On the walls of Lucca

Here are more photos of Lucca. I mentioned in an earlier post that Lucca is famous for its thick walls, but didn't post photos where the walls could be seen (I only posted photos that I had taken while on them). Well I've included some pics of the walls from the side view so you get some idea of its scale...

Moss growing on the walls...

There's a trench all around the walls...

This is my shadow saying, 'Hi'

This walkway is on the wall...so people can just walk, ride bikes...etc on the wall.
I think it's pretty cool.

All these trees are growing on the wall... I like this photo with the dome in the background...

Lol, I keep saying 'on the wall'. That's because I'm so fascinated with the walls. I guess this is the closest I've been to being atop something like the Great Wall of China. Perhaps I'll actually get a chance to go there someday. Well, hope you enjoyed the photos. Have a great December!
