once you’ve seen, smelled, felt, and tasted Tuscany, you’ll want to devour as much of it as possible.
Paloma,our motorhome has journeyed into Garfagnana, said to be one of Tuscany’s most breathtaking regions yet has the least amount of tourists, With rolling hills, the Serchio River where water rushes through the lush green valleys, wooded areas and traditional old villages.
The mountain town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is to be our home, the weather has just turned a little Autumnal this week so with Michele wrapped up and me still in my shorts we headed into town for a wander. (N44.1144, E10.403343)
Today the town is alive with people, it’s race day everyone has headed in to sign up and meet friends for coffee and gossip.
The cafes and bars spill on the streets, market stalls galore fill every spare space.
Just outside the walls a local institution ‘L’Aia di Piero’ another delicatessen which has been going for many years.
Not wanting to have missed a thing in this delightful spot and a quick look on trip advisor anither possible gem appeared….
Just outside the town somewhere above us on a hill top was Este Fortress
The climb from the town took a while as we rounded corner after corner until the vast fortress wall cane into view.
