Barga Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 66 photos

Barga is a lovely mountain town just north of Lucca. The town has not changed for probably 500 years. One of the best preserved towns in Tuscany. Lovely winding streets with lots of character. The drive up to Barga is nice, and you get to see Devil's Bridge which is a great historic landmark.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Medieval town wth few tourists, plus locals are very friendly
  • Cons:The drive up the mountain is a little out of the way
  • In a nutshell:Makes for a great adventurous day trip from Lucca or Pisa!

    It is a fascinating acqueduct but NOT Roman. It was built probably in the 16th century to take water from the town to the gardens outside the defensive wall. It starts in the corner of our garden (www.casa-fontana.com)

    You might need to carry me if we went to Barga together. I don't think they made places accessible to wheelchairs in medieval times.
