View from the terrace of & rsquo; Hotel Monaco & Grand canal

I remembered the vaporetto, small alleys on which abuts, ice-creams, the small caterer removed the & rsquo; arsenal, s & rsquo; hostel where girls and boys were separated, pasta to dry ink, werewolf on the bus…

My first time in Venice c & rsquo; was there 7 years for the biennial d & rsquo; architecture where j & rsquo; had gone with my school. I remembered that everything was fine, that this city on the & rsquo; water was crazy.

But my memory was very bland indeed. J & rsquo; have rediscovered Venice last week at d & rsquo; delicious day organized by Chantal Thomass (I will return to the reason for this visit very soon).

We had the chance to ride around the city by boat, j & rsquo; so have seen a very different Venice last, from new angles. J & rsquo; étrennais a new goal with my camera, j & rsquo; was like crazy.

For those who n & rsquo; have never been there, Remember the tourism side always a little off-putting and whisked away in this beautiful city. Praise a small apartment airbnb on in the southern part of the arsenal and made museums, there are plenty of beautiful exhibitions to (some addresses at the end of & rsquo; Article).

Lucca… a small town full of color, without the fuss, perfect for doing nothing in the sun and ask quietly.

J & rsquo; had the coix from between one week and then in Florence 2 Lucca days for a wedding, or spend all my time in Lucca. J & rsquo; I chose the latter and I don & rsquo; have not regretted !

The problem of & rsquo; a city like Florence c & rsquo; is that c & rsquo; is large and that & rsquo; there are a thousand things to do. Then quickly tried to go round the city on foot and make lots of visits. and go flat every night. And, stay in the city center is quite expensive, So we are left still a little way if you want to be in a nice, affordable place.

While Lucca c & rsquo; is small, a room in the heart of the city you can rent, tour the ramparts bike in one hour, around the city quickly feet, eat and drink cheap shots, eat the best ice cream in Tuscany, doing nothing, napping to the rhythm of the bell tower of the & rsquo; church. J & rsquo; loved <3

Here is a small guide my vacation :

# To go ~ Bus

5€ from Florence, departure is next to the railway station. Take a ticket at Cap COPIT here : Largo Fratelli Alinari, 9, Firenze, then a bus “Lucca Direttissima” at the corner of Via Fiume (platform 1). There are bus and 1:30 c & rsquo; is set, that takes you to Piazzale Verdi (ask the driver to warn you, there are several stops in Lucca).

# Airbnb to sleep ~

I swears by it when I travel and n & rsquo; have only good surprises.

J & rsquo; have rented This small room Ensuite bathroom that was at the heart of the city, close to everything (and to 2 minutes walk from the & rsquo; bus from Florence – pratique). No complaints, c & rsquo; was charming.

# To drink the & rsquo; aperitif ~ Emporio Del Sale

C & rsquo; Airbnb is our host who advised us l & rsquo; location. It includes all the young people of the city who come to taste wine and sample the cheeses and meats sold by the house. Perfect place to chat in a small pedestrian street candlelight for & rsquo; aperitif !

Emporio Del Sale
Via dell&rsquo;Anfiteatro 23, Lucca

# Pour manger ~ Osteria Piccola Lucca Drento

We tested several restaurants in Lucca but this one remains my favorite. A small place but unpretentious serving good local dishes (must taste the soup to Lucca) and also good boards of cold cuts and cheese. There are a lot of & rsquo; accustomed terrace, good sign ;)

There are several weeks now, I left a few days in Tuscany : a quick visit to Florence and a stay in the small town of Lucca where I & rsquo; going to a wedding.

Real holidays, no pressure to do nothing d & rsquo; other than sleep, strolling in the sun in the small streets, eat ice cream and good sausages without feeling guilty not to visit all that the city has museums and monuments.

I make you a little accurate account of it with lots of good addresses :)
