This weekend

We are enjoying some welcome rain today in Bagni di Lucca. It should help the local fire situation.

As much as we need the rain, a fine weekend would be welcome. The annual walk from Fornoli will happen this Sunday, 7th April.

Bagni di Lucca walk

You can begin in Fornoli and walk for 2 kilometres or more. The longest walk is 20 kilometres. Just roll up and register from 7.30am.

It is a lot of fun and there are refreshments provided along the way.

The wonderful garden event, Verdemura, is on again this week in Lucca. It begins on Friday at midday and continues Saturday and Sunday. It is held on the stunning wall of Lucca near the Santa Anna entrance.
