We had to wait so long to climb the tower of Pisa (since we hadn't reserved tickets ahead of time), that we arrived in our next destination at dusk: Lucca. We managed to see the ramparts (though not walk on them - but they didn't look as impressive as the ramparts we walked on in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France a few years ago, so I didn't feel cheated), the Guigini Tower from outside (closed), and the church San Michele in Foro with its many different columns, the depiction of the angel Michael on top with retractable wings against high winds).
Lucca Church of San Michele in Foro - notice the kids and me to the right of the door. :-)
We also saw this in a Luccan shop window: 5 kilograms of Nutella. That's 11 pounds. Those are regular-sized wine bottles next to it. Now that's some Nutella.

My mom would love the Nutella!
