Tuscany – Lucca

On our first visit to Lucca, the Sunday antiques market was in full swing, and we were amazed by the collection of antiquities for sale. You can climb to the top of the Torre Guinigi, where a grove of oak trees are growing. Arcaded facades and campaniles grace the numerous churches in the city.

Lucca hosts the annual Lucca Comics and Games festival, and on our second visit, we were surrounded by costumed enthusiasts, dragons, sword fighters and pavilions filled with booty. The Passeggiata delle Mura, the walk and bike way on top of the city wall, invited us to rent bicycles for a tour of the autumn leaves.
