Lucca, Italy

Schon and Lovely

I did not anything about the Italian city Lucca. A German friend recommended the ancient Tuscany settlement calling it “Schon” meaning “Lovely”. Located thirty minutes from both Pisa and the beach by train, Lucca for any traveler would be a great stop off point to explore the region.

What struck me about the walled city were the picturesque settings of squares, narrow streets and towers. Strolling around looking up, forward, back or around there is a scene or architectural style ready for a photo. Blessed with many cafes and restaurants with authentic atmosphere, the morning cafe or dinner options are numerous.

Staying in Lucca for one day was not enough, next time, more.
