Lunigiana: A Land of Castles & Natural Beauty

A magical land whose borders come from ancient Roman settlements, its history from prehistoric man and its castles from the consistent need to protect its territory from the constant battles between ruling families.

Whether you are spending time in one of the many little towns, which are beautifully preserved or you need a day trip inland after touring the Tuscan coast, Lunigiana will surprise you with its varied landscape, its vast patrimony of stunning castles and fortresses and it's authentic, yet personalized, flavors in the kitchen.

The northernmost point of Tuscany will introduce you to the via Francigena which makes its way to Rome starting with Passo della Cisa, Pieve Sovrano, and towns like Pontremoli and Aulla. Stop and visit the museum of the stele, and the enchanting stone sculptures that still leave many questions unanswered about the people who let them behind.

The valleys are home to the rivers Magra, Verde and Serchio, this land is rich and fertile, while the lofty height of the Apuan Alps provide hikes and trails for all levels.
