Versilia for foodies

Northern Tuscany has plenty of foody treats from the sea and the land. You will certainly enjoy meeting the Triglia family working from generations in its ham factory in Gombitelli . This family run company, in the cosy frame of their food shop, will open the doors to show you the taste and aromas of their artisanal products. A walk around the ’700 village will allow you get a shot of the panorama of Lucca on one side and the Tyrrhenian sea on the other side. On our way we will stop at another farm producing extra virgin olive oil and learn about the making of this local product. Not only this farm was formerly owned by Maria Teresa, Duchess of Lucca, but it has a perfectly preserved olive oil mill, which will allow you to learn about the different methods of production of this ancient product.

Alternatively, we can visit a honey factory or wine cellars.

The tradition of pink lard and sausages in Gombitelli

This tiny village on the hills of Camaiore has become famous to many gourmet and foodies for its production of sausages, ham and a particular pick lard, which is different from the Colonnata white one. There are two ham factories here selling around Italy and abroad, which sounds amazing compared to the number of ihabitants and houses in the village. Gombitelli is the proof that love for tradition and family run companies can last over centuries.
