SUMMER 2012 Events
There is so much to see and do in the area during the summer months. Music, food, wine, art… you can find it all within a short distance. We will add to this post as we collect information and links, but to start here are a few of the big events happening in the area. As always, contact us with any questions you might have about the local area or events.
Massarosa Festival The Strada del Vino e dell’Olio hosts events through the year that have a food and wine focus. Many of these events also feature local and national artists, musicians, journalists and speakers. You can also find maps and ideas for taking your own self-guided wine and olive oil tours of the region. http://www.stradavinoeoliolucca.it
Dave Matthews Band Lucca 2009 For our guests joining us in July check out the Lucca Summer Music Festival webpage to see what concerts fall during your visit. The Summer Music Festival is in it’s 15th year and attracts both national and international acts. To see these world-famous musicians playing in a small, antique square in the middle of Lucca is really something amazing. Tickets are reasonably priced and access is easy. http://www.summer-festival.com
