The Apuane Alps emerge from the Versilia Riviera on one side and the Garfagnana Valley on the other side. These lofty mountains, whose highest summit is the Monte Pisanino (almost 2,000 m high), have an endless number of marked trails to enjoy with breathtaking views of the coastline. The trail maps found in the Massa and Carrara tourist information offices and the Edizione Multigraphic of Florence can give you specific information about each of these routes.
A vast underground area of naturally-formed caves, chasms, and natural spas makes an interesting and luxurious visit. Seravezza, where marble extraction has been carried out for over 5 centuries, provides access to the “Parco Regionale delle Alpi Apuane”, a natural and stunning park. An enchanting road following the Vezza Valley as far as Stazzema, a colourful little village, is a great one to explore.
