I saw this morning that Joanna @ Love Bagni di Lucca had posted a fabulous post about Ponte Del Diavolo…
I always like to reblog and share her posts as they are always interesting and often give me longings for Lucca and the area:)
I like this post by LOVE BAGNI DI LUCCA especially as I just love Ponte del Diavolo.
Imagine living in the house next to the bridge!!
So go on, have a look!! and then enjoy my photos of the bridge below!!
I tell you the drama ,I had, to get here the first time!!
I walked along the bloody motorway…Caught the train to Borgo a Mozzano and then walked map in hand through the town.
Now I am the worst map reader of all time…Rather than going on the road with the houses that stops just by the bridge, I go along the MOTORWAY….
Insane, but I got there, luckily it was winter then….not much traffic
My other dilemma here was that I HATE heights and the bridge was unlike walking over other bridges…
Seriously, I was terrified on the leaning tower of Pisa, that was sooooo bad!!!
I couldn’t go all the way up:)
We will not even go into the terrors walking around the Cupola in Duomo in Firenze!!
But as I was alone with no one to hold my hand, I had to grit my teeth and do it…which you can see from the photo of me on the bridge, I did!!
Stunning views, it was cold but as you can see, a clear day. Gorgeous!!
Each subsequent visit has meant I go along the proper road, up along via della Reppublicca and then sort of onto the local motorway road…sort of…
Argh, you know what I mean…
Come join me for an adventure in Lucca and we can take in the Ponte Della Maddalena together!!
I will hold your hand!! and we will have a restorative Grappa afterwards!!
Well I will:)
