A relatively unexplored part of northern Tuscany and eastern Liguria, the Lunigiana is a land rich in history and things to do: fascinating castles, Romanesque churches, medieval villages and streets, prehistoric stele statues, ancient pathways of the Via Francigena and refined works of art dating from different centuries. It’s a territory to be explored slowly, taking your time to appreciate every single nuance, savouring the local food, such as testaroli, panigacci, chestnut flour, honey, olive oil, wines, cured meats and cheeses. There are many towns worth visiting in Lunigiana including Pontremoli, Filattiera, Bagnone and Villafranca in Lunigiana.
