3 days hiking in Garfagnana and the Mid Serchio Valley

The Garfagnana is an ancient valley nestled between the Apuan Alps and the Tosco-Emiliano Apennines, shaped the River Serchio and its tributaries, which have helped the growth of vegetation on its slopes that is both wild and difficult to access, thanks to which it is still excellently preserved and not subject to mass tourism.

Because of its strategic position between Liguria, Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, crowned by mountains and close to the sea, for centuries, the Garfagnana was a crossroads of religious and commercial routes, leaving traces of this history in the form of a rich artistic patrimony and ancient artisan and agricultural traditions. Medieval towers and castles blend with churches, historic buildings and museums, evoking the memory of the famous figures who once pass through this area, from Ludovico Ariosto to Giovanni Pascoli. Today, the valley is the ideal place for a vacation marked by nature and tradition, where you’ll discover a lush, unspoilt countryside and walk the paths linking historic villages and castles.
