  • Beautiful, a quaint village, the classic Tuscan village, cobblestone streets going up and down.

  • Nice old town, but similar to other Italian villages. Some bridges and ancient walls are nice, you can have a Cappuccino at every corner, and most likely it’s more lively with warmer weather.  more »
  • Good evening, majestic building of 1200 in perfect condition over the years among many family residence of the Este family and the great philosopher Ludovico Ariosto. If passing through Garfagnana not to be missed ...

  • La Rocca Ariostesca of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana shows the typical appearance of medieval buildings with towers at the corners and the square tower at the Center. The original structure dates back to the 9th century, then the building grew during the domination of Lucca Castruccio Castracani of Antelminelli: first with and then with Paolo Guinigi. When then Castelnuovo became capital of the province of Este, la Rocca performed the function of administrative seat of Government and residence of the Commissioners: named after Ludovico Ariosto, who was the ruler of Garfagnana on behalf of Este from 1522 to 1525.
