Pescia is one of the eldest towns in Valdinievole. It owes its name to the river that flows through it, dividing it into two separate district. Pescia is testimony to an immense artistic heritage and noble past: it is nestled in a valley surrounded by gentle hills mantled with olive groves and chestnut woods, known as “Pesciatina Swiss”. It's a virgin landscape, the ideal setting for excursions which will unveil real treasures and jewels still unknown to mass tourism.
A stone's throw from Pescia you will find Collodi, a characteristic hamlet with its maze of old houses clinging to the hillside in a cascade and Pinocchio's homeland, and Villa Garzoni with its baroque gardens, one of the most important villas in Tuscany. The most ancient part of Pescia develops around the Palagio del Podestà, which today accommodates the “Libero Andreotti”Gypsum Artwork Gallery and its fascinating array of gypsum works realized by the great master from Pescia. In its neighborhood soars the Church of Saints Stefano and Niccolao, famous for its baroque staircase, anche the Municipal Museum, which exhibits works by the workshop of Beato Angelico, Lorenzo Monaco, Bicci di Lorenzo and Neri di Bicci, as well as items in terracotta produced by the Della Robbia workshop. A web of tiny roads in this area create a labyrinth to lose yourself in for glimpses of the ancient bulwark walls or to depart for the nearby hills. In the background, the imposing structure of the former Bareglia Fortress still watching over town below and offering breathtaking views.
