In the area
Because of the beautiful location there is no need to travel far. If you continue to follow the road from the villa till the top you will end up at a beautiful viewpoint. Lucca centro storico is not far away , it will take you just a few minutes by car or bike. There are many bars, shops and restaurants. Of course it is worthwhile to walk around the city wall of just over 4 kilometers, but the churches and the towers which you can climb (such as the famous Torre Guinigi with its trees) and the many other old buildings are definitely worth a visit.
The famous beaches of for example Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi are within reach. The Cinque Terre and places such as Florence and Pisa are easy to get to and ideal for a day trip.
Many hiking trails are to be found in the mountains of the Alpi Apuane, but the region is really a mecca for cycling. The roads are generally fine. The many routes are solo, in groups or under supervision a true Tuscan Experience!
