The walls of Lucca are a nice first way to get to know the city before diving in the narrow streets. We walked about half of the city walls. It is really quiet and you can keep in the shadow for a while on a hot sunny day. There are enough tiny streets, stairs and paths to go up or... More

The city of lucca is designed for the perfect bike ride. The walls are unique and beautiful and you wouldn't need more than a few hours to cover the city. The cathedrals and towers are good but similar to other italian cities. Nothing great there.

The wall around Lucca is pretty fantastic! When I initially saw it, I was excited to see what was on the other side but the coolest part was when we road our bikes all of the way around the top! The views of Lucca inside. Wall are breathtaking! Riding around the top, we were able to get a really great... More

I have studied the walls of Lucca in detail and they are fascinating as a defensive concept during their build in the 16th century . They provide a linear park for pleasure of both citizens and visitors.

The old town wall is a great spot to walk on or take a bike ride on top of it - it even has shady trees! Just loved it and great exercise after a nice lunch or dinner. Die alte Stadtmauer ist fantastisch - man kann darauf spazieren oder mit dem Rad fahren - es hat sogar Schatten unter den... More

Lucca's intact wall encircling the ancient city is a defining feature of this wonderful town. The entire community (and visitors) uses it as a recreational amenity, with parks and a wide non-motorized promenade overlooking rooftops for bicycling, jogging, or a stroll.

Lucca's walls are more like earthworks than a simple barricade. The top of them is a park - a wide pathway, with trees on each side. On one side you get views of the little old town of Lucca, on the other of the Tuscan countryside. It's a nice place to have a walk or a bike ride. I found... More

Rent a bike near the train station, and ride away! You actually can ride on the wall, which is as large as a street, and has trees on both sides. We rode at dusk/night, and the street lights, dusk sky and the general atmosphere were kinda romantic.
