How to get out of the Tuscan sun


It’s June, and in Italy that means summer…and that means hot and humid! I had been looking for a shady spot outdoors (not my balcony, although it’s pleasant enough), somewhere green. I Googled ‘gardens in Lucca’ and up popped the Palazzo Pfanner. ‘Beautiful, but difficult to find’ was the recommendation in TripAdvisor. I looked it up on my map and decided to find out for myself. After a 15 minute walk along the wall, there it was! The view from the wall was inviting so, I paid the entrance fee – yes there’s always an entrance fee – and spent the following couple of hours in this beautiful green oasis.

Enjoy… Isabella
