Do not miss the "Luminara di Santa Croce" on the 13th of September at Lucca, starting around 8 pm. Thousands of candles are lit for a traditional procession which is many centuries old. It goes from the Church of San Freddiano (near the Anfiteatro) to the Cathedral of Saint Martin. "Lucchesi" from all over the world come specially to their capital for this important celebration. This year there are delegations from Europe, North and South America and Australia participating in the procession. Here is some information from Council Luminara Santa Croce (sorry, it is in Italian, but if you Google "Luminara Santa Croce" you will find plenty of information and pictures.
Here is a little sample of what you will see

It was a magic evening. Well worth attending. Strongly recommended... for next year. It is always held on the evening of the 13th of September.
