It’s May, that marvelous month when we turn to nature once again. Recently
Grapevine has met stranieri new to Lucca who have been happily traveling by train far and wide across the country. At a time when “bio” and “environmental” are buzz words, it’s nice to know that some people have left their cars behind, in far-off USA, UK, or elsewhere. Ever since the Jubilee Year (2000), we have been encouraging readers to walk the medieval roadways known as the Francigena. With the new hostel for pilgrims at Altopascio, this year we may hit the road ourselves! For armchair travelers or those on their way to and from the train station, stop for a cup of coffee and a sandwich at LuccaLibri, the latest in our chain of Grapevine distributors!
