We love nature, and this is one reason why we moved to Bagni di Lucca. In every season, the scenery around is stunning and the sun is often shining in a blue sky.
Just opposite Casa Tolomei there is a picturesque walk along the river Lima The Poets Walk, where Elizabeth Barrett declared her love to Robert Browning.
When the sun is out, we often head for the woods above our house, which never disappoint, offering a magical setting and a profusion of wildflowers, birds, and stunning views.
In winter you can admire the snowy peaks of the mountains in the distance…
…and peep though the leafless trees towards the ancient villages around.
The bees are already out in the woods in search of the first flowers.
A nature ramble is always a tonic for the soul – and we feel very lucky to have so much greenery so close to us.
