Lovely Lucca / by Michelle Linden




C & I had an extra day while we were in Cinque Terre, so we decided to make a day trip to Pisa and Lucca. I really didn't care for Pisa... but Lucca was absolutely lovely. The city is surrounded by a medieval wall that was later reinforced with a second renaissance era wall. The space between the two walls was filled with earth to further protect the city from canons. Years later Napoleon gave the city to his sister who planted trees on top of the wall, making it into one of the loveliest parks I've ever been to...
