Not all our walking tours are always under the Tuscan sun! Tuscan rain happens here, especially in Lucca. Lucca has a wonderful Meditteranean climate. However, Lucca can also be very rainy. I think the reason for our rainy days is a combination of being close to the mountains to the north, but still close to the sea. Whatever the reason, we benefit from the rainfall and it doesn’t do much to dampen the city’s charm. Our city is so green all year round and we have plenty of sun to enjoy as well.
I try to keep an eye on the weather forecast so that I am ready in case of any rain. I keep my little umbrella buried in my purse, just in case. And it has happened a few times that I got caught without one as the rains came down. My hair gets spoiled, my shoes are soaked, and I feel the dampness all over while doing a tour! That is not as pleasant as it should for both me or the guests that are on my tour.
Take a look at the photo. It was a wet rainy day, but we prepared ourselves for the rain. The photo is of myself and the tour escort. You can see from our smiling faces that taking a tour even on a rainy day that Lucca is still beautiful! In fact, it can be a great day for a tour because we will get you out of the rain into our amazing churches, museums and shops. There is no reason to let a little rain spoil a great vacation!
