The river landscape is relaxing and pleasant in any season.
The Serchio flows near Lucca and does not cross the city, as usually happens. A natural environment where you can find nature and relax just a stone's throw from the city walls of Lucca.

A longing for fantasy, thick, shadowy forests, lights creeping through the foliage, castles dominating the valley and from which one can enjoy spectacular views of the mountains, torch-lit squares that come alive with Renaissance dances, sword duels and soldiers in armour.

Fantasy in these parts arrived with Ludovico Ariosto, governor of the Este Garfagnana.
