Between villages, nature and wine
With its lively landscape, the Wine Route of the Hills of Candia and Lunigiana is a corner of Tuscany to be discovered between the sea that caresses the sandy coast and the white marble Apuan Alps that rise a short distance.
From here passes the ancient Via Francigena and the whole territory is dotted with villages, castles, parishes, towers and cellars. Walking this route also means discovering typical products such as Colonnata lard, Lunigiana honey, Montignoso ham sausage, Vinca bread and herbal cake.
Obviously you can not miss the wines produced here. The Candia of the Apuan Hills is perfect with fish, the Vin Santo goes well with desserts, the Colli di Luni is ideal with soups. But the real celebrity among the wines of Lunigiana is Vermentino.
Also worth visiting are the village of Pontremoli, the avenues and watchtowers of Filattiera, the Pieve di Santo Stefano in Sorano, the “marble city” Carrara with its splendid palaces, the bridge of the devil of Mozzano, the Orrido di Botri.
