I  have enjoyed eating at Palio l’Osteria several times since it opened and I think it is a great addition to Ponte a Serraglio. While it looks elegant and stylish it is not expensive…Antipasti €9, Primi Piatti €11, Secondi Piatti €15. The service is excellent and everyone is friendly and welcoming, a delightful experience all round.

Even though the weather is changing and the days are becoming cooler, there are still things happening in Bagni di Lucca. Here are a couple of things that look interesting.

Dressing up

Last weekend in Bagni di Lucca was the wonderful event, Shelley a Bagni di Lucca…la poesia e il ballo.

The event was  attended by people in costumes of the period when the poet Shelley visited Bagni di Lucca. A crowd gathered at Villa Web and walked to various sites in the area. The photos below were taken by Rita Gualtieri.

There was a dance at the casino in Ponte a Serraglio in the evening.

Look at the Facebook pages of Marco Pistolozzi, Valerio Ceccarelli and Rita Gualtieri for some wonderful photos of the well dressed characters.

I think the enthusiasm the partipants bring to these events is great. I wish I had been there.

The pool is in the most magnificent setting with views across the mountains and has all the style of a 1950s movie. It is great that the renovations have enabled it to be open for at least some of the summer season.

Here are some more photos of the gorgeous pool taken by Elizabeth Nelson…a big fan of the pool.
