From Pisa we had a short ride to Lucca on some nice back roads. After we came to town, we first rode a lap or two on the wall which surrounds the old city and is close to 3 miles long. It’s used by lots of walkers, runners and bicyclists. We stayed at La Gemma di Elena, a very nice bed and breakfast. Innkeeper Juan was very friendly and accommodating. Lucca is very nice and has lots of shopping and dining. On our September trip we had the luxury to go to a fabulous Puccini concert.
