Under the Tuscan Rain

Actually, that's not exactly fair. The weather today in Tuscany was about as variable as it could be, anywhere from just slightly cloudy to a drenching rain.

Our target for today was Lucca, an old walled city, originally a city-state, and home of Georgia and Mary's grandfather, Guiseppi.

The outer wall of old Lucca, about 3 miles in circumference.


Many narrow streets with old, multistory buildings.

The interior of one of many churches, brightened considerably using the cameras exposure adjustment.

Art work on the wall of the same church.

Another old church looming up from the narrow streets.


Detail of the Archangel Michael on the top.


Nice knockers!


As we neared the end of our visit, the rain set in in earnest, and we were forced to buy an umbrella to continue.
