Just past Fornoli on the road towards Barga is a small garden plot where you can buy produce directly from the grower. It doesn’t come much fresher than that!
I called in recently and bought some zucchini flowers and tropea onions…delicious.
Don’t drive past! Support a local business.
The beautiful public pool is open in La Villa. It is in the grounds of Villa Ada. The entrance is in Via Evangelina Whipple.
There are 3 pools.
The diving pool.
The shallow pool for young children.
The setting is lovely.
There is a cafe if you get hungry.
The pool is open from 9.00am until 7.00pm.
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.

Look on Facebook…Jungle wear
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.
