It's a lovely walk around Lucca. It gives you a good overview of the city and lovely views of the countryside too. There are lots of places to stop and sit along the way. There were lots of people cycling bikes and there was no shortage of places to rent bikes from. We enjoyed strolling along slowly. There's plenty of... More

You can join the walls at various points. The walls are wide and you can cycle or walk. You have a great vantage view of the inner city and can see the "tree tower" and clock tower at certain times. The whole walk is just under 4km and is flat so fine for buggies etc. Rather good restaurant just near... More

Beautiful sights. Rent a bike and do a full circuit around the beautiful city walls. There are stands along the path and a lovely atmosphere. Free and fun.

A 4,2 km Le Mura around Lucca city, perfect for evening or morning running tour. Nice view, water taps on the wall and good running space Karl

It is quintessential Lucca - a walk (or bike ride) around the Wall is a must. Don't be a doltish tourist - consider this is a transit way for commuters on their bikes and do not walk 6 abreast forming a human wall as you walk - or suddenly pull a U-turn on your bike with no signalling - so... More

The stroll would be enough to top off a great afternoon - but we came upon a loud sound of trumpets coming from street by the Duomo - and soon realized we will have a rare treat. Lucca hosted a crossbow tournament, complete with historical costumes, ancient weapons, priest's blessing, and serious competition. It looks like everyone involved was immensely... More

People watching or simply getting from A to B, sitting to read in the leafy shade or cycling, views of gardens, roofs and spires or views of the mountains ... what not to like?

Put on your comfortable shoes, take your time, people watch and enjoy...this is one of the best city wall walks you could ever wish for...cool shading trees, roads down into lucca all around the small city...interesting historical places at every turn....just the best way of getting "around" the city!
