Toscana, Garfagnana. Thrilling motorbike weekend full of marble, Colonnata lard and good food
Albergo Belvedere – Passo dei Carpinelli (LU)
Pleasant family-run property located in panoramic area at Passo dei Carpinelli, 840 meters above sea level. The Passo connects the Garfagnana with Lunigiana, which in turn is an open door to Liguria and the beautiful Cinque Terre.
The spacious and modern rooms come with telephone, satellite TV, WiFi internet and facilities. Some rooms have balconies.
Authentic flagship of the structure is the excellent restaurant, which offers the true cuisine of the territory, with the delicate but decided flavors of a valley that, like every border land, has ended up creating its own gastronomic tradition. Traditional garfagnina cuisine is a frugal, simple, sometimes poor food because few were the basic ingredients: farro, formenton flour, chestnut, red beans, trout, fruit of the forest; but the fanciful originality of the masses allowed and still allows those who have made use of these ancient recipes, the creation of extraordinary dishes such as Farro’s Soup, Farro or Ravioli with Porcini Mushrooms, Grilled Lamb and Baked veal thigh, farro cake, berries pies.
