Mike’s weekly travel segment on Newstalk ZB’s Jack Tame Show on Saturday, turns the spotlight on the Tuscan gem of Lucca. http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz
In a city of 100 churches, there are two unmissables, plus explore Puccini’s family home, enjoy a Puccini concert, sample Lucca’s essential tastes, and trawl the pedestrianised shopping streets where centuries-old shops interplay with flashy new boutiques with their liberty facades. Walk the fully-preserved ring of walls designed by Leonardo da Vinci and scale the medieval towers for an eagle’s view across this instantly appealing city.
A selection of Mike’s travel articles and touring tips, including Lucca, will soon start appearing on Newstalk ZB’s website in the travel section. http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/lifestyle/travel
