Are Mosquitos likely to be a problem In Lucca during early October ? Thanks
Why would it be worse than anywhere else? There are no big pools of stagnant water.
I doubt there would be a particular problem - but that’s not to say there won’t be any around.
My sister got some nasty bites a couple of years ago in late September but to be honest, she’s not sure if she got them just before we left the Ligurian Coast, before arriving in Lucca.
Personally, I would take precautions.
Thank you Maudsters for your helpful reply. We will take repellant with us just in case.
While I usually travel during the summer to Italy I have gotten bites many times in various places including Tuscany. Every time I get lazy with the insect repellant, I am sorry. I think some people are just more prone to bites and having their bites get infected and inflamed where they last for days. If you know that is you I suggest taking precautions.
There was a lot of heavy rain in Lucca last week, the water channels just outside the walls overflowed covering most of the adjacent grass areas so there might be some mozzies there. If you walk along Via del Fosso with the water course in the middle you may also come across some.
Yes, they seem to love us ! Thank you
That’s great to know. Thank you
