The town of Pieve Fosciana bases its history and future in agriculture. Your walks through the town, or "parish" (pieve = parish), will take you above sea level and past cobblestone structures, all steeped in personal history. The opportunity to explore this medieval village is not to be missed. Choosing a place to lay your head after your day of hiking may seem daunting, but remember, your vacation is about you. The hotel you select to come "home" to after a long day should be tailored to your own personal expectations and desires. Make the best of your trip!
After a long day of sightseeing throughout the Italian countryside, rejuvenate your long-walked (or bicycle-pumped) legs at the Villa Belvedere. Soak in the outdoor pool and relax in the all non-smoking rooms. Nestled in the Lucca province, the Villa Belvedere room rates start in the low 100s per person, per night.
