Licciana Nardi is a town in the Taverone valley with 13th century pedestrian street flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. The castle is linked to the baroque church by a covered bridge so that the nobles had direct access to prayer and dealings with the local priest. There are also a bank, schools, shops, restaurants, coffee bars and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and also offers a good selection of amenities. Buses run regularly from Aulla to Licciana Nardi.
Lunigiana is a magical place to live and visit. While it remains a comparatively undiscovered and unspoilt part of Tuscany, it is neither isolated nor remote. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hour away. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre (UNESCO World Heritage site) are ideal for swimming and sailing. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all within an hours drive.
Distances: Aulla (autostrada and train station) 10 km, Lerici (beaches) 30 km, Cinque Terre 40 km, Lucca 80 km, Pisa (airport) 90 km, Florence 100 km.
