To get to Casoli it is necessary to cross a tiny, narrow bridge. Turn right if driving from Bagni di Lucca, from the Brennero at the Casoli sign and take this cute bridge.
Houses were built around a castle at top of a hill and became the village of Casoli. Some remnants of the castle still stand.
At the beginning of the town is a monument to poet Francesco Puccini, who was also known as Geremia. He was born in Casoli in 1686.
The nearby Oratorio della Madonna all Fontana is well preserved.
The washing area beside the church is lovely.
Beside the washing area is one of the old mule tracks which entered the village.
There is a particularly interesting portal at the top of the track, dating from 1496.
Come for a walk through the village, starting at the church.
The village has quite a good looking bar near the car park.
Take a last look up at the village.
Then it is back down the narrow, winding road to the bridge.
Look out for the renovator’s delight opposite the bridge.
