location and surroundings of object

San Moscato is at Pariana, a village in the hills about 15 kms. east of Lucca (, ). From Lucca take the main road, turning left at Collodi onto the Collodi-Bagni di Lucca road, and Pariana is on a spur off that road. Alternatively reach Collodi from the Pisa-Lucca-Firenze autostrada. The most convenient airport is Pisa, to which budget airlines fly from Stansted, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds and many other airports. It is also accessible from Bologna or Genova airports. Cars may be hired from all these - we find best thing is to compare prices on-line. There is a daily bus-service to Pariana but not very frequent. This part of Tuscany is still relatively undiscovered and in the village the rustic life goes on as it always has, with forestry and olive husbandry. The area is much more hilly than the more southerly parts of Tuscany - it is not so stiflingly hot as the plain and for walkers there is direct access to pleasant hills with the Appennines within easy reach. Tuscany north of the Lucca-Pistoia-Florence road is very different from the south, with abrupt hills and deep well-watered valleys stretching north-east to the Appennines which rise to 2000m.+ at Abetone and elsewhere. San Moscato is still very much in the foothills (500m), well within the area of olive + vine cultivation. The village, Pariana, is something of an 'eagles' nest' standing on a spur overlooking the valley which runs up from Collodi to the pass to Bagni di Lucca. Because of the plentiful water the valley bottom has long been used for paper-making and there are still some mills in operation there, though others are being converted into apartments. In the hills the traditional rural pursuits were, and still are, olive, vine and vegetable cultivation, honey, chestnuts, forestry and boar-hunting. As you might expect from such a list, the locals take their cuisine seriously and there are a couple of excellent country restaurants in the valley with a vast selection of eateries further afield between Pescia and Lucca. Wild boar (cinghiale) stewed with olives is a local delicacy, as are funghi, and figs with dried meats, and vin santo with cantucci biscuits - I could go on. In Pariana, a steep 10-minutes' walk from San Moscato, is a bakery which also sells staple foodstuffs, and there is a bigger shop at Biecina, at the junction with the main road (3 kms) and supermarkets, banks, speciality pasta shops, market etc at Collodi & Pescia, 20 mins drive away. Climate is normal Italian, with long hot sunny spells, and very pleasant in spring and autumn, but can be less settled than in the plain.
