Activities and Relax in Garfagnana
If you love nature and hiking, you can visit Monte Forato a natural arch which connects the two minor peaks situated along the crest which separates Versilia from Garfagnana.For a unique and impressive spectacle of beauty, we recommend the panorama of the nearby mountains Panie.
For a beautiful example of underground caves and tunnels, we suggest a visit to the Grotta del Vento,where there are splendid limestone formations.
If you are a passionate about old buildings we suggest you stop at Eremo di Calominia characteristic monastery built in the 13th century and situated at the base of a cave in south Garfagnana, near Gallicano. Another important example of ancient construction is the Fortezza delle Verrucole an impressive fortress near Villa Collemandina,which dominates the entire Garfagnana.
