  • Accessible from a curvy road, is certainly impressive. Great event organized at the Casa degli Archi, very tasty meal and elegant setting. However do note that from the entrance there are directions to the "House of Strings", not visible from there, and especially going out at midnight in the cold and fog it was not easy to find parking, having the wrong path. Errors from unwary tourists, but also for tourists is designed this place. It is necessary to place some information plaques.

  • A beautiful fortress, an eerie silence and an exhibition to coincide with the Lucca Comics, what do you want more?. We arrived by chance and we enjoyed an unexpected surprise in the heart of Garfagnana.

  • The fortress of Mont'Alfonso is located just outside the historical centre of Castelnuovo. It's advisable to get there by car, but there is also a walking trail, called Ariosto's Trail leading to the gates of the Fort (not difficult walk of about 25-30 ' from Dan). The fortress has at its core a "modern" appearance with buildings all restored, beautiful home with bows and the Villa in liberty style. Only the old keep maintain state. Various events are held in the Fortress. Don't miss the opportunity to lie down in the meadows and enjoy the peace of the place in addition to the beautiful scenery of Central and elevated position. Also a restaurant but it is good to check if it is open.
