More hopeful signs for Bagni di Lucca Villa: another closed down bar re-opens! It’s the one next to the police station and ICI payment centre. So it’s handily placed if you need a stiff drink after an encounter with bureaucracy.
Bus tickets can also be bought at the bar as before.
I was there at its re-opening last Sunday and greatly relished the fruit sticks after having just returned from singing at a wedding with our choir.
The interior décor has been spruced up and the bar, which will be known as “Le Comari”, is now fully in business.
What I particularly like about the bar is the extensive outdoor space where you can sip your morning cappuccino and meet your friends.
“Le Comari” doesn’t just mean godmother or next-door-neighbour in Italian. It also refers to gossipy women. So, men, beware!
