  • Lake Fishing Lucca

    In the upper area of the district of Lucca there are breathtaking natural areas where you can go fishing. You sure to be able to fish here, even in the hottest summer, as this is one of the most rainy provinces in Tuscany.

    There are two options
    1. Lago di Massacciuccoli is not famous only for the composer Giacomo Puccini who lived nearby and frequently hunted around the lake; the nearby village of Torre del Lago is sometimes mentioned with suffix "Puccini" in his honour. During spring and summer the lake is the ideal place to go fishing, rowing, canoing and sailing.

    2. River fishing in the Serchio. The natural basin created by Serchio, the river that crosses Garfagnana from north to south, from Sillano to a location beyond Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, is another place where to go fly fishing; from here it continues through the Media Valle touching the municipal borders of the Comune of Barga and crossing the territory of Borgo a Mozzano.
