The Tuscany region
Tuscany is a region on Italy's west coast, on the Tyrrhenian sea. It is one of the most popular places to visit in a country that is itself one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The first-time visitor to the lands of Tuscany can not but be amazed by the natural symbiosis between landscape and culture, history and the expressive means of architecture and town-planning, the urban and rural dimension, and its patrimony of art, architecture, monuments and museums. There are several reasons to visit Tuscany: some of the most important ones are visiting beautiful cities like Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa or charming town as San Gimignano, Volterra, Cortona, Montepulciano etc., eating Tuscan food and tasting the excellent local wines. Most of the important traditional wine producers are located along the axis formed by Florence and Siena. The most famous region is Chianti along with neighboring Montalcino and Montepulciano. Besides there are many other things you can do, for example, cycling, trekking, golf or go to a health spa. The Tuscany inland is characterized by hills, cultivated fields, farms, parish churches, castles, medieval hamlets. Tuscan mountains: in the Apuan Alps you will ascend into marble cathedrals, but you will also discover the kingdom of Lunigiana, full of enchanted caves and castles. The dazzling white of the quarries on one side and the wild, green valley of Garfagnana on the other. Go to the Casentino forests to discover their monasteries and hermitages along the way where nature is not the only thing to discover. You can be overcome by the triangular heights of Monte Amiata, so lonely, but at the same time full of roe and fallow deer, by mountains embraced in the world's most famous vineyards or by the wooded Abetone which transforms into pistes for ski lovers in the winter. There are miles and miles of pathways for trekking, mountain biking, skiing, but also for absolute rest. The climate in Tuscany is very mild. The most beautiful season is May, September and October. So the main season to travel in Tuscany is spring, summer and autumn, especially because the landscape at that time of the year is very beautiful. Usually the summers in Tuscany are warm and without rain.
THE GARFAGNANA AREA
Someone has called the green island of Tuscany and in fact this valley, but close to important historical towns such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the flamboyant and fashionable Versilia, was closed in itself, living its own history and building a strong identity that still retains. From Garfagnana you can easily reach famous historical centers as Lucca, Pisa and Firenze, as well as the sparkler Riviera della Versilia, La Spezia and le Cinque Terre. Closer, almost a unique part with Valley, Lunigiana, with its castles, Serchio Media Valley, that with its Devil's Bridge (Ponte del Diavolo) in Borgo a Mozzano let start the geographical entrance to the Lucca province mountain area, we share with Alta Versilia a good part of our mountain chain. The Apuan Alps, which divide to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Apennine Mountains to the east, enclosing the valley like a casket. Garfagnana, literally Great Forest, so this valley seemed to its first visitors and even today you will be astonished in front of the extension of its lush forests. Man-planted, cared for and cultivated the chestnut up to 1000 meters above sea level, wild, intricate, finally the beech which go up, over 1700 meters and, year after year, trying to regain the heights of mountains nude.In this immense mass of green appear, almost suddenly, perched on a hill, perched on the high plains that slope towards the river, overhanging on vertiginous cliffs, the many small towns that characterize the Valley. Ruts in the narrow streets, inside the medieval defensive walls, time passes slowly, the rhythms are those of the past, the games of boys the same for centuries, the "workshops" have an antique perfume. the Valley is a real invitation to enjoy a relaxing holiday, relax on the edge of a swimming pool or lying on a fragrant meadow of "pepolino" (wild thyme), silently listening to the sounds of nature that surrounds us. Let yourself be enthralled by this goslow, it will be easy to discover hidden corners of the Valley which offer entirely different aspects to the change of the seasons: the footpath, landscape, Woods, colours every time will be for you a new emotion.
