Day Trips from Lucca

We will be staying in an apartment near Lucca for a week at the end of October, we will have a hire car. I am looking for suggestions for day trips within two hours drive (each way). Interested in history, architecture, scenery and wine. Dream off medieval hilltop towns and villages.

All suggestions welcome.

Lucca is about 5 hours or more drive from Rome, you will spend two of your seven days driving if you go to Lucca. This wont leave you a lot of days to spend in Rome. You may be better off with three days in rome and three days somewhere an hour or two from Rome, maybe even Sorrento which is about three hours away. To go to Lucca you would be better off flyng into florence which is an hour away and splitting your weeks vacation between florence and Lucca.

I have just returned from Italy and visited Lucca twice, do make sure that whilst you are in Lucca to hire a bike and cycle around this beautiful city. Sit up on the grassy walls with wine bread and cheese and relax in this magic little town.

I'm coming to this discussion a bit late, but I want to add that there's no reason to bring snacks along to restaurants for your toddler unless the child is a very picky eater. I don't think I've ever seen a child's menu, but restaurants are always happy to prepare a simple dish for a small child. You might ask for pasta with butter and grated cheese, or spaghetti with just a little tomato sauce, or rice with a little broth. Then for finger foods, ask for grissini (bread sticks) or French fries. They will also bring an extra small plate for the child, if you'd like to cut up and share some of the things on your plate.

High chairs are fairly common, but not found everywhere.
