Le Baccanti provided my group with a guide who happily explained Lucca's history and curiosities to us all. We had scheduled a morning tour, and each person in my family appreciated this tour, which was filled with interesting facts and little-known details about Lucca. Our guide was cordial and professional, and gave us clear and pleasing artistic, historic and food-related tidbits about a wonderful city we had never visited on past trips to Tuscany.
