CAMAIORE

Nestled at the heart of the lovely and historical Versilia, and surrounded by a variety of landscapes and sceneries ranging from the Apuan Alps, through the quaint hilltop villages to the beaches of Lido di Camaiore, lies the beautiful Camaiore. The town, arranged in a neat grid plan, is a major tourist destination teeming with architectural splendour, such as the beautiful Collegiate Church and the ancient Benedictine monastery, as well as with ancient customs and traditions, such as the sawdust carpets and the oil-lamp procession commemorating the death of Jesus (‘luminara di Gesù’). The town bursts into life especially in the summertime, with a wealth of attractions drawing visitors, tourists and sports enthusiasts. The Palio takes place in June and in July, with the six town’s districts challenging each other in a set of athletic competitions. Camaiore is also known to sports and cycling enthusiasts for the historical “Gran Premio Città di Camaiore”, which was raced from 1949 to 2014, while in recent years it has become a permanent feature of the Tirreno-Adriatico route.

 

CHIUSDINO

Chiusdino is a beautiful mediaeval village nestled among the Colline Metallifere, the Montagnola Senese and the Val di Farma. Probably founded by the Lombards, Chiusdino has retained its ancient charm, especially in the age-old district called ‘Portino’, surrounded by the remains of an earlier double line of defensive walls. The town has a valuable mediaeval heritage, including the house that is said to have been the birthplace of Saint Galgano in the 12th century. The nearby Cistercian monastery, now roofless and in ruins, founded to honour the saint, is one of the earliest examples of Romanesque and Gothic-Cistercian architecture in Italy. Together with the Eremo di Montesiepi, it makes up one of the major religious and monumental complexes of the Siena area.
