The tandem was by far the best way to get around Lucca. However we got there later than planned as the train was in a 30min delay , so it's just not the planes. We circled the city walls and then nipped in to various sites were it was easy to lock up the bike and have a stroll or ice cream and sorbet. The bike hire was 14 euro for 3 hrs. We are finding everything very reasonably priced and especially the food.
We met a little Westie called Piazzo. We have met a few dogs but the only Westie so far and he was more than happy to have his ears scratched and a cuddle thanks to his owner in the Anfitheatra.
There was a gentle breeze as we circled the walls but when you stopped you could feel the 31degree temp.
