Summer is in its full swing and we, at Il Duomo Luxury Suites, are already thinking about September and its bounty of opportunities not to be missed.
September is the month when the beaches smell good, when people are quiet and the sea seems calmer.
September is the month when children are busy in getting back to the “school mode” and we, adults, can finally enjoy the peace and quiet of the environment around us.
Everything is calm.
The wind blows lightly and the sun shines gently on our skin, without burning it, as it has been doing in the last few months.
But September is also about festivities, activities, celebrations in the nearby town of Lucca, where the whole month is devoted to a series of interesting events that culminate with The Santa Croce Procession and the “ Luminaria”, when the whole town will be lit only by candles hold by the participants that walk along the main streets of the town, singing in praise of the Saint Cross.
This happens only once a year and gives you the chance to live an authentic, Italian, experience that very few foreigners can boast to know, or, to have taken part to.
But September, when the summer heat is finally fading away…, is also the right time to go and explore Carrara Marble Quarries, where , taken by a special Quarry Jeep, only the brave will go and see the beauty of the “White Sea”.
We love it here, in the morning, where the sun rises and shed its light on the pure whiteness, that stroke, is striking and will always strike, as if by magic, the great artists who come here to choose the material of their dreams.
The Pietà, by Michelangelo saw its origins here.
The David, was born here and many other famous pieces have seen their origins here… and many other will.
That’s why we would love you to experience this, while staying in one of our beautiful suites, facing the Piazza and the Building where Michelangelo himself slept on the nights when he went to Carrara to buy the marble to create what now belongs to Humanity, as a piece of beauty.
