Happy holidays from the very heart of Lucca
A different way to discover the historical-artistic beauties and traditions of the city in detail and staying close, even if distant, during the Christmas holidays. Alongside the guided tours promoted together with the tourist guide associations, here are also two virtual views on the Icarus platform.
On Sunday 19 December, Christmas wishes from the church of Santa Maria Corteorlandini on this link https://icarus.travel/travel-view/a71eaeee-fd5c-4ae4-bdc2-effcfb65cb43
The event includes a visit to the church and to the historic 17th century crib, set up at the main altar with large statues made of plaster and straw, papier-mâché, bisque, dressed in traditional refined silk robes of the Lucca manufacturers of the time. At the end of the visit, a small group of children from the Baluardo choir will sing a Christmas song directed by Maestro Elio Antichi.
On December 30 a virtual visit to the Guinigi Tower, for the New Year's wishes on this link: https://icarus.travel/travel-view/a657d8ff-d901-48b0-9434-6967a6be5a68
There will be a brief introduction to the Guinigi palace and the ascent to the tower and a flight over the city with the drone, with a final toast.
