Panini Girl is on the move and to my favorite place-Italy! By the weekend I’ll be happily ensconced in Lucca for the next few weeks. Take a look of a few of my favorite spots.
Sunday morning will find me at my favorite neighborhood pasticceria-Buralli. This pastry shop is tiny-a few small tables and a counter big enough for a few patrons to sip an espresso. It’s in my neighborhood and after a day to two they know exactly what I am going to order-I love that!
Moving on to later in the morning I’ll be fighting the crowds at Panificio Giusti (are they open on Sunday-I hope so) for their amazing focaccia and a panino or two.
And no holiday would be complete without chocolate and my favorite spot is La Cioccolteria Caniparoli on Via San Paulino. Anyone who knows me knows I can’t resist chocolate!
Eventually I’ll need a slice of pizza after all the walking around town and this is where I’ll head. Thank you to Debra from Bagni di Lucca for turning me on to my favorite pizzeria.
Do you know about the water in the Lucca area? It’s amazing. This is the fountain in my neighborhood where I go to fill up. I buy a bottle or two of water when I arrive and once empty fill them up here.
Not a huge balcony, but big enough to go out and take in the action below in the piazza.
And lest you think all I do is eat, I will be walking every morning on Lucca’s famed wall. Of course the trees probably will not have leaves on them yet, but who cares? I’ll be in Lucca and thrilled about it.
