The town of Fiumalbo is just across the border between Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. The town is particularly known in the area as lively cultural center of the Apennine and in its historic center it preserves numerous examples of medieval mountain architecture. The village is made up of narrow stone pavements, old churches and palaces with frescoed rooms. Interestingly worth visiting is also the Museum of Sacred Art housed in the Church of St. Catherine built in the 17th century.
Fiumalbo’s position, between the two regions, makes it an ideal starting point for many excursions both in summer and winter. Although it does not have its own ski slopes, it is very close to the ski area of Abetone, which allows skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing. During the summer season, however, it becomes the final destination of several excursions headed first on the top of the mountains and then in its historic center.
