Barga is a traditional, medieval, walled town of Longobard origin with a wealth of sites of historic and cultural interest. These include its famous "Duomo", a cathedral whose origins pre-date the year 1000. Set in the beautiful Garfagnana region of northern Tuscany, the area is characterised by chestnut woods and olive groves, but bounded by the rugged peaks of the Apennines and Apuan Alps.

There is a lively music and arts scene through Opera Barga and Barga Jazz. Barga also has its own theatre: Teatro dei Differenti. Outside the original walled town, is a more modern centre offering a further choice of cafés, restaurants and shops, as well as tennis courts, a riding centre and a swimming pool.

The Mediterranean beach resorts are just over hour's drive Lucca is 45 minutes drive away and of course Florence, Pisa and Siena are all within easy reach. The well equipped ski resort of Abetone is also just over an hour away.
