Ready to explore the lesser-known side of Tuscany? The sceneries you are going to walk through are not your typical picture-perfect rolling hills and cypress-dotted fields.
You start form Pontremoli, in the heart of Lunigiana - the land of moon, of mysterious "Statue Stele" - a green territory dotted with evocatory castles, to then descend towards the sea of Versilia.
Here you can walk for hours on the sandy beaches, stop to bath in the sun or in the salty water, enjoy the sea breeze - especially in Spring, when the sun is not so ferocious and the light wind tickles your skin under the hiking clothes.
You can visit the artists' ateliers in Pietrasanta, the Italian Athene, resting at the foot of the Apuan Alps - the most famous marble in the world is extracted nearby - and finally reach Lucca, guarding one of the most fascinating old town centres of Italy within its reinassance walls.
