Lucca Wedding & Transport information

by Kerso1

Hi everyone

I'm trying to organise my wedding in Lucca for next September and would love to hear from anyone who has done this before. I've heard that it can be quite complicated as far as the legal stuff is concerned.

Can anyone give me any information on how long we need to be in the country for, before the wedding. Also, we are doing this on a bit of a budget and would be keen to know of the cost involved for a civil ceremony.

The lovely woman who we have booked the Villa from, is going to help us out, but I feel really bad asking her to do the legwork for us.

We are flying Ryanair from Scotland to Pisa and would be keen to get any information about the actual airport which Ryanair fly in to. Am I right in saying that there are several Airports round about Pisa? If so, which one does Ryanair fly into and is this the one with the train station which goes to Pisa Centrale?

Any information would be appreciated, as i'd like to be able to pass this information on to any friends and family who may be coming with us. (We will probably hire a car as the wedding dress and Kilts will be quite bulky for public transport.

Thanks in advance

We're from the US so any info I give will be useless to you except, there are businesses in Italy that specialize in foreign weddings. Some friends' son recently married in Italy and it worked very well. They used http://www.slow-dreams.com/villa-sirio.htm

You might at least look at their web site and see what information they offer.

Best wishes.

Thank you very much for your help. Doesn't sound too complicated.

Would you happen ton know how many days prior to the wedding, we would need to sign any paperwork?

We were planning to travel out on the Saturday, with a view to having the wedding on a Wednesday. (I am assuming that we would need to visit the Palazzo Orsetti to do sign some paperwork, before the actual wedding??) Do you happen to know if these government buildings are open on Saturdays? It would be ok for us to travel out on the Thursday though, should the timescale not be suitable.

Look forward to hearing from you..

Kerso, It might be faster if you e-mail IamMario privately to get your information. You can click on his name to go to his Home Page. Underneath his personal photo is a small blue link to e-mail. Just click on that to write your request.

Just a suggestion. Hope it all works out for you.

Hi, We too are looking to get married in Lucca and have just returned from there. The towb hall has 2 offices and the one that you need to attend to book a time and a date for your wedding is only open between Tuesday and Friday. I was also told that you can only book within 3 months of the required date but I have yet to have this confirmed. There is only one Airport as far as I am aware in Pisa, which is where we flew too. Hope this helps. WhenI get further information I will let you know. Good luck

Travel Tips for Lucca

Local festivity of Santa Zita

by tzuki

When we traveled to Lucca by the end of April, we found that from April 24-27, the locals were celebrating the local festivity of Santa Zita who is the patron saint of Lucca.

They told us that every year, on 27th April, in the honour of S.Zita in S. Frediano square there are a lot of flowers and you can find a flower/street market in the Amphitheater. People buy a bunch of flowers along the street and they have it blessed and they keep it in their houses. The wild daffodil is the flower that is usually connected with this saint.

In those days, Piazza dell┬┤Anfiteatro is full of colours because the locals celebrate this festivity with flowers and people from everywhere come here to buy flowers. They also do a Flowers competition between the flower stalls and it is a party for the eyes, not only because the colours but also for the diversity of flowers there.

The locals made also the typical sweets and they go outside to celebrate the party.

Villa Bottini and its park

by illudiumqh36

At the end of Via Elisa there is this villa. Not opened for tour or visit, it hosts the newspaper and photograph city archives and sometimes several kind of exhibitions.
The nice park is opened all day long and in summer is often used for concert of classical music.

Good food in small places

by Herkbert about Gabry Cafe

We found the Gabry Cafe while wandering the streets of Lucca. Really more of a place to stop in and grab something to go, they also had a pleasant little eating area out front. We ordered pizzas, salad and iced teas all for around 16 Euro, and enjoyed every bite.

As this was our first day in Italy, it was also a good chance to try out our Italian on the very nice waitress. She smiled and we got our order so we must have said something correct!

Lucca Walls and Gates

by Blatherwick

The medieval walls of Lucca are well preserved and make for a great place to take a walk or bike along. The current walls were constructed between 1544 and 1650. Of the gates, Porta San Pietro was erected in 1566 and is located in the south. If you go clockwise from here you will see Porta Sant Anna, Porta San Donato (1629), Porta Santa Maria (1593), Porta San Jacopo and Porta Elisa (1804). Porta Sant Anna and Porta San Jacopo were added in the 20th century.

San Michele in Foro

by codrutz

Piazza and cathedral San Michele is right in the center of Lucca, on a place of a former Roman forum. The facade of the 12th century church is most impressive, having four rows of colonades, two large and two small, topped with a statue of Archangel Michele which has mobile wings - operated by two men climbing a stair behind. The facade is taller than the church itself (the last two rows of colonades). This feature and the simple design, arches and arches, white marble and the tower on the right back corner makes it a very easy to look at and enjoyable church. The interior is rich and also beautiful.
