More info on Pontremoli
Pontremoli, named by the Emperor Frederick II “unique key and getaway to the Apennines”, boasts a fascinating history witnessed by the prehistoric stele statues, by the medieval pilgrimage route Via Francigena, by the stunning baroque frescoes that embellish churches and private mansions. Our tour Secret Pontremoli was created from the cultural initiative “Chiese e Palazzi Aperti” promoted since 2005 by the Responsible Travel Association Farfalle in cammino, that each year organizes special openings of local churches, private houses and castles, usually not accessible to the public.
