Val di Vara Valley

The inland of the Cinque Terre Villages and its cultural background, to be visited to understand its diversified nature, long history and unique flavors.

The Val di Vara is the largest and least populated territory of the Cinque Terre area, and offers a unique historical background. Its strategic importance is evident, and it is from the Val di Vara than many artisanal and craftmanship activities spread. A real landmark in northern Italy.

With a low density of human settlement and large spots of unspoilt nature, today the Vara Valley winds along the Vara River, on the banks of which stand ancient castles and villages, in a territory which in the Middle Ages was often disputed between Genoan wealthy families and Florence and Tuscany feuds for the control of important  routes and trading centers.

Brugnato Calice al Cornoviglio Pignone Bolano

Brugnato

Brugnato è un borgo antichissimo della Val Vara, un tempo importante centro religioso ed economico, fondato dai monaci che scendevano dall'Emilia al mare.

Calice al Cornoviglio

Il territorio di Calice al Cornoviglio è totalmente montuoso, attraversato da strette vallate e torrenti trasversali alla Val di Vara. La città di Calice sorge su una collina e la sua fortezza era contesa dalle dominazioni feudali che in alternativa dominavano l'area.

Pignone

Pignone è uno dei borghi più importanti della Valle Vara, in particolare per le sue colture biologiche di ortaggi e allevamento.

Bolano

Arroccato in una posizione strategica su una collina che domina la confluenza del fiume Vara con la Magra, Bolano offre splendide viste sulla Val di Vara, sull'Alta Lunigiana, sulla Val di Magra e su un ampio tratto di costa. Il centro storico ha mantenuto l'aspetto di un borgo fortificato medievale.
