Spring is the perfect time to visit the villages of Bagni di Lucca. I had only been to Monti di Villa once, so I thought it was time to go back. This is Monti di Villa from Granaiola…right in the middle of the photo.
Come for a walk with me through Monti di Villa. There is a car park at the base of the village and an easy path up.
There are some pretty gardens to admire.
Spring flowers were in full bloom.
The old doors always fascinate me.
There are some amazing views from Monti di Villa, even on a hazy day.
On a warm spring afternoon it is easy to fall asleep after lunch.
I walked along the ridge which is the highest part of Monti di Villa. From here you can look back across the village.
I met a friendly local who showed me a lovely green path.
She also pointed me in the direction of a lower path back to the car park. It was lined with wild flowers and covered by an oak canopy…what a gorgeous place to walk.
…and another place to admire the view.
Monti di Villa…one of the lovely villages that make up Bagni di Lucca.
