PASTA FACTORY, MEDIEVAL CASTLE AND OLIVE OIL TASTING
Location: Tuscan hills, LARI AND CASCIANA TERME
HE SMALLEST PASTA FACTORY IN THE WORLD?
Whether the pasta workshop of the family Martelli is the smallest in the world or not is difficult to say. It is definitely the most original! Our exciting tour to Lari, the Hamlet of Wonders, starts with a visit to an artisanal pasta factory where spaghetti and penne are made in the "old way". Our guide introduces you to the history of the family-run company and explains how a small artisanal production is able to reach the markets of all the world. The visit continues with an extremely interesting walk through the working rooms, from the giant bags of flour to the yellow packages, ready for shipping.
THE MEDIEVAL CASTLE OF THE VICARS
Why are castles often on hilltops? Why are they built that way? What were they used for through the centuries? Why are their dungeons so gloomy? If you want to know the answers to these questions and you want them while admiring the enchanting view from a perfectly preserved century-old castle, the castle of the vicars in Lari is the right place to go! You can personally experience how the prisoners could feel when they were locked in the "inferno" dungeon.
