A dream place for skiing fans. To reach this paradise head along the SS12 northeast when you leave the Garfagnana. This route, once you´ve entered the province of Pistoia, is extremely colourful and attractive. On the way you will find San Cassiano which features a fantastic church dating back to the 12th century. Then, a little further along, Lucchio, which is magnificently located on the northeast slope and offers stunning views.
Abetone (www.abetone.com/en) boasts the most important ski slopes in Tuscany and transforms into a great place for hiking in the summer.
