Fivizzano Vacation Rentals by Owner

Fivizzano is a walled city in the province of Massa-Carrara, Tuscany, Italy, which became part of the Republic of Florence in the 15th century. It extends from the Appenines to the Apuan Alps and is under an hour away from Massa. There are many accommodations and lodging ranging from vacation rentals to villa rentals and condo rentals to apartment rentals.

It is also known as "The Florence of Lunigiana" because of historical economic, cultural and political links with Florence. It is situated near Verrucola Castle, which was home to the artist Pietro Cascella.

The magnificently fortified hill, Verrucola, is situated between the Mommio stream and the Collegnago canal, and it dominates the route leading from the Magra River Valley to the mountain passes of the western Lunigiana and the planes of Parma and Reggio Emilia beyond. This is where the Verrucola Castle is located. The Verrucola Castle with ancient and original part of the fortification and its great tower still endowed with the stone brackets of the machicolation apparatus, the walled curtain, towers, bastions and the medieval suburb born at its feet, with the medieval bridge and two gates, is today one of the best preserved complex of the Lunigiana. It is a private property; usually visible only from the outside is now partially open, in summer to the public on Friday morning. Vacation rentals, apartment rentals, villa rentals and other holiday accommodations are widely available throughout the area.

Points of interest and main sights in and around Fivizano include the Orto Botanico dei Frignoli, a botanical garden and nature reserve; the Fivizzano Museum of Printing, located in the Palazzo Fantoni Bononi and the baroque fountain in the main piazza, donated by Cosimo de Medici III in 1683. The city walls were built under instruction from Cosimo de Medici I, Grand Duke of Tuscany, in the middle of the 16th Century. The town has many accommodation, vacation rental, condo rental, and apartment rental and villa rental options.
