tutti i colori della valleriana valdinievole.png

Also known as Switzerland Pesciatina, attributed to it by the Genevan historian Jean Charles de Sismondi , this mountainous portion of Tuscany adorns the north of the town of Pescia in the province of Pistoia like a crown, enclosing historical, naturalistic and architectural that leave amazed the tourist and the shrewd hiker.

Always a borderland between the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the State of Lucca, its woods, the alleys of the villages, the thousand streams that cross it, tell the millennial history of the communities that created this territory.

The ancient roads that connect the 10 Castella are now paths to be tackled at the leisurely pace of walking or with adrenaline-pumping bike rides.

You know, physical activity makes you hungry, what better opportunity to taste the gastronomic specialties directly from those who produce them; tastings at farmhouses, farms and trattorias will be the ideal time to relax and let yourself be lulled by the stories of the guests.
