Itinerary

Our itinerary starts in Fosdinovo, located at the most southern side of Lunigiana, where the Apennines meet the sea.
This picturesque medieval village perched on a green hill surrounded by vineyards and olive groves with spectacular views over the coast, has been granted the Bandiera Arancione by the Touring Club Italiano and is part of the UNESCO Man & Biosphere Reserve of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine, thanks to its cultural, historical and food heritage.
The Malaspina Castle, today privately owned, is one of the must-see not only in Fosdinovo, but in the entire Lunigiana valley.
Visiting its gorgeous furnished and frescoed rooms, you will learn the legends related to the castle and the Malaspina family, including the most popular legend about the ghost of Bianca Maria Aloisia.

From here we move to the northern part of Lunigiana to discover the mysterious stone people that inhabited the area in the Neolithic Era. We can admire two original stele statues inside the lovely Romanesque Chuch of Sorano in Filattiera, usually closed to the public. The church located along the medieval pilgrimage route Via Francigena is indeed witness of thousands of years of history, from the local prehistoric people Liguri Apuani, to the Roman settlement and later invasions until the spread of Christianity. For centuries this area has represented a worship place and seen pilgrims, armies and merchants passing by.

Dinner at a local restaurant with typical menu waiting for the night to fall.

Under the moonlight a guide-actor will lead us across the narrow and dark lanes of the ancient Piagnaro area in Pontremoli telling us the legend most beloved by locals, the tale of the werewolf.
