Lucca, the secret town in Tuscany



Hi again! 

 You may remember that on my last post I said that it was rainy in Florence. During our last day in Florence, it was  raining cats and dogs so we went quickly to an underground near and found this by surprise,  a different world full of Colours :)

Florence underground passageway




The weather was not looking good so we got into the car and continue our road trip, we went pass a town in  Tuscany called Lucca. I have read about it before and we decided to stop to explore it as the weather was improving and was not raining there.

Lucca, the secret town in Tuscany

   It is called "the secret town" beacuse it is hidden into masive thick 16th century walls that go around the complete town, Lucca is almost a perfectly preserved jewel of  mediaeval and Renaissance architecture, you can walk or bike the narrow streets with its antique markets, churches and cathedrals and this town has not lost its old fashioned charm through the years.

Arriving to Lucca we found a carousel just before the door to get into the town


 
                                   
 Here you can see the walls and door to come into Lucca:

Just behind this well perserved walls is Lucca
Lucca is surrounded by 4 levels of rings of walls; the most external extension of the walls is more than 4km long imposing embakment planted with trees.


Door to Lucca

Piazza Napoleone
We hired a bicycle to get easier to every place but Lucca is not very big, you can also explore it by foot


Church of San Michele






Lucca will make a great setting for a film based in the 16th century.

I really like the narrow streets and tall building fronts. Also, that is a lot of graffiti in the first few shots.

That town is so cool! I would love to visit there. I have never heard of it. But everything from the architecture to the colors to the quaintness of it all is so beautiful. And the walls seem interesting too - I bet there's a great story behind them.

Florence Underground Passageway is so cool. I love the old churches, they are rich in history. You look so cute in this picture riding the bicycle. This is such a beautiful place, and Jess loved Florence too when she visited years ago.

Thank you for your thoughts and comment on Paris today, my friend.
