How about a visit to Pistoia, a traditional Tuscan town with beautiful monuments, lovely cafes and restaurants and a colourful, daily outdoor market.
bus schedule is here www.vaibus.it/index.php…
How about Bagni di Lucca.
Lovely old spa town, in river valley and surrounded by green hills, very relaxed atmosphere. 45mins by bus from Lucca. Also see vaibus for schedules. Will pass the 'Devil's Bridge' on the way. Here's some a post about the town
We are going to Lucca in June. Is 3 days to much? what did you do there?
With regards to the original question - I concur - Bagni di Lucca, Barga and Pistoia all great possibilities.
And WoodstockBuddy: is 3 days too much? I've lived here for 6 1/2 years and haven't scratched the surface! Lots to do and see in town, lots of short trips out of Lucca to be had.
