Castelnuovo is the main town of the Garfagnana and an easy drive from Bagni di Lucca.
There is a wonderful old castle there…it was new once…I guess that is why the town is called Newcastle.
Not far from the castle in Via Nicola Fabrizi is a great shoe shop called Roberta.
The owner has tracked down some great shoes and has an excellent size range. She has shoes for all kinds of feet.
Here she is (in the blue shirt) with some happy customers.
We were there on a Sunday and the shop was packed. The owner did a great job handling the crowds scrambling to buy shoes.
We were all happy with our purchases.
I’m sure you won’t come away empty handed if you visit Roberta.
