Set between the Apuan Alps and the main chain of the Tuscan Emilian Apennines, the Garfagnana extends entirely within the Province of Lucca and is characterized by a wide variety of landscapes. The territory is crossed by the Serchio river, which contributes to creating a thick and luxuriant vegetation, which is well completed with the rocky profile of the surrounding mountains.
Not only rivers, meadows, hills and mountains, but also medieval villages, castles, legendary bridges and ghost stories: aspects that make this land an obligatory stop, even for a single day, for anyone who decides to spend their holidays in Tuscany

Piazza al Serchio, the Verrucola Castle, the Grotta del Vento, Borgo a Mozzano and its legendary Devil’s Bridge or the ghost town of Vagli di Sotto.
