Lucca surroundings - Borgo Amossano

by Ruebensaalb

I am looking for a district/or city in the Lucca surrounding area called "Borgo Amossano". Has anyone heard of this place? I would especially appreciate directions on how to get there from Lucca.

Re: Lucca surroundings - Borgo Amossano

by mccalpin

I assume you mean "Borgo A Mozzano", which is due north of Lucca.

There are direct regional trains that leave every hour or so (depends on the time of day) from Lucca to Borgo A Mozzano, with the trip taking 20-25 minutes or so...

Look at www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html and enter Lucca as the starting point and Borgo A Mozzano as the destination...

Travel Tips for Lucca

Walk on the City Wall

by HORSCHECK

Take a walk on the complete city walls of Lucca. The walk is about 4,5 km long and offers terrific views of the Old Town. Lucca is the only town in Italy that is completly surrounded by very thick walls or better say ramparts. They were built in the 16th century as a kind of defence. The walls are about 12 metres high and paved.

Villa Torrigiani

by alucas

This villa dates from the latter part of the 16th century, and was enlarged and transformed at the start of the 18th century by Alfonso Torrigiani. Visits to the house are by guided tour. There are original frescos in the rooms, and fine furniture.

Puccini's favourite caffè

by myriam_c about Antico Caffè di Simo

Authentic old style Tuscan caffè with Italian toilet !!!
The caffè dates back from 1846 and it preserves the original furnishings in liberty style and many souvenirs of famous people. We just went there for cappucino and crostino.

Piazza del Giglio

by alza

The Teatro del Giglio, a landmark of Lucca, is situated on the square of the same name. Very famous place offering a changing programme according to the season: Opera, Theater, Dance and Symphony.
It's known as the most ancient classic theater of Italy.

The Square is small and quiet, locked in as it is between the Duomo San Martino and the rather too large Piazza Napoleone.

The composer Giacomo Puccini is a child of Lucca and is forever honoured here. He was a piano accompanist at the Giglio in his early years as a musician, and returned to it years later as a composer. His operas were mounted there during his lifetime and received triumphantly. The list of his works played at Teatro del Giglio follows:

Edgar, September 1891
Manon Lescaut, September 1893
La Bohème, September 1896
La Bohème, Summer 1899
Tosca, September 1900
Manon Lescaut, Autumn 1906
La Bohème, January 1906
Madama Butterfly, September 1907
Manon Lescaut, Autumn 1910
La Fanciulla del West (The Girl of the Golden West), September 1911
Tosca, Autumn 1912
La Bohème, Carnival 1917
Tosca, Spring 1919
Madama Butterfly, Autumn 1920
La Bohème, Carnival 1923
Manon Lescaut, September 1923
Tosca, Carnival 1924

Now I'm upset with myself for the photo I took at the square... I thought I was getting Puccini but I got Garibaldi (again!) -- a tragedy of Toscan proportion!

There's a very pleasant Enoteca tucked into a corner of the square, where I had a long Aperitivo in the company of two nice German or Swiss women. When they left, a young family took their place. The baby stayed in his stroller and babbled but the 3-year old boy immediately set out to explore what obviously was the largest playground he'd ever seen. Amazing to watch him walk away from his parents to climb stairs to the buildings, touch the old stones, constantly looking back towards the Enoteca to be sure he wasn't left behind! And to hear his cries of joy! A beautiful moment at the end of the day.

The Clock Tower

by codrutz

Superb clock tower, actually the oldest tower in Lucca. I have a fascination of the tower clocks - check out my pictures here for a close-up. It is a swiss mechanism dehind that front. The Clock Tower (Torre delle Orre) can be climbed into - only this and the Guigi Tower can be climbed.
