The hotel was charmingly decorated and furnished and run by a very nice older man. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is located just outside the main walls of the city with only about a five minute walk. There is easy access to all amenities.

Post lunch walk around the walls of Lucca - did I say it was hot today? And now we await the Trenitalia service to Firenze. Back now in Florence where the heat has given way to thunder and rain ... And a cooler temperature. Ahhh ... ...
... in the beautiful weather was the best thing ever. I don't remember a time that I was so relaxed. After the beach, we went to the Hotel in Lucca. I can't complain about my apartment by any means, but being in an air conditioned room with a big comfy bed wasn't too bad either. After getting ready and showering we went downstairs in the hotel to a fancy restaurant area to have a big dinner with everyone from API. After dinner, they had buses transporting us to the city center ...
... of that language.
So, we are off to see an Icelandic band, singing Icelandic (sort of), in Italy.
How do you reckon us Aussies are going to go, language wise?
Seriously, their music is absolutely beautiful , a wave of surrealism drifting over you, orchestral, choral, haunting.....
Rachael still a little sketchy on the finer details....not much in the way of 'doof-doof!
Our Apartment has 6 bikes which can be used at any time to get around Lucca. ...
