Things to do in Lunigiana, Liguria and Tuscany

Italy, and in particular Lunigiana offer a huge variety of things to do during your holiday. Because of its varied landscape, ranging from the high peaks of the Apennines to wide Taverone and Aullela river valleys, the region offers a tremendous range of activities in addition to the well-known sightseeing trips.

Walking, biking or horse riding in the hills, swimming in pool, sea or river, skiing in winter and scenic drives are all here.

The grandeur of the mountains and the natural unspoiled beauty of the hills topped with medieval villages provide a wealth of subject matter for artists and photographers. Add colourful traditional festivals and lively street markets and you have everything you need for a memorable holiday.


We have prepared some guides to activities you may want to try while on holiday in Italy:

Italian Beaches - Many beaches in Italy are privately owned and you have to pay to use them. However, there are also many public beaches, which are free of charge. Some beaches have sports facilities such as water ski-ing and dinghy sailing, others may be a simple rocky cove. Find out more in our [more ...]

Golf in Tuscany is one of life's joys. The mild climate, the naturally varied ground and spectacular landscape combine to create a golfing experience that is always a pleasure and often challenging. In Tuscany you can play in all seasons and the clubs are regularly open all year. The choice of venue is varied, from the wonderful country club in Punta Ala to the supreme course of Ugolino, located at the gates of Florence on the Chianti hills. Many courses are in or near tourist resorts some, but not all, near the sea. [more ...]

Walking - There are literally hundreds of miles of footpaths and hiking trails in the area ranging from arduous high level walks to sedate paths between villages. Most of the tracks are well maintained and are clearly marked with distinctive red and white stripes painted on walls and rocks.

More serious walkers may want to try the Parco Alpi Apuane where Mt. Pisanino rises to 1,945 metres, or perhaps a drive along the Taverone Valley and a lovely walk over the Lagastrello Pass. [more ...]

Scenic Drives -Wherever you stay in Lunigiana your holiday villa or apartment will be close to some of the most wonderful scenery in Italy so scenic drives are one of the pleasures of the area. [more ...]

Swimming - Quite apart from sea-bathing this area offers many opportunities for swimming both in good public swimming pools and in safe river pools. River bathing is popular in some areas particularly around Licciana, Bagnone and Pontremoli (for example at Guinadi). There are swimming pools at Villafranca (Olympic size set in wooded grounds). There is also a smaller pool and tennis courts, a snack bar and pizzeria. Cormezzano between Aulla and Fivizzano just past the Gassano turn has a pool with water chutes. There are also swimming pools at Lerici and at the Equi Terme spa (sulphur baths). [more ...]

Shopping - Shopping in Italy can be a varied and rewarding experience especially given the Italian reputation for stylish high-quality goods. Not all shopping pleasure is confined to the big stores and chic boutiques of course, there is plenty of pleasure to be had, and bargains to be sought in the local antique and speciality markets. [more ...]

Wine - Tuscany is of course famous for its wine, especially Chianti.[more...]
