We had a pretty lazy day in Lucca (just how Neill likes it) today. We hired some bikes and pedalled around getting photos. It's such a great town to relax in, hardly any traffic (other than fellow cyclists).
The spent the rest of the afternoon on my own as Neill went back to the hostel for a sleep. I decided to get some exercise in and did a couple of laps of the city wall. It's roughly 3km per lap and enough to get a sweat up!
As it was out last night in Tuscany we *had* to try one of the local specialties, 'Papardelle ai ragu di Cinghiale' (or parpadelle with wild boar sauce). It was pretty good but always so expensive to eat here. A tiny sit-down meal usually costs 15-20 euro ($25-30) and you are still hungry afterwards.
By the way, Lucca is where Pinocchio was invented, and also the birthblace of Puccini (famous composer).
