What a wonderful evening! Our guide, Marta, was a fountain of knowledge! It was very clear that she loves her city. She was animated, personable, and connected us with the history of Lucca and the surrounding areas. At both refreshment stops we enjoyed Tuscan wine, cheese, and crostini, etc. Marta was an excellent guide.
