Everybody in Lungiana has spent at least a few hours at Campocecina. Thirty minutes far from Carrara, in the heart of the Apuan Alps Park, Campocecina is a beloved destination for a daily trip to the country, one of Italians’ favorite Easter or Mayday diversions.
Campocecina is above all the site where many hiking trails begin or end: the CAI Carrara Hut [Rifugio Carrara] is the starting point of the easy Trail 173 that crosses a beautiful green field and continues with a pleasant walk through a beech wood up toward the Monte Borla. It takes around two hours from the same lodge to get to the Monte Sagro: the Alpin landscape is projected into the Tyrrhenian Sea, the fields are spectacular during Spring – when the rare Centaurea Montis Borlae blossoms – and the beech wood is enchanting in Autumn. To this end, the Monte Berlino ring is the perfect trail – easy enough for children as well – to get to know the autochthon flora and wildlife.
At the foot of Monte Sagro – 1300 metres above sea level – the Campocecina meadows are a beloved destinations for day hikes and pic-nics. The view over the quarry and the Carrara valley is breath-taking.
