    Traveller Tips

    Bagni di Lucca

    Lucca is a famous walled tourist town, but when you have had enough of the crowds take a 30 minute trip into the hills to Bagni di Lucca. It is cooler, calmer, greener, and you will find charming accommodation. No big hotels, but a few charming pensioni.

    Puccini's house in Torre del Lago

    For Puccini nuts I recommend a trip to see his house at Torre del Lago Puccini. The house looks out onto the lake which is now very polluted. Puccini left the house eventually because the surroundings had deteriorated. In spite of this the house which is now a museum is well worth a visit

    Stay overnight at Orvieto

    Ovieto is a beautiful town, teeming with tourists during the day. But by night, they've got into the buses and gone. Stay a night or two to enjoy Orvieto without the throngs.
