Day four in Lucca: wine tour and massage!

As I sat down to write this I received a text from my son Colin asking me if I was looking at real estate. I figured he must have been reading my blog about interrogating Stephano our driver about real estate in Lucca.

 This home is the former home of the Duchess of Lucca. She and the Duke had three large estates, this one was hers and is feminine in decor and style.

 Since I know some of Kari's family is following this blog.... I thought you might get a kick out of this.

I have been joking about Lucy and Ethel go to Italy. Here is Lucy taking a little peekaboo in the part we were not allowed in.

 The general consensus of everyone in the group was that wine by Mother Teresa was very good and we all bought some to bring back to our villa. I also purchased Olive Oil and honey from the vineyard to bring home to Vermont.

My day ended with an AMAZING massage back here at the Villa. A great day!!
