Vagli Garfagnana Lucca

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

We went for a drive out yesterday up into the Apuane Alps about 45 mins away from tuscanrooms and found Lago di Vagli.

In the foothills of the Apuane Alps and close to the Cave Di Marmo ( Marble Caves) this beautiful lakeside village was well worth the trip.


A day on the Strada del Vino

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

One of our favourite places to go when there is blue skies and sunshine is the Strada del Vino which is only 20 mins away from tuscanrooms and has stunning views across Lucca and the hills beyond. On a clear day like today you can see the sea.

The Strada del Vino is the Lucca wine region and has many fantastic villas with gardens open to the public, vinyards that do tasting and tours and of course bars,Osteria and restaurants to taste the local produce.
