What to See and Do

The Garfagnana valley offers endless activities for active types such as horse riding, trekking and mountain biking. The mountains are not at all short of options. You can contact Apians in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana for organized canyoning, climbing, speleology, mountaineering and mountain bike excursions. La Vie della Cantera has excellent bike trails. There are itineraries as short as 18km and others for experienced cyclsts as long as 231km.

As you near the Garfagnana area driving along the SS12, you will be amazed by the Devil’s Bridge or Ponto della Maddalena or Ponto del Diavolo. This bridge dating back to the Middle Ages was constructed with arches of all differnt sizes. The result resembles a monster emerging from the water rather than a bridge.
