This is a lovely place to sit and take in the ambience and the sights and smells of Lucca. There are some excellent bars and delightful shops.

The piazza Anfiteatro is a great place to stop for coffee, lunch or even dinner, but is is nothing special.

Having read reviews and guide books we headed here when we arrived in Lucca. Well worth it! A number of cafes, restaurants and shops line the piazza. Great for people watching.

Visited Lucca on a tour with Tuscan Heart. The daughter of one of our party recommended visiting the piazza. What a little oasis in the town, numerous cafes, we chose on that offered shad and a cooling water spray on a scorching hot day. Over a wine and beer or two we watched the world go by. A great photo... More

We visited this Piazza...and in fact what you see is just a round plaza with a lot of restaurants and shops.

You can find this piazza in the north of the city. With it's interesting shape and nice buildings it offers a great place to have a dinner. The place looks better at night.

One of our favorite places in Lucca. Square that once was the Roman amphitheater. Still a central part of the city, with plenty of things happening: street musicians, cafes, restaurants. Great photo ops and people watching.

I have a colleague who grew up in Lucca and encouraged me to visit while on a recent trip to Italy. He recommended several things to do, and the anfiteatro was one of them. He said it was a great place to have a cup of coffee or glass of wine. I made my way here in the late afternoon... More

Is many times great, when you are traveling, to meet and see what the inhabitans of a place do on everyday bases because you understand better why the place look like it does. During the summer the Piazza is an ordinary place for tourists but, if you are visiting Lucca during the rest of the year, you'll see another kind... More

This is a square with several restaurants and lots of tourist. Worth a visit and great if you want to sit down with a drink and look at people.
