An extraordinary time travel, from Prehistory to the Baroque jewels, in this elegant town defined during Middle Ages as the “only key and door to Tuscany”. Travelling in this land means also discovering the extraordinary local cuisine and the old cooking method of the Testi (The tour is realized in collaboration with the local Slow Food).
We start our tour with a typical breakfast at a café founded in 1846 and furnished in Liberty style. Here we taste the traditional cakes called “amor” (sort of biscuits filled with custard cream), produced in this café every day for more than a century. Then, we continue with the visit of the historic center of Pontremoli with its squares, bridges and medieval tower-houses and its Magra and Verde rivers. Walking across the narrow streets and the medieval bridges we reach the Piagnaro Castle. It’s now time for a cooking show by the local Slow Food association, who will show us the traditional cooking in “testi” (cast iron pots used to cook various local recipes). Tasting of typical products will followforlunch. In the afternoon with a short walk we reach the beautiful Villa Dosi, a private mansion and a masterpiece of the Baroque of Pontremoli, today after three centuries it is possible to admire the secrets of this private mansion, frescoed rooms and gardens, which tell the style and the trend of the Pontremoli golden age.
