Destinations of: Tuscany, Italy

Surrounded by medieval walls, lovely, laid-back Lucca makes a welcome change from the hectic streets, crowds and queues found in many other Tuscan towns. The old town is reached through medieval city gates and strolling the cobbled streets is the ideal way to explore. Watch out for locals on bicycles and discover ancient churches, gorgeous piazzas, bell-towers, medieval houses, alfresco cafes and smart boutiques. The annual Puccini Opera Festival, held in Lucca in July/August could be a wonderful excuse to visit.

The Convent of San Francesco is situated on the route of the Via Francigena, the old pilgrim road from Canterbury in England to Rome. The convent lies atop a small rise, and hovers over the beautiful medieval town of San Miniato, from where dramatic Tuscan sunsets and views over the city of Florence and the famous rolling hills can be appreciated. The town is of Etruscan and Roman origins and its historical centre is encircled by city walls, gates, fortresses and medieval structures. The town cathedral, the Diocescan Museum of Sacred Art and the Church of San Domenico are flush with medieval frescos and precious artworks. The much prized white truffle grows in the area and is celebrated in a 3-week-long festival each November.
