TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN Grand Hotel Guinigi Lucca
This hotel was clean and neat. It was not in the center of Lucca. You needed to take a cab into Lucca if you wanted to spend any free time walking around. We booked the Tuscan Dinner excursion that day, so it really didn't affect our stay.

... but the water is now piped underground. Nevertheless, it is some of the best water you will ever taste and makes a great cup of tea. It is an awesome structure and runs for 3 kilometres.
We have found a good restaurant under the town walls, where we can get a good feed for a reasonable cost. The waitress is a good looking girl but has had tattoos, involving writing, plastered over her arms and back. After finishing our main course she came over to see if we wanted desserts. ...
... along, although it is strictly a pedestrian walk and only police or emergency vehicles are allowed to travel along it.
On a cloudy day, we drove to Pisa, up over the hills and only 22km/30 minutes by car. We had considered riding there as it is only 35km along the bike path, which for most of the trip follows the river, but apparently the last 5km is on the main road, and a bit ...

We had to change trains in La Spezia. Corniglia railway station is at the bottom of the hill and the city is at the top of 500 steps. We did not see the bus and Ron insisted on carrying our 40 kg of luggage up the steps. Never again! There are ...
... mountain range (Monte Pisano) we look out to from our terrace. What I hadn't quite realised was that the drive OVER the mountain would be quite so tortuous. Anyway, it was a beautiful morning, and just about our only companions on the road were numerous cyclists all proving themselves possible Tour de France (or perhaps Giro d'Italia) competitors. Although several seemed rather portly, their legs still seemed capable of taking them up vertiginous slopes ...
... it a must see destination on my trip. It was about a 2.5 hour drive where we passed a panoramic view of the Ligurian mountains. This is a large stretch of mountains that separates Italy east and west down the center. In the morning sun, you could see white areas that glistened in the light. This was not snow, but actually white marble. These are the mountains where all Italian marble originates and is where all those artists and sculptures ...
