Have a lie-in and wake up at your leisure (you probably went to bed late the day before) and travel towards Bagni di Lucca to explore the Serchio valley. After about 20 minutes drive you will find the Maddalena bridge on your left, like immersing yourself in a painting.
Located in Borgo a Mozzano, this particular bridge with its large round arch flanked by minor arches was built at the behest of Matilde di Canossa to connect the two banks of the Serchio between the 11th and 12th centuries and was restored at the end of the 14th century. Its unique shape has made many legends flourish and today it is better known as the Devil's Bridge. After this compulsory stop, leave Bagni di Lucca behind and continue for another 20 minutes along the road to Scesta.
The Canyon park of Scesta is the first Adventure Park in Italy that was built in a canyon and offers many different activities suitable for adults and children over the age of 10 and over 140cm tall. The main attraction is the Canyon zip line: a journey of about two hours through catwalks, Tibetan bridges, pulleys over 100 meters long and passages on rock suspended above the emerald waters of the Lima stream. But it does not end here, take part in a yoga session in the forest or rent a SUP board to paddle along the stream. We suggest you book in advance in order to make the most of your day.
After the adventure, return to Bagni di Lucca for a well-deserved rest at one of the oldest thermal complexes in the world. The extraordinary curative and regenerative power of its waters has made the Thermal Baths of Bagni di Lucca a popular destination of well-known names like Giulio Cesare, Montesquieu, Paganini, Verdi and Strauss. Today, the thermal area includes the Jean Varraud and Casa Boccella spa complexes and two natural thermal grottoes where treatments and cures are carried out in accordance with the National Health Service guidelines.
