Lucca Countryside

The Tuscan landscape is loved because of its charming villages, which are set amidst the hills around Lucca and the many cultivated fields, olive groves and vineyards. Pieve di Compito is one of these villages, which lies in the “compitese”-area, on the raod which connects Lucca with Pontedera. Ideal spot to make excursions to the nearby art cities such as Pisa, Florence, Siena or Volterra.

The surroundings of Lucca offer their tourists a big spectrum of possibilities how to spend your holidays: beautiful strolls on the close hills, visits to the art towns of Tuscany, tasting of typical local products such as olive oil and wine, cultural and musical events, festivals in villages and craftsmen markets which take place during the whole year.

Driving along the road leading from Lucca to Pisa you will notice a beautiful landscape covered with fields and olive groves and the rocky line of hills in the background.

Just outside of Lucca, traversing the bridge over river Serchio, you will arrive in the village of S. Alessio in the midst of the “Lucchesi campagna”. S. Alessio is surrounded by maize fields, vineyards and in the background there is a gentle line of rolling hills, an ideal location for a tranquil, relaxing holiday in contact with nature. While driving through the middle part of the Serchio Valley you will discover the hills of the “Brancoleria” with its scattered antique Roman churches.

Coming from Lucca, after 10 km you will reach the village of Ponte a Moriano, which lies in the middle of the Serchio valley. It is a picturesque landscape, surrounded by bare mountains, smooth hills covered with silver shining olive groves, wine yards and dense woods. There are many little lakes and rivers to be discovered by them who love to go fishing - nature freaks could go for a walk or make trekking tours

The Garfagnana and the wonderful valley of Pescaglia are repudiated to be one of the most beautiful areas of the Lucchesia considering the panoramic position. Here you will find many little hamlets such as Piegaio Alto, Colognora or Vetriano, the latter has a medieval tower and the smallest theatre of the world, only 55 sqm, named by the musician Alfredo Catalani.

Chiatri is a very charming, small village set in the gentle green hills separating Lucca and the Mediterranean Sea. Chiatri was the summer residence of the famous composer Giacomo Puccini. The musician fell in love with this unique setting and wrote: “The panorama of Chiatri is truly enchanting offering views down the hillside to the coast from Livorno to La Spezia, from Arno river to Serchio river, on clear days you can get a glimpse of Corsica, the islands of Gorgona and Capraia, the Park of San Rossore and Migliarino”. From Chiatri it is only a 20 min. drive to Lucca, and the beautiful Versilia beaches with the famous holiday resorts and the attractive nightlife are within an easy reach.

The village of Valpromaro lies on the road which is connecting Lucca with the beautiful beaches of the Versilia coast. At this coast you will discover the famous shopping mile and the mondaine clubs.
