It's your call.
www.viamichelin.com says that Milan-Lucca is 280 km (175 miles), and that the trip would take about 3 hours along very boring autostrade (equivalent to US Interstates) at a cost of €21 got tolls and about €30 for fuel.
Parking inside the walls of Lucca is a problem, but there are large parking lots just outside the walls.
I've been checking airlines and what you are saying confirms what I'd begun to suspect. I'm surprised...so I suppose it's time for Plan B. Or C, rather. Please tell me if you have any advice to give. Many thanks.
Thank you - that is very helpful - I believe that's what we will do now.
sydneynick - your advice is much appreciated. Many thanks.
