Mediterranean cruise: Livorno/Lucca

This was the first stop after leaving Civitavecchia, west of Rome. The trips available during the day there were Pisa (been there), Florene (ditto). Lucca, north and in the hills. Included was a visit to a winery.

The rest are all Lucca

The surrounding countryside

And the winery, where you could choose your vintage:

As you can see, the weather was beautiful. That would hold for much of the trip, despite the forecasts of rain. 


  1. It all looks just great. Warm and sunny as one would expect....:)

  2. Great countryside. The winery tour would be top of the list.

  3. Beautiful! Thanks for giving us a taste of what you saw!

  4. Wonderful photos, Mike. I'm happy you enjoyed such wonderful weather and delightful experiences.
