A rural enclave in northwest Tuscany which has remained largely unchanged by tourism, the Garfagnana Valley is one of Italy's best-kept secrets.

Day 2 Day walks

The Garfagnana is within reach of the Tuscan gems of Lucca, Pisa and Florence, but its appeal lies more in exploring its enchanting forests, pretty hilltop villages and striking scenery.
