Lucca has the energy and remarkable architecture of a much smaller scale Florence.
Also home to Puccini and some unique crispy fried wafers called “brigidini.”
The story is that these were created by the nuns of St. Bridgit by mistake when they were trying to make Communion Wafers.
I think every town needs a cookie mascot. When I get home Iplan to explore this for my home town.
Another unique thing about Lucca is that it is a walled city that modernized and grew, but unlike Florence and Rome it retained it’s walls.
These walls have now become like a park that encircles the city.
Before leaving Lucca we had to stop to get refueled.
This will be my last post from Italy. I hope to explore some more topics related to my travels when I return home.
For now Ciao Bella!
