Lunigiana

Things to do - general

Lunigiana is an “unconventional” region of Tuscany featuring a spectacular mountainous territory embraced by the Parks of the Apennines,  Apuan Alps and the Cinque Terre, as well as a fairytale world of hundreds of hilltop medieval villages and castles.

This historic area related to the Roman city of Luni, has indeed more in common with the nearby regions of Parma and the Cinque Terre if considering its history, traditions, culture, cuisine and even its dialect.

You do not need to be a passionate of history to marvel at the mysterious stele statues sculpted by the very first inhabitants of this land – the Liguri Apuani, or to enjoy ancient legends about ghosts and werewolves.

The Middle Ages still live on along the Via Francigena – the ancient path trodden by pilgrims on their way to Rome, which in this part of Tuscany created, and still is, a natural corridor from the mountains towards the sea. A gate through centuries where modern times seem to never come.

The strong relationship between man and environment has deserved this Land to be recently recognized as a UNESCO Man & Biosphere Reserve, in order to enhance an environmentally sustainable development.

Either you are after rustic cuisine following traditional recipes and way of cooking, hidden medieval and baroque gems, or unspoiled landscapes, Lunigiana awaits to be discovered on foot, horseback, by bike or exploring its amazing rivers and gorges.
