It rained pretty much all day Monday. We decided to go for a walk anyway. Our original plan was to walk along the nineteenth century aqueduct. But when we started out we decided it might be kind of a boring hike.
Instead we decided to walk all the way around old Lucca on the town wall. The distance is 2.6 miles (4.2 kilometers). It was raining quite hard but there were still a lot of people out. We saw a lot of costumes because Monday was the last day of the Lucca Comics and Games Festival.
After our walk we drove to a grocery very store and replenished our lunch supplies. We both had wet pants below where the raincoats ended. So when we got back to Villa Marta we changed into dry clothes and then had a picnic lunch in the gazebo behind the hotel.
For dinner we went to a nearby trattoria, A Bimbotto. We had excellent pizza. Having each topping separate on the pizza is something I have seen quite often in Italy but not everywhere. We ended with the famous family dessert. They called it a cake but I thought it was somewhat similar to a pecan pie.
