Location & area

BARGA, one of Toscana's most beautiful hillside towns, is situated 21 Miles north of Lucca at the southern end of the spectacularly beautiful area known as the Garfagnana which sits between the Apuan Alps and the Appenines in the very north of Tuscany.Barga is an important centre of the Garfagnana, has wonderful views of the whole area and the town itself is a charming network of narrow streets, archways and winding stairways.
The upper (and older) part of the town is to be explored on foot and has all sorts of hidden alleyways and tight staircases leading to who knows where the streets play host to an unusual Living Nativity pageant each Christmas.The town grew up around an ancient Lombard castle and was surrounded by a wall with three separate gates.Barga hosts art, opera and jazz festivals as well as weekly markets, great local restaurants, swimming pool, riding school.

Barga is often known as "The Most Scottish Town in Italy" due to the thousands of emigrants who left this area in the last century during the famine to start a new life in Scotland. Many made their fortunes in the fish and chips and ice cream businesses and return each summer to their home city.

Italian Touring Club has recently assigned the "orange flag" of the "Migliori borghi d'Italia" ("Best villages of Italy"), a distinguished sign recognizing the peculiarity of its beauty and of its quality.
Locally there are lots of interesting towns & villages to visit and many excellent walking trails & mountain bike trails.


""GARFAGNANA"", with its mountains and its woods, is a fruitful valley, rich in history and traditions, that, crossed by the Serchio river and its tributaries, divides the Apuane Alps from Appennino Tosco-Emiliano.
Within easy travelling distance from famous artistic cities like Lucca, Pisa and Florence, Garfagnana offers an unpolluted environment, where you can fully immerse yourself - walking on the paths of the valley , going on horseback or by bike, or along the old mule-tracks, which lead you to discover picturesque villages, traditions and the history of this land.
