Set on the hills of Podenzana with numerous restaurants serving the local traditional fare. The larger town of Aulla is just a few minutes drive. Podenzana is a series of villages strung along the hill above the town of Aulla and stretching to the other side down towards Ceparana. Podenzana is famous for panigacci and there are numerous restaurants offering this speciality. A crisp thick pancake cooked in terracotta dishes over the embers of the fire and served in baskets with cream cheese and a tray of assorted salami and ham from Parma. Sandwich them together, eat with your fingers sipping the local red wine. Delicious.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The hills that encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are extremely inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. 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.
