There is also the communal pool, which is open only in summer, but is greatly popular amongst the people of Barga, and it's visitors.

The town hosts an annual international opera festival and also a jazz festival.There are regular summer concerts in the Piazzas of Barga

An hours drive west will take you both to the beaches of the Ligurian sea in the summer and the ski slopes of Abetone in winter.
