Can recommend day trips from Lucca, can give car directions from most places in Italy, and can help you plan an itinerary. But cannot recommend hotels and restaurants! For general information, hotels and restaurants, visit frommers.com and tripadvisor.com
I've been to Italy many times, exploring many areas of the country. I've also traveled to Egypt, India, Nepal, Israel, Turkey, Fiji, Malaysia, and other places in Europe and the Caribbean.
