Coming up at the Casino
It is great to see the wonderful casino building in Ponte a Serraglio being put to use. Here is what is coming next week.
Back in Bagni di Lucca
I have returned to beautiful Bagni di Lucca after being away for almost 4 months. I love the winter here, especially the view from my balcony in Ponte a Serraglio.
Time for a walk to see familiar things.
Spring will be here soon, I love that too.
It is good to be back in bella Bagni di Lucca.
I am currently in Brisbane, Australia and we have experienced our first seriously hot days. The temperature has been around 35 degrees coupled with high humidity, an all night storm with rain, strong wind and incredibly loud thunder.
I missed the gorgeous autumn in Bagni di Lucca so I looked at some of the photos I took in past autumns.
I will miss the lovely cold winter days with the possibility of snow…I hope there will be some when I return in late February.

A quiet river walk
There is a pretty walk beside the river in La Villa. You can enter beside Conad supermarket or below the walking bridge behind the Teatro Accademico.
A lovely way to take a quiet walk beside the river.
The weather is cool of down and autumn is finally here. There is no shortage of events coming up.
The festival in Fornoli is always fun.
One for young historians.
An exhibition will be held at the casino in Ponte a Serraglio.
You might need to go to the casino for more information on the chess event.
The living nativity is an event not to be missed.
Photos from the Montefegatesi chestnut festival
I wasn’t able to attend the recent festival in Montefegatesi, but friend Matteo Offe was there and took some great photos of what looked like a fun day. Montefegatesi has a great community spirit and it is excellent to see people come together and enjoy themselves.
Thank you Matteo for sharing a great day with us.
Coming up in Bagni di Lucca
There are some interesting things coming up in Bagni di Lucca over the next couple of weeks.
A concert at the Casino to raise money for Auser, which helps a lot of people in the community.
Plant an olive tree.
The final street market for the year.
Travelling to Florence
Florence is an easy day trip from Bagni di Lucca. There are several ways to get there. The train is convenient. It can be boarded in Fornoli. The trip takes about 25 minutes to get to Lucca, where you change trains for Florence. The more direct train takes about 1 hour 20 minutes, add 25 minutes for the train that makes more stops along the way.
You could also drive to Lucca, park beside the station and take the train. This offers more flexibility for the return journey as the return connections are not great.
I used to recommend the bus from Lucca, but it no longer goes right into the centre. The bus stops beside a tram stop which is one stop from the centre, making it slightly less convenient.
Clever Mark Hickman has found another way. There is a car park just outside the centre with a tram connection into the city. Touch the photo below for details.
PARCHEGGIO VILLA COSTANZA
Thank you Mark, I look forward to trying it.
