Today, we made the hour and a half drive to the city of Lucca. Luckily, we didn't have any rain while we were out. I had a blast flirting with all the Italian men. lol This is a city filled with gorgeous views and a rich history. We learned about the make up of some of the oldest buildings in the city and of course we visited the cathedrals and baptistries. We also climbed to the top of Guiniji's tower. The climb to the top was hard. This was the first time that I realized that I am completely out of shape. However, I must say that the views made the long hike worth it. We had our first taste of gelato which was great. We saw great views, had great food, and their was great shopping opportunities. Lucca so far has been one of my favorite cities. However, I'm sure that will change as my time here continues.
