These tiny villages, part of the Cinque Terre National Park, overlook a charming stretch of the rugged Ligurian coastline. Along with Portovenere, they were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

Lucca is the perfect example of a medieval city. Known as "the city of 100 churches" for obvious reasons, it offers visitors the chance to step back in time and soak up the distinctive medieval atmosphere. The Ponte del Diavolo [Devil's Bridge], shrouded in mystery, is one of the most picturesque sights in Italy.
Together with its distinctive shape, the lack of information regarding the bridge's construction has inspired numerous folk tales and legends. Around 30 minutes from the bridge you'll discover Lucchio, the most precariously placed village in Tuscany, with its steep streets and woodland surroundings. Inhabited since Roman times, the village experienced a golden era during the Middle Ages and many reminders of this period can still be found here, together with the curious stories that are linked to it.
A magnificent ruin, abandoned for centuries, an ancient chapel that houses the sword thrust into stone by Saint Galgano, frescoes dating back to 1300 and legends that have been inspired by this enchanted place… all this and more awaits you upon your arrival in San Galgano!
About an hour from San Galgano is something quite unexpected: a desert! This expanse of land with its unusual formations which give the area its distinctive lunar appearance is bordered by the Abbey of Monte Oliveto.
The Antro del Corchia, or Corchia caves, is the most extensive cave system in Italy and forms part of the Apuan Alps Regional Park. The cave can be visited on guided tours (with local guides). In the Apuan Alps Regional Park, you can get a closer look at the workmanship of pure Carrara marble and discover the names of the sculptors who, throughout various eras, created magnificent works of art which are now housed in the most prestigious Italian and international museums.
In southern Tuscany, overlooking the sea in the Gulf of Baratti, there are even more villages which give us an insight into ancient times: the Etruscans inhabited this area as far back as the 8th century BC, taking advantage of the natural metal deposits in the hills. After visiting the remains of the ancient city of Populonia, you might enjoy relaxing on the sun-drenched beaches on the coastline or, if you prefer something more active, you could explore the ancient Acropolis and Necropolis.
Malaspina Castle is an ancient residence, protected by the Italian government department responsible for monuments and historical buildings. It is situated in Fosdinovo, in the Province of Massa Carrara. It is the largest, most important and best preserved castle in the Lunigiana region and has recently been restored. It is said that the castle is still haunted by the ghost of young Bianca Maria Aloisia, the daughter of Jacopo (Giacomo) Malaspina and Olivia Grimaldi.
This young girl fell madly in love with a young stable boy. Her parents, completely opposed to a romance that would bring shame on the family name, threatened to lock the poor girl in the castle dungeons. Bianca was undaunted by these threats and refused to abandon her romantic ideas. This rebellious attitude prompted her parents to make a serious decision: the stable boy was driven out of town and the girl was sent to a convent. However, Bianca did not want to take her vows or give up on her dreams of romance. She was sent back to the castle, locked in the dungeons and tortured until she came to her senses.

Situated on a tuff rock hilltop, Toiano is an uninhabited ancient village dating back to the Middle Ages.

Bolgheri, mentioned in Giosuè Carducci's famous poem, "Davanti a San Guido" [In front of San Guido], is known for its picturesque avenue of centuries-old cypress trees leading the way to the village walls and, in the opposite direction, stretching as far as the eye can see, down to the vast expanse of the sea. This excursion includes a stop-off at a winery, where you can sample Bolgheri wines, produced by important local estates.
