The "Road of Oil and Wine"
Capannori is one of the main areas crossed by the Strada del Vino e dell'Olio Lucca Montecarlo Versilia, a tourist and culinary itinerary encompassing the hills of Lucca, Montecarlo, Versilia and the valley of the river Serchio.
The purpose of the Strada del Vino e dell'Olio is to promote local produce, starting from protected varieties of oil and wine, but also the unique, fascinating landscape of the area.
Within the territory of Capannori, the route goes north up the hills and the Altopiano delle Pizzorne, or south, at the foot of Monte Pisano.
The visitor will enjoy the views over olive groves, vineyards, woods and green meadows, and can take a break in one of the many agriturismi offering tasting of their own wine and oil.
The itinerary is very interesting also from a cultural point of view, as it passes near small medieval churches and imposing historical villas.
