The village of Casciana is located about 4 km from Camporgiano is a small country with caratteristiceh stone houses and the beautiful sixteenth-century church of St. Thomas the Apostle. What escapes to most people, it is the other half of the small town, not far from the church of St. Thomas. Fascinated by the streets and houses that still enclose the outside world charm, with stones and portals, and maestine scattered everywhere, we find ourselves beyond the arch that was once a portal.
Within walking distance, and here Casciana shows itself for what it was once. Houses perched in the other half of the hill, wrapped in ivy and climbing plants that the years have grown and wrap what's left of the rest of the small village. In the village center there is also a very well stocked grocery store where you can go down in a few minutes from home to shop.
From here you can organize small tours throughout the Garfagnana and visiting the many villages, one different from the other. Why not start from Vagli di Sotto, the small village became famous thanks to the beautiful lake half each year of many tourists. Accessible by car in 30 minutes to Lake Vagli is emptied every 10 years to bring out the old village which was submerged in 1946 from 34 million square meters of water to create a dam and supply the surrounding areas of water in case of fire. Strange legends are told about those who go to visit these places like the feel and music echoes from the bottom of the lake, or even strange cries ... In any case, I recommend you visit it in June 2016 and the more adventurous can also cross the suspension bridge and admire nature from a different point of view ...
Continue your walk towards increasingly Campocatino in the municipality of Vagli di Sotto to 1000m high in the Apuan Alps. It 'a beautiful expanse of green meadows at the foot of Mount Roccandagia. Since 1991 Campocatino became Oasis Lipu for numerous species of birds. Reach through the CAI path no. 147 the hermitage of San Viano from here taking in the superb views of the mountains Sella, Sumbra and Tambura.
Definitely worth a visit to the beautiful Verrucole Fortress in San Roman dating from the twelfth century and the stage of medieval representations during the month of September.
