Location & area
The Lunigiana region derives its name from the port of Luni, established by the Romans at the mouth of the River Magra. So rich and splendidly adorned with marble was this port, that the Normans destroyed it, mistaking it for Rome. Today you can see the ruins of this once great trading place. Historic sites are not restricted to Roman remains, however,as the Lunigiana is scattered with castles built in medieval times by the Malaspina family.
The village of Aulla was founded towards 884, when the Abbey of Saint Caprasio was built. Towards the end of XIII the century the territory passes under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Luni, for being then disputed from Pisa, Lucca, Genova and the Malaspina family. Aulla is characterised by the Fortress of the Brunella,(many of you may have read of this in Kinta Beevor's 'A Tuscan Childhood'), military construction of the XV century was built in a strategic position from which it could dominate all the city. The Fortress was erected probably under Giovanni delle Bande Nere.
Nowadays houses the Lunigiana Museum of Natural History.. .
Some of the well-known places of interest are:
Carrarra - In the Apuan Alps, the spectacular marble quarries offer an evocative sight. This precious white stone has been quarried since Roman times. Since then, it has been used for all sorts of different purposes - from simple objects to more famous works of art and architecture. In the art studios of Carrara, at the Marble Museum and Open Air Exhibition, it is possible to learn about the history and working of marble.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
