Italy day 5: Lucca

I had never heard of Lucca before my mom helped us plan our trip to Italy. She has friends who live nearby, so they met us there for the day.

Lucca was amazing! It's a large medieval city completely surrounded by the original walls. My experiences with walled cities were Avignon and Carcassonne. Lucca was entirely different; the walls were so thick that there was a road (only for bikes/pedestrians) and playgrounds on top of the walls!

Poor Dio got Ivy's fever, so he was having a hard time that day. He barely made it around the walls--and then we dragged him all around the city, too.

We made the 4-hour drive home with no puking. I gave Inga the job of counting tunnels: 169.
