You don't get lost since you start and end at the same place. It is a nice walk where you see the locals doing their healthy walk or run. You also enjoy the view of Lucca from the perimeter, it's narrow streets, the old buildings and the parks.

Couldn't convince my husband to rent bikes, so we walked instead. Incidentally, I would definitely recommend bikes because it is a long walk! Despite that, it was lovely walking the walls under the shade of trees and exploring the little parks clustered along the sides of certain sections of the wall. We saw people sun bathing, having picnics, and kids... More

We had a warm sunny afternoon with a slight breeze, our start point was Porta Elisa we could see both sides inside and outside the walls. The view was fantastic we saw local people and tourists having a good time, this is a must done when in Lucca.

We rode our bikes around the wall and it was so peaceful and pretty. Many people were out walking or jogging and it made for a very pleasant atmosphere. Scenery is so pretty. Well worth the effort.

An absolute must, cycle or walk round the fascinating walls. Beautifully shady on a hot day. Children playing, elderly people sitting and chatting, couples cuddling, exercise types sweating on bikes, old gents slowly cycling home with the shopping, young mums pushing the baby. All of life is here, don't miss it.

Hire some bikes and gently ride around the city walls for a typically Lucchese experience. There are many interesting points of interest along the way. Most of the path is gentle and shaded from the summer sun. We have small children and managed to hire a surrey that fit all four of us. There were several playgrounds and fountains close... More

As two couples we hired a four wheeled bicycle to go around the walls. It was great fun to whizz along together seeing the great scenery from our vehicle. Needed a bit of wellie to get up the inclines, but rewarded when freewheeling down again. Sore btms.afterwards!
