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.
