Lucca is enclosed by Renaissance walls and the cobbled streets are beautiful and quaint filled with shoppes and restaurants. Knowing I needed to carry whatever we purchased, I left without spending one euro excluding food or beverage. Amazing! The best part of our stay was dining in the Piazza Anfiteatro while listening to a free jazz concert. At least this concert began at 9:30. In Bologna, their summer movie series did not begin until 10:30 which was way too late for our first night.
I decided to walk the wall which was less than three miles and found it peaceful and invigorating at the same time. Such beauty everywhere you look. As soon as I got back, we headed back out to roam the streets and find a place to eat. These pictures are from our time in Lucca...
