Puccini and his hometown

(Lazy day in Lucca)

While having an unusual bright sun I’ve been visiting some of the churches and museums in Lucca.


Next to my youthhostel this church was the first after checking out the guided tour through the city in the afternoon.


In one of the churches you’ve got several floors in which they were built – beginning in the roman time, than medival and finally gothic style.

Now I went into the museum of the cathedral and the audioguide gave you so many expressions that made history come alive.


While eating out at the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro suddenly a guy felt on his knees and asked his girl of she would marry him…great!!!


So in the end of this cultural day I took the opportunity to join in an opera of Puccini in a church – this was an excellent end of the day.
