Trekking in Tuscany: Monte Sumbra, Isola Santa and “ghost town”

Garfagnana valley First weekend of June our team has visited Garfagnana – one of the best places for trekking in Tuscany, but less-visited by tourists. The Garfagnana is a historical and geographical region of central Italy, today part of the province of Lucca, in Tuscany. It is the upper valley or basin of the river Serchio, and thus lies between the Northern Apennines’ main ridge to the north-east and the Alpi Apuane to the west. Garfagnana offers the best hiking paths in the region. The territory is also rich in history and gives the chance to discover ancient castles, imposing fortresses and spectacular medieval villages. Its culinary specialties (spelt, chestnut, mushrooms, cheeses or hams) are delicious and well known.
