Judith and I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Corsica. We decided to drive there from our home here in Evolène, taking a daytime ferry from Livorno to Bastia. It’s quite a long drive, so we stopped over in Lucca for a couple of nights* in order to explore just a little bit of Tuscany. Apart from a long and interesting history, Lucca has the most amazing Walls. They are several metres high and very, very wide (see pic 6) allowing cyclists, dog walkers, joggers and tourists alike to do all, or just part, of the 4.9km/3 mile circumnavigation.
*We stayed at the wonderful Agriturismo Ai Linchi, which is just a few kilometres out of the town. So the first few photos below are of our evening walk to the local church when we arrived. We certainly needed to work up an appetite, as the evening meal served up by Andrea was simply amazing. 😋
