Lucca in Tuscany #86

A beautiful town full of surprises as this tower where oak trees grow..

Towers used to be this way, and the shade on the top is some enjoyable pleasure after a long climbing up the stairs.

Those towers are everywhere over Tuscany .. they were some evidence of wealth .

Or this place built on the remains of a roman amphitheatre. The structure of the old building is still visible.

I will tell more about towers and pits soon and gardens as there are gardens as beautiful as English ones though totally different. Here philosophy is at work when English gardeners wished to create the ultimate landscape.

Lucca is one of the most beautiful towns I have ever visited. I climbed a tower there and found two lovers - a latter-day Romeo and Juliet perhaps - kissing beneath a tree at the top.
