In the afternoon, a visit to the city of Lucca nicknamed the city of a hundred churches due to the large number of religious buildings inside the walls.

At the end, dinner in a restaurant and then return to the B&B for overnight stay.

Breakfast and departure with destination Borgo a Mozzano to admire and photograph the famous Ponte del Diavolo (bridge over the river Serchio) a work of medieval engineering on whose construction many legends are linked.

The best known tells that the a mastromassone failing to finish the construction of the bridge by the date set by the contract, stipulates a pact with the devil who offers to complete the work by night in exchange for the soul of the first traveler who had crossed the bridge. Repenting of this pact made with the devil, the mastromassone confesses to a holy man who suggests him to have a pig pass through first of all. The furious devil for the deception kicked the bridge giving him the asymmetrical shape we see today and then disappear into the river. At the end a small tasting of typical Garfagnana products will be waiting for us with the possibility of buying them on the spot.

At the end visit of the park and of the Villa Reale in Marlia considered one of the most important historical residences in Italy. In the nineteenth century it was the residence of Elisa Bonaparte, Napoleon’s sister. Free lunch.
