What a great place. A working pasta factory right in the middle of a medieval fortified town. Guided by a very friendly Luca. Give him notice of intended walking tour via email.

We've visited the pasta factory from Familia Martelli so see how handmade pasta is being produced. And we weren't disappointed. We saw almost the whole process how the pasta is being made. And it didn't even cost something. This kind of pasta should always be...More

Stopped by this wonderful little pasta factory in Lari as part of a tour. Only family members work there and they produce pasta the traditional way. Lovely visit.

The Martellis were on vacation, but we were able to buy some of their pasta up at the local store and I will be going back for more! The village is like taking a step back in time. Recommend a visit.
