Tuscany Day 5: Serravalle Pistoiese and around
For the next day we decided to follow the local brochures' advice and to visit our neighbourhood. As first we went to Serravalle Pistoiese, a lovely little town located on a hill, with small ruins of castle and a breathtaking view. I think we were the only tourists in that place that day - I love going on holidays off season!
To be honest, I don't know much about the ruins. It's name is Rocca Nuova (I guess) and it is still possible to climb to the tower (only if you have no fear of height). The whole town is rather small but very, very charming. It's definitely worth visiting. It was pretty dead silent that day but I imagine it awakens a bit during the season :)
In the afternoon we went to two places that I don't even remember the name of :) One of them was a little town high in the mountains. It took us a while to drive there but the views and the villages we went past by were great. In the town itself was rather nothing :) We managed to find an open bar of some sort and grabbed little pizzerinas and a cup of tea. From there we headed to see a suspension bridge. Again, I don't remember much facts about it. As I'm writing this text it's been 8 months since we were there :) I wouldn't say the bridge was impressive but it sure was very long. I guess I wouldn't visit it for the second time but maybe the surroundings had more to offer. The whole area was located deep in mountains and I imagine there were plenty possibilities to go hiking. Not for us that day though. Kids had enough.
