Lucca, Italy in April

I'm so excited to be in Italy for 2 weeks with my friends, Christy, Rita and Vic! The trip was planned about 6 weeks ago, seemed like a great idea to all 4 of us, we bought our tickets to Roma and here we are! I booked the first apartment in Lucca through VRBO inside the walled town for our first week, Christy booked our second week in Montepulciano and Vic rented a great 4 door Alfa Romeo for our entire stay.. and we were ready to go. Arrived Wednesday, April 17th, left Boston at 5pm on April 16th. Lovely little ancient town we're in, everywhere I look there is another photo op, the colors, old buildings, and people are so beautiful.

 The wall promenade in Lucca, it circles the entire town and is actually on top of the wall.

 Lucca and laundry day.

 The main sight people come to see in Lucca, the round Piazza Antifeatro

Early spring, all the flowers aren't blooming yet, but it's much greener and warmer than Boston.

This morning I noticed that the flower boxes had been filled, the village of Lucca is well cared for on all levels, no garbage in the streets and homes are well taken care of.
