Lucca Day 2 - a stroll around the city walls.

(Sun 9 Oct 2016)

After travelling yesterday, we decided to walk around the city wall... it's wonderful to see the city from the height of the wall and such a relaxing place to be.

Lots of  cyclists and those running to get exercise.. plus just people enjoying a Sunday morning...

Just outside our hotel on the other side of the street..

We looked out and Pete spotted a Little Egret sitting up in a tree.

Crowded isn't it?... ;)

a distant hazy view of the mountains..

From our viewpoint, the Duomo

We made a detour to the Botanic Gardens

and then back up to the city wall

and then another detour to the Piazza San Frediano for a coffee...

and an outside look at the church

The Palazzo Pfanner

back to the hotel briefly  - Bicycles for the use of guests... we didn't take up the offer ;)

Street entertainers passed on our walk to find lunch

and it's lunch time in the Piazza Anfiteatro

and then into the garden of the Palazzo Pfanner

and so pleased to spot this Geranium Bronze (I think!!)  butterfly...

We went inside the San Michelle in Fono church

back to the hotel and then out to eat... and take some pics (the San Michelle church) as the moon had risen...
