Here is a list of events in Bagni di Lucca for June and July. The order is a bit out, but this is how I found it.
For more information …..
On 1st June there will be a concert to celebrate Republic Day. If it rains it will move from the piazza off Via Umberto I to the Teatro Accademico nearby.
This event in Fornoli is great fun. I hope it is a fine day. In case of rain it will move to the following Sunday.
Jungle is an excellent clothing shop for children from 0-16 in La Villa, at 89 Viale Umberto I.
It is well stocked with wearable items and gifts for boys and girls.
Drop in and say hello to Susanna and support a local small business.

Today is the day of the Gran Tour del Pratofiorito.
The rain didn’t put the riders off.
Here they are coming through Ponte a Serraglio.
Rosi captured them further up towards Prato Fiorito.
There is always something happening in Bagni di Lucca.
Apart from making everything grow and look gorgeous, rain has other benefits.
There is plenty of water in the river for the rafters.
If we could just organise the rain to fall between midnight and 4.00am a couple of nights a week it would be excellent.
One of our favourite restaurants in the area was Cappuccetto Rosso. We were not happy when they told us they were closing. They assured us they would reopen in a new location.
The new restaurant has opened in the historical centre of Barga. It is called Ristorante Piazzangelio, named after the Piazza where it is located.
The interior is elegant and inviting. (Valentina’s photo)
Lovely Valentina looked after us just as well as she did at the previous restaurant.
The food is excellent. We ordered shared plates of prosciutto and mozzarella with a delicious mint sauce.
The fish of the day was Branzino, Sea Bass. They had an enormous one, big enough for our party of 5.
Our desserts were great.
This was the winner.
We wish Valentina and Alfonso and the team the very best for their new venture.
Here is a photo of the official opening. Barga is lucky to have them.
