I have a slight case of itchy feet at the moment, even though I spent a month in west Africa over the summer I'd still love to do another trip somewhere this year. Until thats possible I'm looking back at old pictures.
This is a bit of a photo dump really, and my camera had run out of batteries so they're mostly taken with my phone and are not the best quality.
I'd never really heard of Lucca, but we wanted to climb the leaning tower of Pisa and Lucca is close by. We spent the first day of the weekend in Pisa and got to Lucca at about 4 in the afternoon. There was a large organised run happening over the weekend which led to an already touristy town being rather packed.
We checked in to the lovely hostel we were staying in, bought food from a supermarket and had a bench picnic, then wondered around trying to find somewhere with a bit of atmosphere. Lucca is quiet after dark!
The next day, after breakfast of coffee in the most beautiful enclosed piazza, we climbed towers, walked along the fortified walls that surround the town, had amazing food at a confusing restaurant/ take away, ate fancy chocolate and wondered into huge churches that contained a mummified skeleton on display and a decorated black Jesus.
