Advice from the owner
Garfagnana is an hidden corner of Tuscany. Here you will find everything you need: nature, culture, history and ancient routes. Garfagnana is located in the northern part of Tuscany, not far from the sea (Cinque Terre and Versilia). The landscape of this region is shaped by Alpi Apuane, the highest mountains of the center of Italy, where people struggle to find the finest white marble, like Michelangelo did. In the valleys are located a lot of small towns, everyone has got its own tipical traditions. The things to do are always several: exploring natural parks with fantastic plants and animals, going throughout the biggest dungeons and caves of Europe (Grotte del Vento, Antro del Corchia) or simply walking and trekking. If you like genuine, fresh and richflavoured food, here you'll find a perfect synthesis of tuscan cousine and ligurian influencies.
