It is late May and we have had snow in the mountains around Bagni di Lucca. There have been quite heavy falls above 1,400 metres. It certainly makes for some spectacular views, with the spring growth, blue skies and snow capped mountains.
Bagni di Lucca is a beautiful part of the world.
How pretty, at least the sun is shining!
We have had 2 days of fine weather, but rain is forecast for tomorrow.
Almost June, and still snow and heating on! When will it change!!!???
I have the fire on at Vergemoli!
It is unusually cold almost everywhere in Italy. Let’s hope that warmer weather will come soon…
It will, and we will all complain about that too!

We are used to snow on the mountain tops this time of year. But didn’t expect it for Italy. Always spectacular.
It is most unusual to have snow at this time of the year. It is melting quickly.
Debra, you’ve done an outstanding job on photographing Bagni Di Lucca. Especially the beautiful shot of Il ponte del Diavolo. I was born at Pieve di Monti di Villa and these brought back many memories. I currently live in Scottsdale, Az. Keep up the good work in Bagni Di Lucca!
Thank you for your kind comments. I have photographed Pieve di Monte di Villa in a previous post. It is one of my favourite villages in Bagni di Lucca. There are dozens of photographs of the Devil’s Bridge in both my blogs. It looks so beautiful each time I pass it I am often tempted to stop and take photos.
Beautiful pictures! LOVE the up-close mountain one in the middle. It’s been unusually cold in WI this spring, too. Just finally got my garden planted about 2 weeks late.
What’s the name of that bridge in the picture about the middle? I think I was there in Oct. 2011 when I visited with my brother.
The bridge is the Ponte della Maddelena, or Devil’s Bridge. I did a post on it on 19th February 2012, you can find it in the archives.
Where is the bridge that is featured on your home page. I thought I knew Bagni well but can’t place it!
The bridge in the photo at the top of the page is the walking bridge in Ponte a Serraglio. It has been there for just a few years.
