Lucca und Umgebung

Piazza del Mercato in Lucca © Elisabeth Harzhauser

Die erste Station unseres Roadtrips führt uns nach Gallicano, einem Ort nördlich von Florenz, direkt am Hang der Berge. Von hier aus wollen wir die nähere Umgebung mit ihren Dörfern und ihrer unberührten Natur entdecken.

Als wir am gestrigen Tag Florenz Richtung Norden verlassen, müssen wir uns durch dichten Regen kämpfen. Wahrscheinlich setzt unser Navigationsgerät deswegen aus, sodass wir uns gleich mal ordentlich verfahren am Weg zu unserer Unterkunft ;).

Barga

In Gallicano angekommen werden wir dafür mit strahlendem Sonnenschein und einem zauberhaften B&B belohnt. Unser Vermieter Carlo hält mit Tipps nicht hinterm Berg und so kommt’s, dass wir uns zu Sonnenuntergang im süßen Nachbarort Barga wiederfinden. Das kleine Dorf gilt als eines der hübschesten in der ganzen Umgebung. Das können wir nur bestätigen! In steilen Gässchen geht es hinauf zum Duomo, der an der höchsten Stelle der Stadt erbaut wurde.

Von hier haben wir einen atemberaubenden Blick auf die Berge, die halb hinter Wolken versteckt von der untergehenden Sonne magisch erleuchtet werden. Wir sind die einzigen Menschen hier oben und können das Schauspiel in aller Stille genießen. Ich bin verzaubert :)!

Lucca

Den heutigen Tag nutzen wir für einen Tagesausflug in die nahe gelegene Kleinstadt Lucca. Die einstige römische Kolonie ist auch heute noch von einer durchgehenden Stadtmauer umgeben, die zu den am besten erhaltenen Renaissance-Befestigungen Europas zählt.

Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts wurde die Ringmauer in eine Grünanlage umgewandelt. Heute spaziert man oben auf der Mauer um die ganze Innenstadt herum oder wandert durch die angrenzenden saftig grünen Wiesen. Oder macht wie wir ein kleines Mittagsschläfchen auf einer sonnigen Bank ;).

Die Stadt selbst ist ähnlich wie Florenz gekennzeichnet von engen Gassen und vielen hübschen Kirchen. Aber ganz anders als Florenz ist es hier angenehm ruhig und überhaupt nicht überlaufen von Touristen.

Besonders gut gefällt uns die Piazza del Mercato. Ein elipsenförmiger Platz an der Stelle des einstigen römischen Amphitheaters. Die Gebäude rund um den Platz sind wirklich entlang der Elipsenform angelegt. So etwas sieht man selten!

Villa Grabau

Am Rückweg machen wir noch einen Abstecher zur Villa Grabau. 1412 erbaut wechselte sie seither mehrmals ihre Besitzer und ihr Aussehen. Zuletzt wurde sie von einem deutschen Kaufmann aus der Nähe von Hamburg und seiner toskanischen Frau gekauft. Seither ist sie im Besitz der Familie Grabau.

Die Nachfahren des Kaufmanns leben auch heute noch in den oberen Stockwerken der Villa. Das Erdgeschoss ist öffentlich zugänglich und wurde uns von einer Führerin in 10 Minuten gezeigt. Nicht wirklich spektakulär – mich hätte schon mehr interessiert, wie die Familie oben residiert ;).

Umso eindrucksvoller dann aber der Garten der Villa. Ein alter italienischer Teil mit vielen Zitronenbäumchen kombiniert mit einem englischen Garten.

Die Anlage ist wunderschön gepflegt und man kann sich gut vorstellen, wie frühere Generationen auf den verschlungen Wegen gelustwandelt sind. Besonders angetan hat es mir das Gewächshaus. Von der Decke hängen Schlingpflanzen, die von der untergehende Sonne, die durch die großen Fensterbögen blitzt, in ein warmes Licht getaucht werden.

Ich finde es zauberhaft hier – der Mann ist hingegen schon hinter der nächsten Hecke verschwunden ;).

