It’s a hot day in Lucca, when I arrive. It’s Sunday and everything is shut – no bars, no alimentari for provisions for my fridge, no beautiful shops…the city is at rest. I’m here for a week to do a language and cooking course. I’m interested to see how it compares with my favourite language school, InClasse, in Verona.
My apartment is outside the city walls, a five minute walk, but it’s too hot for exploring and besides, I could do with a rest. The Lucchesi have the right idea! Food will come later.
