The Levigliese Park is located in the heart of the Garfagnana, surrounded by the splendid backdrop of the Apuan Alps and spread along a stretch of the Leventina Torrent. The Park's characteristic is to have made it accessible to the public, but also to have created sport and adventure activities, an area completely immersed in the green without modifying in any way the nature itself and indeed taking advantage of the natural features that the environment offers.
The park provides the opportunity to perform different activities depending on whether you want to spend a day of relaxation, culture or adrenaline.

On the road, for lovers of racing bikes or on mountain bikes for those who prefer to get away from traffic and immerse them in nature. In every Tuscan location you will find routes rich in places of interest and breathtaking views. The territory of Tuscany is mainly hilly.

A corner of natural paradise. The thousand-year-old grotto, marvelous and intact, enclosed in the carbonate rocks extends for over two hundred meters in the subsoil. At the bottom of the cavity lies a crystalline mirror of warm thermal waters, which give off a beneficial and therapeutic vapor. Here you can see a unique show in Italy.
The spectacular outdoor thermal pool, a high-tech technological plant with a 750-square-meter water mirror, offers a spectacular waterfall and underwater hydro-massages with thermal water at 35 ° C, permanently fed by bicarbonate thermal water, sulphate, calcium, magnesia at 35 ° C.

Entering the Asmana world is like opening the door to feeling good. An oasis of peace immersed in the Tuscan countryside. This is a place where the world of water merges with that of saunas and where, thanks to beauty treatments and sensory ceremonies, body and mind will be gently regenerated and restored to their natural balance. The pleasure of a cocktail sipped in the pool bar or the possibility of indulging even the pleasures of the palate make the Asmana world the ideal space in which to find one's psychophysical balance.
A charming environment, where you can spend a few hours or the whole day, but not only ... in the light of the moon and the sound of the Tibetan bells, the pools become an enchanted place and the vapors of the saunas blend with the colors of the night.
Cycling in Tuscany
If you have little time available for a walking tour through the historic city center, the main places not to be missed are:
Sotterraneo (Underground) Pistoia. Underground Pistoia. A secret passage, a walk that not everyone knows, an excursion that I highly recommend you do when you are in the area. To understand a city & agrave; we must go back over the years and study its origins. The Museo Pistoia Sotterranea begins with a visit to the most anatomical amphitheater; small in the world. Here once, ten students attended medicine and surgery classes (lower than the doctor's degree) analyzing a body, placed in the center of the room, with their professor.
