Just along from us is Colognora (where they shoot movies when a typical Italian village is needed) and the Celle di Puccini (where the composer's mom lived and so did he for a while)<BR><BR>A bit north is the beautiful hill top town of Barga with it's old city and monumental church with 360 degree views. There are lots of good restaurants nearby; specialist shops, a bank and a few supermarkets.<BR><BR>Sports wise there is golf, tennis, fishing, and so on.
