Lucca in Photos | Italy

Tuscany is blessed in many different ways. Beyond being the birthplace of the Renaissance, the land is dotted with incredible villages, vineyard-soaked rolling hills, and medieval hilltop towns that truly make you never want to leave. Behind the intact Renaissance-era city’s walls lays Lucca, another Tuscan gem founded by the Etruscans way before the Common Era.

I arrived there by car, but once inside those walls, my legs were my best friends; likewise with similar cities, as it’s the only way to wander around the narrow streets and passages. The perfectly preserved city exudes charm and history everywhere. One day here was barely enough, but I needed to keep moving, so here are some of the photos I taken in the lovely Lucca.
