The City of Capannori is in Tuscany
The City of Capannori is in Tuscany, in the middle of the Plain of Lucca, just only steps away from some of the most renowned and crowded tourist destinations such as Florence, the birtplace of the Renaissance, Siena and its palio, San Gimignano – the city of alabaster and a thousand towers –, Pisa and the Piazza dei Miracoli, the Cinque Terre landscapes, the nearby walled city of Lucca, together with the sea resorts of Versilia and the mountains of Garfagnana with their clean air, woods and streams of pure water. Also very close is Abetone, one of the main ski destinations of central Italy.
Capannori is a land to discover and live, where time goes by slowly, and where you can enjoy your holidays in absolute quiet, surrounded by beauty, art, nature, history, and ancient traditions kept alive by the locals.
Scattered on the hills north and south the main urban centres stand romanesque parish churches, fortified places and medieval towers, but also majestic Renaissance villas with beautiful gardens, or stone mansions surrounded by olive groves and vineyards.
It is possible to go trekking on the many paths climbing up the hills and even on part of the original Via Francigena, the pilgrim route stretching from Canterbury to Rome. On foot or by bike, you can enjoy the views, the architectural beauty of the many historical villas, and taste local produce, such as oil, wine, beans, honey and many other excellent specialties that local restaurants and agriturismi promote all year round.
Nature has been kind to Capannori and its territory, as it gives many breathtaking views, just like the ones Tuscany is so famous about all over the world. Visitors will be charmed by the vast olive groves and vineyards on the hills, the mild climate, places that echo the past times, all accompanied by excellent hospitality services, ranging from cosy B&Bs to agriturismi, from hotels to wonderful estates and luxury villas.
Capannori is the perfect land to discover and love, the ideal destination to choose as base to explore Tuscany and the area around Lucca.
