Italy part sei. Lucca
Today was a busy busy day, already we have been up a mountain, walked the streets of a hillside mountain village and now we are trudging around the beautiful city of Lucca.
To read more about Lucca click here. It was lovely here and boy the folks must be absolutely minted to live there, the place itself is valued as priceless.
There are lots of windy little streets, churches, gorgeous old buildings and shops. I think we must of looked at every home furnishing and cookery shop, as Karen and Ste were looking for things for their new house. I just daydreamed about one day being able to get stuff for a house. If you are a fan of antiques then this was the place to be, antique shops galore and lots of open air vendors with some really (really) nice things, from humongous bronze eagles to ornate fireplaces (loads of wonga though).
It wasn't hard at all to take nice photographs here but i am rather pleased with how these and all the photos i have taken turned out. So so pleased i have a digital camera and am able to share my trip with you.
Tiredness eventually kicked in and we headed back towards the B&B for some grub and a kip.
Only two instalments left of my wee trip to Italy ! Grotto del vento (caves of wind) and Barga.
