Itineraries: places, routes and Via Francigena


Garfagnana "big wood" is rich in magic and flavours...

The park of the Appennine, the regional park of the Apuane and the natural reserves are the access to a culture characterized by quality in its products, life and facilities.

The Via Francigena 
The ancient road that leads from Canterbury  to Rome (1,800 Km.), walked by  entire generations of pilgrims and believers, crosses the Garfagnana. 

The Italian section crosses the Alps at the Great Saint Bernardo Pass and it comes down towards the River Po Valley, crosses again the Appennines at  the Cisa Pass and then runs along rivers and lakes, crossing  Tuscany and Latium to reach Saint Peter Square in Rome. 

Thanks to its rich traditions, unspoiled places and history, Garfagnana is a paradise for hikers . Here, trekking is the sport par excellence, where you are always in contact with nature.
The peculiar landscapes of Garfagnana are unique, thanks to the diversity of the two mountain ranges marking its borders: the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine. A thick network of marked trails climb up both the ranges, offering trips of different length and difficulty. After the effort, hikers can refresh themselves with the countless delicacies of the Tuscan cuisine, which can be washed down with Chianti wine and other high-quality wines for connoisseurs.
