Architecture Culture

One of the most beautiful cities of art in Tuscany, it is a must-see on a classic itinerary to discover the region. An experience to discover the hundred churches, amid medieval alleys, Renaissance squares and countless bell towers.

A stop at the hundred churches and the countless gastronomies rich in Tuscan delights.

A stroll on the walls

Don’t miss out on a complete tour of the perfectly preserved ancient city walls. The walls embrace the city for over four kilometres, offering the visitor a unique viewpoint.

In fact, along the inner route you can admire the monuments, churches and ancient palaces and from the outer one, outside the walls, you can have a privileged view point on meadows and green expanses, framed by the unmistakable profile of the Apuan Alps in the background.
