Our little village is called Ponte a Serraglio, part of Bagni di Lucca. It lies half an hour outside of Lucca, one of the loveliest towns in Italy. The village consists of a couple of rows of houses on either side of the Lima River in a valley of the Apuan Alps.
Coming from a subtropical climate, it all seems magical, and each day is a delight.
We started the blog to help inform visitors to our apartments about what is on offer in the village and neighbouring areas. It has grown a bit since we began and now includes many of the places we visit in Italy and other places around the world.
Our Italian stories are listed in the following categories – Italy, Bagni di Lucca, Ponte a Serraglio and Lucca. The “Day Trips” category covers those places that are relatively easy to travel to from Bagni di Lucca in a day, by car or public transport.
We like to hear your comments and please let us know if you have any questions. We have travelled quite a lot in Italy and may be able to help with your travels.
