Snow in Bagni di Lucca

It rarely snows in Bagni di Lucca, but when it does,  the village and its surrounding look absolutely stunning. Snow was widely predicted and yet this morning, when we woke up, we were amazed at the white landscape around us.

We  couldn’t resist the temptation to go for a walk through town and into the woods. It’s the first time since we bought our house that  I saw the fountain in our local park completely frozen.

From the park we took the path towards the wood, going through Bagno alla Villa with its  colorful villas.

Bagni di Lucca seen from the woods looks like an enchanted town frozen in time, surrounded by white hills and dotted with ancient villas.

…and straight home, for some hot chocolate for the kids and mulled wine for the adults!

It’s truly a wonder to see how pretty Bagni di Lucca looks under a blanket of snow.  I might even enjoy a visit to the Thermal Bath and head to Abetone for some skiing at the weekend.

    1. I agree Debra, but I think those villages are especially beautiful with the snow – it’s like being in a mountain resort!
      And woods covered in snow are just unbeatable.
