My obsessions-Italy and Cooking

Buon Natale…

I’ve never been to Lucca during the winter, but I’d like to make believe that I’m there right now sending this Christmas greeting out to you.

Form the historic anfiteatro with its gorgeous tree lighting the piazza, to the view from the top of the Guinigi Tower (maybe next time I’ll make it all the way up)…

…to a stroll beside the canal that runs along the eastern side of the city…

… and to stopping at the city’s many charming shops for those last minute gifts and eating my way through town…

Buon Natale to my friends, followers and to you lovers of all things Italian. May there be a Christmas in Italy in our future!