Villa Oliva

Ein paar hundert Meter weiter steht die Villa Oliva. Ich bin zwar die einzige, die sich noch für einen weiteren Garten begeistern kann, aber ich finde die Gelegenheit muss man beim Schopfe packen ;). Die Villa Oliva kann nicht von Innen besichtigt werden.

Der Garten wirkt etwas weniger freundlich als bei der Villa Grabau. Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass die Sonne schon fast hinter den Bergen verschwunden ist, vielleicht verbreiten aber auch die vielen Steinfiguren eine eigentümliche Stimmung. Die Gartenanlage wirkt auf jeden Fall düsterer und geheimnisvoller ;).

Fazit

Wir sind bisher total entspannt von unseren Ausflügen. Die Straßen sind eng und kurvig, aber dafür sind die Strecken, die wir zurücklegen müssen, nicht allzu lang. Beim Herumspazieren ist es dafür dank weniger Touristen sehr angenehm und ruhig :).

  13. Segway Verona offers tours that make sure you will enjoy a fun and immerse experience of our beloved city. We combine Segway, our innovative way of transportation, with tours in the historical city centre. Through our explorations of 1 or 2 hours, we will bring you to the most breathtaking spots, so that, if you do not stay long in Verona, we make sure that you see all of the unmissable sights!

    Segway is really easy to use! It is so intuitive that it feels like an extension of the human body. To understand why, consider this: if you stand up and lean forward, so that you are out of balance, you will intuitively put your leg forward. Segway works the same way: to move forward or backward, the rider just leans slightly in such direction, and Segway will follow your movements. It is also easy to turn right or left, since the rider just has to push respectively Segway’s handlebar.

    Segway is safe. Anyone over the age of 12 can join our tours, except for pregnant women. Apart from these cathegories, we encorage people of every age to try Segway, because this self-balancing object can really make your experience in Verona much more delightful! In fact, if it is hot, you will enjoy some fresh air and avoid to sweat; if it is cold, you will have the possibility of staying outside the least possible time. It is proved that our 2 hours tours show you what you will see in 6 hours walking!

    All the tours start with a little training on how to use Segway, because for us safety is the priority. However, we experienced that it takes just a little practice to master on Segway! There are no required skills and, in particular, no need to be able to bicycle. There will always be a tour leader with you, guiding the whole group, so that you can enjoy the view and the tour of Verona. Audioguides (available in different languages) will provide the information you need to fully comprehend the history and architecture of our main monuments, squares and buildings.

    In particular, our 2 hours tour will show you: Piazza Bra, one of the biggest squares in Italy, with the Arena, the famous Roman amphitheatre; we will then take Via Oberdan in order to see Portoni Borsari, one of the ancient entrance of the Roman city; we will firstly explore Piazza Erbe and secondly Piazza Dei Signori, two squares full of symbols and buildings with enchanting beauty, and then see Arche Scaligere. Heading to the Duomo, Verona’s Cathedral, we will pass by Santa Anastasia, next to the Conservatory of music; after that, we will have a break on Ponte Pietra, the bridge with the breathtaking view of the Roman Theatre and San Pietro Castle (and much more). On our way back, we will stop at Juliet’s house, so that you don’t forget to take pictures and write your names on the walls! We will conclude our tour with Castelvecchio, the Scaligeri castle and enjoy its amazing view of Verona.

    People who went on tours with us really appreciate our flexibility: we do not have fixed tour’s hours, so we can arrange the time that fits the best. Moreover, we try to adjust the path according to your preferences, spending less time on spots you have already seen and dedicate more on your favourite sights. Read what people say about us on tripadvisor…

    So, if you want to make the most out of your time in Verona, contact us or stop by our office!

    OFFICE HOURS: Monday to Saturday (only closed on Sunday) from 10 am to 5 pm.

    DIRECTIONS: We are located in Piazza Cittadella 11b, very close to Piazza Bra, the main square with the Arena.

    From Piazza Bra you can arrive at our office on foot (3 minutes): pass under the arch of the gateway with the big clock (Portoni della Bra) and walk through Corso Porta Nuova for approximately 100
