Travel Program

The walls of Lucca, its villas, the Antro del Corchia and the Marble Quarries. Territory, art and nature in the three days of visits. Discover the treasures of a multi-faceted stretch of the Tuscan coast. A diamond that shines on the edges of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

1st day

Full board. Meeting with the guide and day dedicated to visiting Lucca, one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval cities in Tuscany with its perfectly intact city walls. You will stroll through its historic center discovering its characteristic alleys, its beautiful squares such as Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, Piazza Napoleone, Piazza San Michele and its large churches such as the Cathedral of San Martino, inside which there is the venerated wooden crucifix called " The Holy Face "and the moving monument to Ilaria del Carretto by Jacopo della Quercia. In the afternoon, visit some of the villas in Lucca such as Villa Oliva, Villa Grabau and the Royal Villa of Marlia with their immense and well-kept parks, built between the 15th and 19th centuries by the wealthiest classes to enjoy the bucolic atmosphere. The described path can also be done with ebikes.

2nd day

Full board. Transfer to Levigliani di Stazzema in Alta Versilia where the Antro del
is located Corchia, the most important underground complex in Italy and one of the largest in the world. Entrance and guided tour. The illuminated path about 2 km long that develops on walkways, steps or steps (about 1500) and natural soil allows you to enter the wonders of this sealed world, in the charm of the "Petrified Forest" or among the magical forms of the "Gallery of the Stalactites ". In the afternoon stop to visit the village of Isola Santa. The small village stands today on the ruins of an ancient hospitale, a resting place for travelers and pilgrims. On the shores of the lake it is possible to go for walks or picnics, breathing clear and uncontaminated air.

3rd day

: Half board. Visit to the Carrara marble quarries. You will go up in a 4x4 jeep to see how quarrymen and their families lived for centuries, to see the evolution of marble processing and its transport downstream. All seasoned with a succulent dish based on the typical product of the place: the lardo di colonnata. Upon returning from this day, stop in Pietrasanta, a jewel of medieval origin and the historical capital of Versilia. The splendid Piazza Duomo is undoubtedly the undisputed value of the city. End of services.
