    Activities

    Lucca: Fifteen minutes away by car, Lucca is one of the most enchanting towns in Tuscany - strolling along the wide avenues along the top of the ancient city walls or in the narrow streets with their ninety nine churches, browsing among the old-fashioned little boutiques, sipping a cappuccino at one of the many bars, tasting the best ice-cream, visiting the richly endowed museums - is a sheer delight. Don’t miss Lucca’s beautiful cathedral – and have a euro in your pocket, because Tintoretto’s Last Supper in the right nave of the church can only be admired after paying for the spotlight focused on it. The town is only 12 km from the villa.
    Lucca is also home to one of Italy’s nicest antique markets. Depending on the time of the year, it can be small or take over Lucca’s two largest piazzas and almost all the streets and alleys in between. Lucca’s market is held each month on the weekend that has the third Sunday of the month.

    Cinque Terre: set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet, ought to provide enough to bolster the most jaded of spirits. A Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997, Cinque Terre’s five villages date from the early medieval period. Sinuous paths tempt the antisocial to traverse seemingly impregnable cliffsides, while a 19th-century railway line cut through a series of coastal tunnels ferries the less brave from village to village. Thankfully cars – those most ubiquitous of modern interferences – were banned over a decade ago. 

    Pietrasanta: The small sculptors town Pietrasanta, just below the spectacular marble caves where the famous white carrara marble comes from (a fascinating excursion) is at 20 minutes.

    The seaside: There are sandy beaches approximately thirty minutes away on the coast of Versilia at Viareggio and the fashionable Forte dei Marmi with lively bars, designer shopping and some of the best seafood restaurants in Italy.

    Sport and Wellness: You can go cycling, play tennis and golf or relax in the spas in Bagni di Lucca or the beauty Farms in Vico Pisano and Montecatini. The hot springs of Bagni di Lucca: http://www.termebagnidilucca.it
