71 Days

What I did during my summer vacation…


Lucca is a walled city (the only walled city left in Italy) because it was never invaded by everyone and not hit by bombimg during WWII. Ten thousand people still live there. It is lovely and charming and we had a great day with the kids performing at a beautiful cathedral there.  

Katie found some Birkenstocks (cheaper here) and we had a great lunch in a beautiful square that was a coliseum where lions and tigers fought (not gladiators according to our guide.)

It is the home place of Pavarati and we had a tour of the town and Pav’s home — amazing what small towns produce! 

Missing my own small town a bit – but Roma and the Papal City await!
