Fornoli is the first village of Bagni di Lucca you come to if you arrive from the direction of Lucca. It is a commercial centre, with lots of shops, cafes, banks etc. It is also where the train arrives in Bagni di Lucca.
The old station at Bagni di Lucca. There is a newer one now, and it has recently been renovated.
In spring and summer the tiglio trees form a lovely tunnel in the main street in Fornoli.
In early spring there is a gorgeous magnolia tree that blooms for a few precious weeks every year.
Our favourite place to eat in Fornoli is La Ruota, in the main street above a bar.
The food is great, take a look.
Tagliata is always good at La Ruota.
And the chicken.
And the ribs.
The vegetables are good too.
Who can resist sweets?
The service is brisk and friendly and the decor very pleasant, it’s great, you should try it.
