Take (Wine) Flight
After exploring Lucca’s main cathedral, head across Piazza San Giovanni to this small bar stocking over 150 wines, with a concentration on choices from the immediate region. The friendly staff are happy to provide insight and suggestions, and wine flights are available so you can sample a few selections; let the staff know if you find something you love that’s from the area, as they may be able to arrange a visit to the vineyard or winery. The food menu is designed to pair well with the vintages, and includes shareable items like meat-and-cheese platters and oversized sandwiches. There’s also a small bottle shop on-site, so you can pick up some liquid souvenirs.
