    TUSCANY-LUCCA help out childcare/playing and speaking English our 9 years old child close to Lucca.

    Hi people! We are Simona and Mariano, we have a 9 years old child, nice and curious. I work as a pedagogist child- -art and nature in Lucca and Mariano as a IT at University in Pisa. Lucca is a wonderful tiny historical town in Tuscany close to many cultural and natural places and attractions.
    We are very easy going people. We love meeting people and different cultures. We live in a 3 stages court yard house with garden. We have a cat. Internet Wi-fi is available. We like spending time at the seaside and in the mountains in Tuscany during the week end, and in the afternoon in summer time. Bike is available to explore the area, ( there a nice river close to our house, and a bike path close the river going to the the center of Lucca).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Lucca is a very nice and historic town, and we live in a very quite area. We would like to offer the possibilities to young people to travel and make experiences abroad as we did when we were younger. We love, music, nature, arts, cooking and eating together, going to the seaside and the mountains, welcome friends. We would like to share our Italian way of living with you, our language and improving our English or other languages ( I can speak also French, some Portoguese and a a bit of Spanish and German). We believe you could have a great experience. In Summer there are lots of cultural events going on in the center of the town and in Tuscany. This Summer there's also a special Art event " Biennale d'architettura" in Venice if you like.

A Bus stop just outside our house and in 5-10 minutes to Lucca City center or 30 minutes to Pisa's. You can reach Florence by trainin 1 h .and 1/2. Being at the seaside by train in 30 minutes. We are used to go to the magic Baratti seaside ( 100 Km far from Lucca). So we are in the middle of beauty of Tuscany.
