First of all I want to thank all of you who nominated the blog for the Italy Magazine competition, it is very kind of you to take the trouble. I will let you know of the outcome when I know something.
Barga is a gorgeous town not far from Bagni di Lucca. I need no excuse to visit. Here is beautiful Barga from behind from a slightly higher vantage point.
Here is the church from below.
…and this is the view from the courtyard in front of the church.
How clever of the town to hold a chocolate festival.
There was a little antique market set up in front of the entrance to the town.
…with all kinds of fun things for sale.
There were more markets in the tiny streets winding through the town.
And there was chocolate.
Yes, it is a chocolate chess set.
This chap had eaten enough chocolate and was busy cooking a sausage.
There were lots of people selling chocolate…look at this good looking threesome.
Luckily you don’t have to wait until the chocolate festival next year to buy their chocolate.
They have a shop in Fornaci di Barga, Theobroma in Via Della Republica, 381.
Thank you Barga, for a wonderful chocolaty day.
