Lovely Spot for some Lunch

Had lunch in one of the many pizzeria around the Piazza. Not cheap but worth a visit just to chill and watch the world go by.

We were there during the jazz festival with music every night and the resturaunts and icecream parlours open until the early hours. The cobble streets and archways are beautiful

The piazza Anfiteatro is a must place to visit while visiting Lucca. It's great to sit back and have a drink at one of the many restaurants, to people watch & dream of what happened in the days long ago. Amazing atmosphere.

As you enter through an archway you are met with a lovely piazza / square which used to be the old amphitheatre, no ruins here though, it surrounded by shops and cafe's and restaurants. Just to sit and relax at one of the cafe's was wonderful and allowed you time to just relax and soak up the history and atmosphere... More

We always enjoy visiting one of the cafes in this beautiful piazza for a coffee when wandering the streets of Lucca. During our stay they had live jazz concerts every night and the restaurants were packed. We have never eaten in any of these restaurants but we enjoyed the atmosphere in the evening.

One of a kind square! On warm days extremely hot, since no wind can blow in or out, but a definite must see on your Lucca trip

We went to Lucca for just one night. We stayed just at the anfiteatro. We went for a drink after dinner in one of the bars places here. And this night there was a concert with funky music....a place to relax....
