Vespatour 2006 Part 6: Lucca

LuccaLucca is a town of magic!

On august 10, 2006, when I visited it for the first time, fifth stop of my solo-journey around Italy I called Vespatour, I immediately felt at ease, almost safe, protected by the 4 Km long wall surrounding the town since centuries.

I discovered it thanks to the visit with an audioguide: the walk upon the walls, the towers with the roof-gardens, the churches, the oval square, the historical locals, the elegant San Frediano hostel, the delicious Tuscan slang and a detail representing the style and harmony of this italian jewel: the manholes shaped like the walls perimeter! 😀

I think I could live there and I’ll get back to Lucca for sure to be able to see it from the top of the Guinigi Tower, something I wasn’t able to do.

I hope the photos of the sixth gallery of the Vespatour will give you back some of Lucca’s magic. 😉

Enjoy the photos!
