Browsing the web, I found an interesting article dated November 2013 and entitled “An Italian plant fair near Pisa makes a great weekend break” by Stephen Lacey on the online newspaper The Telegraph. Stephen Lacey writes about a nice plant fair called Murabilia usually held at the end of September in a pretty city close to Pisa called Lucca!
I agree with Mr Lacey about his suggestion to visit Lucca (“stunning location”) during Murabilia but if you are interested in plant and flowers and you’re looking for an excuse to come to Lucca in spring.. here you are with Verdemura!
Quite similar to Murabilia, Verdemura will be held on April 4th, 5th and 6th 2014 and about 150 exhibitor will be welcomed on the Reinassance Walls.
The local Guides of Lucca (me too!) will organize guided tours to the city and to the Botanical Garden, so feel free to contact me for information about tickets and rates.
And if you are looking for a Bed&Breakfast in Lucca, inside the walls, in a quite area, I suggest Casa San Jacopo al Giardino.
