Lucca, Italy: Your Insider Guide on the Best Food and Places to See
Enough with Florence and Siena already. You should be walking the medieval walls of Lucca; eating aperitivo in Pisa; sipping Chianti at Castello di Brolio; or lounging by the sea in San Vicenzo. You’ll learn all about this on the Postcard Academy podcast episode: “Lucca, Pisa, and Other Towns in Tuscany You Must Visit.”
In this article, I’ll focus on the best things to see and eat in Lucca, Italy. This guide is based on my podcast chat with Toni Mazzaglia, founder of the food tour company Taste Florence. After interviewing Toni for the Florence episode of the Postcard Academy, we became fast friends and decided to roadtrip through Tuscany.
