THE LIMA RIVER, A TOP DESTINATION FOR WATER SPORTS IN TUSCANY
The Lima river (or just ‘The Lima’ as we locals call it) begins in the Sestaione valley in the Apennines, between Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. Flowing down the mountains, over time it has carved a stunning landscape – including strikingly beautiful canyons.
The river crosses the town of Bagni di Lucca Terme and flows into the Serchio, another river with its source in the Apennines, which runs through nearby Garfagnana and across most of the province of Lucca. The river is an important element of the area’s history, environment and way of life.
