Over the course of ten plus years, we have established a long list of walks that reflect the incredible beauty and varied terrain of Lunigiana, the territory that we have made our home. Our walks cover mountains, forests, villages and farmland; are of varying lengths; and, varying degrees of difficulty. The majority, by far, are suitable for families.

The walks

  1. 9km easy circular walk from Casola in Lunigiana via Pieve San Lorenzo & Pugliano
  2. 5km easy circular walk from Turlago via the stone cross and M. Grosso (4)*
  3. 6km easy circular walk from Vedriano via Padula and Castiglioncello (4)*
  4. 5.5km easy circular walk from Reusa via Pastena, Groppolo and Vedriano (2,3)*
  5. 6.8km easy circular walk from Fivizzano via Verrucola, Pognana & the Fiacciano cascades (6)*
  6. 3.2km easy circular stroll from Verrucola via Signano and Pognana (5)*

* Numbers in brackets refer to other walks that can be combined with the featured walk to make a longer outing.

Notes on using the walks

Each walk contains a map with a downloadable GPX track, an altitude graph, the total length, the total amount of ascent and the date walked. We have included a gallery of images to highlight key elements of each walk and to reflect their scenic nature. These images are also geotagged and over-layed onto the map. The images can be removed or restored by clicking the second icon in the top righthand corner of the map. The first icon makes the map full screen, while the third icon re-centres and rescales the map.


The majority of our walks are circular in nature. Wherever possible we keep to established paths, lanes and trails. Sometimes, however, we have to make use of forest tracks to make a route work. The state of those tracks is heavily dependent on the number of years it has been since the trees were last cut within the twelve-year wood harvesting cycle. That said, we frequently revisit all the routes and annotate each walk’s description as necessary.

Please respect the environment and the landowners by parking responsibly, not dropping litter and leaving nothing other than your footprints. Our route descriptions do not signify any rights of way nor do they infer a right to park a car.
