the Trattoria Da Pinzo run by Emma and her family and provides

great food at a reasonable prices. The village also offers a Bank,

whatever seasonal food is on offer.

Puccini. There are concerts all year round. The Lucca Summer

Festival of popular music is held in June and July each year. There

are winter programmes of opera in the city and Jazz nights in local

restaurants.

animation, illustration and games at the end of October is fun for

enthusiasts or photographers wanting unusual photos.
