Garfagnana back to the origins

This is the green unspoilt nature area north of Lucca. Here the time goes slowly and the small medieval villages preserve some artistic beauties but simplicity is the keyword: the Devil’s Bridge, Barga and its magnificent Duomo overlooking the valley and surrounded by the Apuan Alps… the top hill fortress will allow your kids to experience a medieval battle as if they were real knights of the past.

If you are foodies you cannot miss this destination because here you can come to meet that brave biodynamic winemaker or the producers of that cheese or prosciutto you tasted at the fancy restaurant in town.

Are you not curious?


  • The landscape! The total not touristy destination!
  • The Devil’s Bridge
  • Barga, Castelnuovo or Castiglione Garfagnana as perfect examples of a typical Tuscan village
  • The food!
