Barga, in the province of Lucca, is a magical place like the many surrounding towns in the area. If you want to discover a rare pearl during your trip in Tuscany then this is the place to visit.
Its history is connected to the Poet Giovanni Pascoli that lived and wrote some of his most famous poetic verses, but it also goes back in time to many centuries ago, a past deeply reflected in the beauty and charm of its Medieval Borough.

Along the narrow streets and lanes of the borough, in the typical bars and restaurants, during many events that characterise the summer months, in the beautiful surrounding villages you can find many ways to spend enjoyable hours and days of total pleasure. Here you can forget your problems and emerge yourself in an endless time of sounds, scents, colours and welcoming warmth of the town
