even the military architecture is particularly fascinating with the strongholds of Verrucolette and Montalfonso recently restored and ready to go. Outdoor activities are definitely a highlight of the valley with many trails both the Apuan Apennine side, trails ranging from wonderful walks to suit all, to more challenging routes but equally fascinating suitable for experienced hikers. Even cyclists can feel at home in our valley with paths both MTB on asphalt, with legendary climbs like the Passo San Pellegrino and its impossibly steep. Even on horseback you can discover the valley through the many equestrian centers that organize courses of ippotrekkings. To discover the other hidden gems in the valley, we refer to the website:
