Roberto and his lovely assistant Giuliana.

The Corona Hotel in Ponte a Serraglio has a great position beside the river with views across the Lima River. If you are there when the weather is warm, the outdoor terrace is open for meals. They get some very good reviews on Trip Advisor, where the terrace is often mentioned, as well as the friendly service……and the food.

I have had some delicious meals at the restaurant Corona.

The hotel has been recently renovated. Look for Roberto or Giuliana in the inviting reception area.

There are some interesting frescoes dating from the 1800s in one of the waiting rooms.

The rooms are well equipped and some have lovely views over the river.

You can see the spring I wrote about in the previous post. It would be a quick trip across the walking bridge to sample some of Bagni di Lucca’s famous water.

There is a sister hotel in La Villa (1kilometre up river) called the Park Regina, where there is a pool, also available for the Corona visitors.

Giuliana’s little Fiat Bambino matches the hotel perfectly, don’t you think?

Say hello to Roberto and Juliana if you visit.
