It’s snowing in Bagni di Lucca

It started snowing early this morning and it has continued all day. This doesn’t happen very often in Bagni di Lucca, so I went out walking around Ponte a Serraglio and up to Bagni Caldi to make the most of it. Come for a walk up the hill and back with me.

Some of these photos look black and white, but they aren’t. The snow became heavier as the day went on and while I was out walking a fog rolled in and the visibility became very poor.

The roads have been treacherous. The snow plough has had trouble keeping the road clear.

You don’t often see snow on palm trees.

There is not much use for these now.

This was as far up the hill as I went. I heard several trees cracking and falling under the weight of the snow, so I thought it was time to head home.

Le Torre disappeared completely from view seconds after this was taken.

It has been a beautiful day in Bagni di Lucca. Click here to see photos I took earlier in the day at Ponte a Serraglio.

If the roads become safe I will head to some of the other villages to see the snow there.

  2. It was beautiful but the roads were indeed treacherous. We tried to get Simon to the airport in Florence this morning but turned back before we got to Lucca as there was no way that we would have made his flight (or that I would have successfully driven back again!)

  3. thank you Debra, for these unaspected pictures, how beautiful,
    l’estate sembra lontanissimo, peró la primavera si avvicina, 37 giorni.
    ciao, a presto, agostino

  4. I just finished looking at the photos in Bagni di Lucca and beyond
    and this ones are even better.
    It all looks so different than it did when we where there last year
    but still so unbelievable beautiful, I can’t wait to come back again.
    Thank you for keeping me inspired.

  5. I love the feeling of the world being hushed and stilled although the sounds of falling trees would not be enchanting. I remember walking on Beachy Head cliffs in England towards the end of one summer and seeing fog literally rolling in and then it would roll out only to roll in again behind us and down below the cliffs where there was an unseen lighthouse, a fog horn sounded a doleful cry. Magic stuff. I shall pour myself into these photos on our next stifling day.

  6. Wonderful photos, glad you risked life and limb for us all to enjoy truly sensational we will be
    there late May hopefully sunshine! Keep clicking as we look forward to your regular shots so enjoyable.

  7. Debra,
    Once again beautiful photos, thank you for such a snow covered Bagni di Lucca, keep the photos coming! Springtime, the hamlet must be blomming in vivid rainbow colors. Enjoy, you are really fortunate to be living in Italy.

  8. Hi I have recently joined youre blog, wow here I am in Melbourne Australia for another week of high 30’s temperature, how good is that snow, my husband and I will visit Bagni Di Lucca for the first time this April, so looking forward to it…………………

  9. I agree with Janinevasta – some of your photos resemble the palette of Turner paintings. I love the way the village scenes change rapidly under dense snowfalls, then brighten up under bursts of clear light peeping through the clouds. Several of your pictures are visual delights – stunning red berries under snow, green foliage with their snow caps, also love your humour. Anyone for some serious snow-baking?

  10. Such fun to see all these photo’s … so differnt from my expierence in june 2012 … being the start of summer ….. such a beautiful area and hopefully I will return in the future …
