The Tuscany region
Lunigiana lies between the coastal province of Liguria to the west and the Apennine mountains to the north-east. To the south-east the region is dominated by the peaks of the Parco Alpi Apuane beyond which are the Renaissance Cities of Florence, Pisa and Lucca. Lunigiana is a veritable paradise for walkers, painters, photographers, and those who simply enjoy the pleasures Lunigiana is the undiscovered northernmost tip of Tuscany and lies between the coastal province of Liguria to the west and the Apennine mountains to the north-east. To the south-east the region is dominated by the peaks of the Parco Alpi Apuane beyond which are the Renaisance Cities of Florence, Pisa and Lucca.
This is an area of outstanding natural beauty dotted with ancient hill-top villagesand terraced olive groves. Not yet discovered by tourists the area is economically poor but rich in other ways. Here the pace is slow, the food and wine robust and the smiles as warm as the sunshine. Here the old-fashioned courtesies are observed and the stranger made welcome.
Lunigiana is a veritable paradise for walkers, painters, photographers, and those who simply enjoy the pleasures of life, and is full of natural curiosities such as the caves near Equi Terme, site of the natural sulphur baths. There are also castles, churches, monuments and whole villages built before Columbus set sail for the New World. Names of once-mighty families such as the Medici and Malaspina are commemorated by the fountains, piazzas and palaces they left behind, and all of this is within an hour or so train ride or drive of their more famous cousins to the south - Florence, Pisa and Lucca. And if that is not enough there are festivals, street markets and palios a-plenty - often in medieval costume.
The main town in the area is Aulla from which the Taverone and Aulella valleys radiate, the hillsides of which are covered with chestnut woods and high meadows. At the end of the Taverone valley the Lagestrello pass marks the route through into Parma Province, the source of the River Taverone and the end of the Crenale mountain ridge. Leading more directly east from Aulla the old Lucca road runs along the Aulella valley, through Casola and on into the Parco Alpi Apuane before turning south along the old pilgrim road to Lucca.
Bordering Lunigiana to the west, past La Spezia and the famous pretty fishing villages of The Cinque Terre is the province of Liguria, with its sandy beaches and pleasant climate. life.
Lunigiana is easily accessed by road, rail, or air. Five airports at Pisa, Genoa and Parma (Milan) serve the area and all are within easy driving distance of Aulla on good motorways. The main motorways run along the Mediterranean and Adriatic coasts with connecting motorways between the two.
From France the Mediterranean coast motorway runs through Genoa and on down the coast to La Spezia, Pisa, and Rome. Aulla, the gateway to Lunigiana, lies just off the motorway that connects La Spezia with Parma and the Adriatic coast motorway, which runs north-west to Milan, Switzerland and Germany.
Rail routes follow a very similar pattern.
Getting around in Lunigiana is quite easy with good road and rail connections as well as bus services between the major towns and cities.
