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

Back to the park…
…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.
