Asian Food Availabilty in Lucca or Pisa Area

by tuscanyjim

Sounds a loopy question but Iam committed to preparing an Asian dinner when I visit Tuscany in April. Can anyone advise if I can buy Coconut Cream and Rice Flour in the area. I heard that an "Exotic Grocery Store" was located in Lucca?
Regards,

you should go to a big supermarket rather than an exotic store,, these exotic stores are often "owned" by immigrants who do not respect the food/health rules of our country
In Pisa I bought these ingredients you mentioned at Carrefour, I do not know if Carrefour is in Lucca

Many thanks for your reply - I will pick up the items in Pisa. Regards

There is a Sri Lankan store in Lucca, just off Borgo Giannotti, well within walking distance from the center. They carry a lot of "exotic" items, not just Sri Lankan stuff. I expect they would have both of those items.

I have also found coconut milk at the Esselunga just outside the city wall, though they don't always carry it. In addition, there is a Carrefour on the outskirts of Lucca, about 10 minutes drive from the center, but I wouldn't count on them having rice flour. Hope that helps!

Travel Tips for Lucca

Walk and enjoy Lucca

by sue_stone

The best way to enjoy Lucca is to walk around the cobbled streets and explore.

There are loads of Churches to see, piazza's to stumble across and cafe's to stop off for a coffee. So forget the map and just wander......unless you only have 3 hours in Lucca like I did - then you may have to run!!

Villa Torrigiani or Parco Villa di Camigliano

by elucas

Imagine returning from the Sun King’s Palace at Versailles, outside Paris, and thinking, “I must have some gardens like that !” . . . .and then being able to . . .

Villa Torrigiani is situated in the most beautiful countryside NE of Lucca towards Montecatini. In 1636 the villa was bought by Marquis Nicolao Santini. The Marquis was ambassador for the Republic of Lucca at the court of Louis XIV at Versailles. The Marquis was so impressed by Louis XIV’s gardens that he employed Le Notre – mastermind of Louis’s gardens - to create them at Villa Torrigiani.

Only a small part of these gardens remain – the Gardens of Flora and the Grotto of the Winds are especially attractive. Le Notre designed two large fountains which were to reflect the Baroque façade of the villa. Fashions change, however, and much of the park was altered later into an “English Garden” with sweeping lawns and trees instead of the very intricate parterres and terraces. I feel that both styles are lovely – in very different ways.

The villa, is beautifully kept, is still in private hands, and is one of the loveliest places I have ever seen. The inside has beautiful frescos and furniture and a “trompe l’oeil” window – a window which seems to be in three dimensions - by the Lucchese artist Pietro Scorzini.

Visiting times: 1st March – 1st Sunday in November.10.00 – 12.00 and 15.00 – 17.00.
Summer 10.00 – 13.00 and 15.00 – 19.00pm. Closed Tuesdays. Guided tours of the villa.

Price: 9 euros – park and villa. 7 euros – park.
Concessions apply.

Directions: From Lucca via Pesciatina (SS435) until junction for Camigliano, follow signs for the villa. From A11 exit for Capannori, follow signs for via Pescia and then for the villa. Parking in the grounds.

City Walls

by illudiumqh36

The must see activity by definition in Lucca is a walk along the city walls. Built in Medieval Age and then upgraded in Renaissance, are one of the three examples of complete walking walls in the world (Carcassone and Avila the others, I think).
The Walls surround all the old town and, except for police, they are car-free; so people are used to have walk, take out dogs, do jogging or cycling in every moment of the day and in every season.
The walk along the Walls it's about four kilometers long and about every 500 mt there is a fortified construction that is now used for one of the many association in town.
There are 6 main fortified gates to enter in old town; beside these there are many more small entrances called "sortite" that allow to reach more quickly the centre from a lot of spots (parkings, hotels, station...). Often these entrances let you admire the Walls from inside, but sometimes are not very well-kept; however always "different" from anything you've ever see.

A Closer Look...

by coceng

This is just a closer look of the Cathedral that I took photo of !
I didn't have the time to actually see the old historic buildings because I was sort of rushing rushing...
The facade of Chiesa di San Ferdiano mosaics from the 13th century !
