At Centrale we changed to get the train to Lucca.
Why Lucca you ask? Well my holiday last year was at Cheryl's urging and it was to Lucca. Alas Cheryl had to pull out without a hotel being booked but I had flights and so went to Florence. But I had liked the look of Lucca and so I thought I ought to visit the place that had caused by European oddysey....
Any we were on the train. We arrived in Lucca and quickly found our hotel (the San Lucca Palace - recommended) dumped bags, grabbed a camera and headed out.....
It was warm buy grey and cloudy, which was actually a result as the forecast was for rain (which it had done earlier!).
I love the Italian food shops
The church of San Michele in Foro
Street musician. There was a variety in the same spot.
Obviously news that Trish was here.....
This is where the Puccini festival concerts were normally housed. The church was being restored and they were around the corner in another building.
The back of the church where the concerts are normally housed
lots of these
I love the high buildings
An ice cream parlour where you built your own.
Someone being tempted....
After a shower we headed out on the town....
Oh this was in the hotel.
a bit of sun finally!
Dining al fresco
We ate at the Giglio, nice meal with decent wine.
