  1. Thank you, Debra. There is also a Beer Festival to help the Italian Red Cross to be held at the park next to Villa Fiore as from the 12th to the 16th of June.

    • Go to La Villa, the administrative centre of Bagni di Lucca. Look for Via Evangelina Whipple, go past the swimming pool and you will find Villa Ada. Park you car in the village and walk up, it is not far. Have a look at the Turismo Bagni di Lucca site for more events. There is a link on the right of the blog.

  2. Thank you for the wonderful photos of the costumed folks! I am an American medieval reenactor with the Society for Creative Anachronism, and I really appreciate seeing people reenact their culture on its native soil, so to speak! πŸ™‚
