COME TO LUCCA
There is no place more wonderful than the walled city of Lucca, yet so few people really explore Lucca in any great detail. I hope these pics whet your appetite for a Lucchese adventure. If you have visited the city, these photos will help you recall what I am sure are some wonderful moments. If Lucca is new to you, I hope these photos will inspire you to put it on your bucket list and venture there. These first two pics were taken in the anfiteatro.
San Michele is one of Lucca’s main churches and many think it’s the most stunning. When you visit the city note the animal details, many of which will surprise, perhaps even shock, you.
Where else but Lucca will you find trees growing out of a large tower. The Torre Guingi is such a place and these two photos beckon you to climb to the top.
San Martino is Lucca’s cathedral and where the magnificient Volto Santo is housed.
Perhaps nothing defines Lucca more than it’s walls. The five hundred year old structures took over 100 years to build and are the only fully intact walls left in all of Italy. This last group of pictures depict the walls and three sensational views from on top and underneath the stone structure.
Next week we’ll continue this pictorial tour of the walled city.
Until then, ciao amici,
