Lucca to Pontremoli

When we ate dinner at Casta D’Uva a few nights ago we really liked the local wine we had. So Tuesday after we left Villa Marta we drove back to Montecarlo to the Carmignani Winery where they make the wine. We tasted a couple other wines and bought several bottles to be shipped home.

Then we headed north. The terrain north of Lucca is mountainous. We could have taken the autostrada along the coast and had a shorter driving day but instead we chose the scenic route through the mountains.

When we arrived at our hotel we had a late lunch on the terrace.

  1. Beautiful mountains and scenery! Such a beautiful clear lake. What was the elevation of those mountains? I like that you seem to have a simple approach to meals and have some flexibility to your travels! Enjoy the rest of your travels!
