Svizzera Pesciatina: A sliver of Switzerland in Pistoia

Did you know that you can visit Switzerland without leaving Pistoia? All you need to do is to make your way to Valleriana, an area north of Pescia and high up in the Pistoia Mountains. Valleriana was dubbed Svizzera Pesciatina, the Switzerland of Pescia, by the Swiss historian Jean Charles Leonard Simonde de Sismondi, who spent the rest of his life there. Valleriana has charming hamlets where you can admire Romanesque architecture, savor regional cuisine, and drink in the mountain views. Valleriana is a popular ski destination, so expect Pistoia vacation rentals there to be busy in winter.

Don't sweat it under the Tuscan sun

Pistoia experiences 4 seasons: springtime lasts from March to May, summer from June to August, fall from September to November, and winter from December to February. The province's climate is generally mild. However, because it's located inland and bordered by mountains, it can get hot and humid in summer, with temperatures peaking at 91 degrees. Constant rainfall can make winter in Pistoia chilly, with temperatures dipping to 35 degrees. If you want to see Pistoia at its best, head there in spring, when its famous flower nurseries bloom with color.

Dip your fingers and toes in "The Breadbasket of Rome"

As a province of Tuscany, Pistoia belongs to the region referred to in Roman times as the breadbasket of Rome. Pistoia is mostly hilly and its plains are limited, but the land is rich enough to support a strong agricultural base. The cities of Pistoia and Pescia in particular are known for their flower nurseries. The rivers Nievole and Pescia flow through the province; they converge in a marshland called Padule di Fucecchio, a sanctuary for migrating birds. The Pistoia Mountains, a portion of the Apennine mountain range, looms large over the province.
