Make a holiday rental home or villa in Fivizzano, Italy your home away from home

Fivizzano, known as the ‘Florence of the North’, is a walled city located in the province of Massa-Carrara, in Tuscany, Italy, which extends from the Appenines to the Apuan Alps. Tourists flock to this historic city throughout the year to see its many fine monuments, and the beauty of the surrounding Tuscan landscapes.

Visiting Fivizzano gives you the opportunity to stay in a wide range of accommodation, with luxury villas, country cottages and spacious farmhouses all available. Many of these properties have been restored and refurbished, but retain their original character and fantastic locations.

Things to do in Fivizzano, Italy

There are several points of interest in Fivizzano, including the Orto Botanico dei Frignoli – a botanical garden and nature reserve, the Fivizzano Museum of Printing, and the famous city walls, which were built in the middle of the 16th Century. The many castles, churches and noble palaces of the city demonstrate the importance that Fivizzano has held over the years.

The city has a respectable selection of restaurants and bars, though many people prefer to relax outside their holiday accommodation with a glass of local wine, taking in the atmosphere and enjoying the sunshine.

The surrounding landscape offers visitors great opportunity for walking and climbing in the hills, admiring the spectacular views of valleys, olive groves and spectacular scenery as they go.

If you time your visit to Fivizzano correctly, you may arrive during one of the annual festivals. These include the September ‘Tangoworld’ festival – the largest Tango festival outside of Argentina, and the ‘Challenge of the Ground Archers and the Court Archers’ a historical archery contest which takes in the Piazza Medicea every July.

Places to visit on holiday in Fivizzano, Italy

Fivizzano has many outlying villages worth visiting, including Gragnola, Sassalbo, Monze and Vinca – all of which boast wonderful, mountainous landscapes and individual character. These are ideal if you wish to get of the tourist track and experience traditional Tuscan life.

The city is also located within 40km of the beach, and the journey south-west through the hills towards the coast is an enjoyable one.

Weather in Fivizzano, Italy

The climate in Fivizzano is ideal for visitors, especially in the summer months, when temperatures average around 27°C, making it ideal for enjoying the outdoors. Winters are mild, and temperatures rarely drop below 8°C during the daytimes. Rainfall is also relatively low for most of the year, though more common towards the end of the year.

Flights to Fivizzano, Italy

Probably the best option for getting to Fivizzano is to fly to Galileo Galilei Airport, Pisa (PSA), and then make the remaining 90-minute journey by public transport or car. A second option is to fly to Genova Airport (GOA). Pisa is the more popular option as some budget airlines fly there from the UK, and it is nearer to Fivizzano.

Amazing well equipped place - ideal outdoor area

5 of 5
The place is excellent; large and very well set out; you will need a car to get here. The kitchen is amazing, very well equipped we cooked in it every night. The island is perfect for working on your pizza dough and pizza boards great for carrying the pizza to the oven. The dresser contains a book on Italian food, we used this for cooking some excellent local dishes. The place is set up for you sitting outside and my wife and myself enjoyed most evenings in the hot tub watching the stars while waiting for the pizza ovan to finish; top tip is wait until the embers are burnt through, no flames will stop your pizza burning. The table outside the back door is perfect for the morning sun and breakfast. The covered pool, was a little chilli in May but would be perfect in the summer. There are two BBQs and a pizza oven. There is a working SMEG fridge and running water so everything you need for outdoor cooking. The hot tube is kept at 37/38 degrees is was amazing and quickly back up to temp by putting the cover on. There is a well equipped pool house with sun beds and chairs. We didn't spend much time around the pool as we went out each day but if you wanted a holiday next to the pool this is perfect. Back inside and the house is on three levels, downstairs basement has the lounge area with a bathroom and sofa bed, we didn't use this at all but would be a very cool place in the summer or cosy place in the winter. Upstairs are three great bedroom with genuine comfortable beds. The master bedroom is worth going out the doors and round the side of the house to watch the sun set and rise, a truely wonderful site over the Tuscan hills. The two other bedrooms are a great size and all come with AC which we found excellent for getting warmer or cooler very quickly. Recommend: Visit lucca - an excellent city about an hours drive away and a great place to sit and watch people or visit historical Italy without the crowds. The chica terra is close and worth a visit. Make sure you get the 10:30 boat otherwise you won't have enough time to stop and visit all five ports. Lynn and Bill are wonderful hosts and if you need anything before or during your stay just ask them. The wine they supply is very drinkable, white and red would recommend getting a few extra bottles of each from them. Downside: Only one, a long way from Florence; over two hours drive.

Fabulous apartment

5 of 5
Fabulous apartment, had everything I needed and more. Only a 10 minute walk to town and La Spezia is near to the beautiful Cinque Terre. I really enjoyed my stay here and the host was brilliant! I'd definitely recommend staying here.
