We take you on a tour through the Serchio valley, through hills studded with villas and farms, before arriving in dense conifer and chestnut woods. The few roads and the small, narrow-laned hilltowns that feature on the upper plains of the Pizzorne testify to the great importance that the area once enjoyed, when it was visited by anyone who was walking the Apennine passes. The churches, refuges and guest houses that surround the beautiful little towns are witness to this.
From Ponte Moriano, you climb the Pizzorne hills and then descend into the valley of the Pescia di Collodi stream. Turn off the road at Pracando and start climbing again towards Boveglio and Benabbio before coming down into the Lima valley, at Bagni di Lucca.
