Parco del Battiferro

It is located near the Village of Vergemoli too, not far from Parco del Levigliese.

There is also the chance to explore old iron mines and to use a completely rebuilt cable way.

Canyon park

A great outdoor experience is the Canyon Park: it is an aerial route, consisting of metal cable ways and tibetan bridges, located in one of the narrowest and less accessible parts of the Lima creek valley, just near the village of Bagni di Lucca.

Visitors can also swim and dive into the creek or try the paddle board experience.
