After our cramped, nine-hour flight from Atlanta to Rome, plus a grueling four-hour drive to the Tuscan town of Lucca in a private taxi, it was with no small measure of relief when we finally arrived at the magnificent 17th-century apartment on Via Angelo Custode, inside the medieval walls and ramparts that surround Lucca to this day.

The leaning tower was the highlight!
The pictures are worth a look. Rome is next....
