A couple of years ago, we spent a week in Barga with two Australian friends. We rented a lovely house near the top of the village just under the Romanesque Duomo which entertained us with its unusual bell ringing. Thankfully, the ‘key’ to these mystery sequences was given to us by our wonderful landlord, Frank.
Barga is a medievale town in the Lucca province of Italy, and perfectly placed to use as a base to explore the delights of various famous Tuscan towns. It was a great example of what I consider a perfect hilltop town with buildings of crumbling character, lots of narrow laneways, cafes and restaurants, but nothing too touristy.
