Come Along To Lucca

anfiteatro

Wouldn’t you love to pack a bag and run away to Italy? I know I’m not the only one that feels that way. Come along this spring on the Panini Girl tour and let me be your guide. I guarantee you will fall for Lucca in a heartbeat.

From its famous “wall” to its many glorious churches, there’s a delight around every corner.

The main focus of our week will be food! A hands on cooking class in our apartment with a local chef followed by a meal that we’ve prepared will inspire you to have a dinner party once you’re back home.

We’ll spend a day in Florence on a “foodie” walking tour  with a focus on the Mercato Centrale-the city’s premier food emporium  We’ll also stop in a forno (bakery for bread), a pasticceria (pastry shop), an enotecaa (wine shop) and a cioccolateria (chocolate shop) with tastes along the way.

And one of the most memorable days of the week is spent in the Garfagnana-the mountainous region outside of Lucca. We’ll visit a farm and watch Gemma make pecorino cheese with milk from her sheep.

We’ll be treated to lunch cooked by Gemma in the farm house dining room and get to sample some of her aged pecorino and also the fresh ricotta we watched her make that morning.

Let’s not forget sampling the wines of the region which we’ll do both at home and at a local winery located outside of Lucca in Montecarlo.

In case you’re wondering, there will be plenty of time for shopping in Lucca’s charming stores so you might want to pack an extra bag.

Don’t miss out! April 28 to May 5

  1. Sounds like it would be a great (and filling!) few days. Is Lucca a province of Italy? Can’t say I’ve ever came across the word 😂

  2. I hope you get lots of interest. See you in Lucca.
