Lucca, Italy: Today's Travel Photo

(Photos by Cheryl-Anne Millsap)

We had our choice. While in Italy, we could head out for a day in Pisa, following in the footsteps of most tourists traveling through Tuscany, guidebooks in hand, marking the Leaning Tower off the bucket list. Or, we could take the train to the small town of Lucca. We chose the latter.

Lucca is worth seeing; beautiful, full of culture, history and good food. After entering the city gate, we strolled along the path on top of the 16th Century wall that still surrounds the city and stopped to soak up the sun and sights at the Piazza del Anfiteatro Romano. The Piazza is the site of an ancient Roman amphitheater and is still a popular gathering spot for locals and tourists.

Oh, and for Opera lovers, Lucca is the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini. Are you humming Nessun dorma now? I am...

Today most of the peoples are loaded with sever work pressure, therefore planning for a short vacation away from the hassles of life is needed so much these days that we can go to any lengths for that. Going on a trip is an event that quite a lot of us look forward to. Out of various interesting places to visit and to see, one of the most popular vacation destinations is known to be Europe.
