Lucca, Italy

What a chaming town. Took a day trip only because I could not find a hotel room for a couple of nights.
The city around the wall is at least 250 feet across and perhaps 30 feet high. There are trees, parks, a cafe, and statues on the top of the wall.
When I arrived, it was raining so I toured the Torture Museum. Lost my umbrella (purchased in the Peggy Guggenheim in Venice) and was too late for the walking tour of the city. But the sun came out, so I rented a bike for an hour and rode around the top of the wall until time to return to Florence.
