We stop into Lucca on the way to Pisa. It is another walled city on the way to the western coast of Italy. You can ride around the top of the rampart and look down upon the city below on rented bicycles. But we don’t have time to do this today as we are en route to Pisa and this is meant to be a quick stop. Lucca is beautiful.
We park along a street outside the city walls and make our way into the walled city through a tunnel. We emerge onto a sleepy street and find ourselves wandering down it, unclear as to where it will lead us. As it turns out, it leads us to a tiny piazza and this is all the excuse we need to stop for a gelato and a glass of sparkling rose.
