This year the live nativity took place in the village of Granaiola where the whole community pulled together to make it a special day out for everyone. Hundreds of people visited being taken up the hill by the shuttle buses that ran free all afternoon. The weather was fabulous and with the snow capped mountains and blue skies everyone had a fantastic time.

Tuscan rooms still has availability for accommodation during the Lucca Summer Festival and also the Rolling Stones Concert in Lucca in September.
Yesterday tuscanrooms took advantage of the sunshine and took our guests to the wine region of Lucca along the Strada del Vino calling in at a couple of the vineyards and taking in the amazing views from the Lucca hills.
We made Montecarlo for lunch at one of the small trattoria and just had to taste the local wine of Montecarlo.
Tuscan rooms visited Lucca today and found a great place for lunch at very reasonable prices.
Not bad for 6 euro!!
