What to See and Do

Barga, like most Italian towns has its own celebrations- among which the most important are its patron saint’s day in July for which they organize the Opera Festival. The Fish and Chip festival is also greata fun,  following their love for everything English-related, and is also held in the same month lasting 10 days.

The town itself is very picturesque with narrow streets to wander, archways, century-old stone walls, and attractive little piazzas. The old part of town directs you downwards towards the  cathedral erected between the 900s and the 1300s and whose pulpit was created by the sculptor Guido Bigarelli in the 13th century.

The Tourist information office  will provide you with much more information about what is going on at a given time in the region. Tuscany Walking also organizes guided hikes for up to 12 people which leave from Barga  to the Garfagnana and the Apuane Alps.

The village of Lucignano is a recommended  place to visit during a stay in the region. It sits atop a hill between Bagni di Lucca and Barga. On the way enjoy the view of Montefegatesi and as you approach  Lucignano, you will feel as if you´re travelling back in time: narrow lanes, cobbled squares and stone walls abound.
