Founded in the 12C, Pescia nestles at the foothills of the Apennines on the road from Lucca to Pistoia.

It also hosts a Biennial Flower Show with magnificent displays of cut flowers and ornamental plants. Although not as well known for its architecture, the town has nonetheless retained several interesting medieval monuments.
