    If you are in Lucca, and looking for a fantastic market tour and homemade meal, you must visit with Monica. Monica first took us to the local farmer’s market to browse and buy produce, (it was fascinating to see how she chose only the best) then back to her home where she prepared traditional food that was tasty and plentiful and accompanied by different wines. We met Monica’s family, a wonderful daughter and very nice husband. They made you feel like family. We spent 4 amazing hours eating and drinking and laughing. Great experience! Written by Jodi.
