Riding bikes around the walls of Lucca was definitely the highlight of the day for my kids, who said they enjoyed it even more than the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We rented bikes near the San Pietro gate for three euros an hour; we made it all the way around in well under an hour even with stopping several times... More

Had a pleasant run in the morning on this wall. My family and I rode bikes in the afternoon and my child said he wished we could do this everyday! Perfect area to relax and enjoy a nice bike ride and take in the sights. Would highly recommend visiting!

I hadn't been on a bike for some time so was just slightly apprehensive but my fears disappeared immediately we hit the road. I cannot emphasize enough how enjoyable a ride around the walls of Lucca on a bike is. It's all flat so you most certainly do not need to be hugely fit and by the time you've done... More

My sons and I have a home inside the historic walls of Lucca. Every morning begins with one of my sons waking me up and saying "let's hit the walls". We get dressed and get our bikes out on the street. We ride about three blocks pass coffee and pastry shops which contain my "rewards" for after the ride. We... More

We live in the hills of Lucca and always tell people to start their visit in the city on the historic and beautiful wall.

I have travelled to a hundred cities in Italy - including dozens in Tuscany - and have seen few sights that compare to the walls of Lucca. If you just visit the wall-top paths and parks, you'll see the whole city and some beautiful sights, but don't miss the underground experiences. The walls are also home to a tunnel and... More

We live in Lucca now and always tell people to start on the historic and beautiful wall. Walk once the 4.2 km. and get a overview of this incredible small town. Along the way, several fountains with free natural spring water. Another thing Lucca is known for, in addition to the historic wall. This town is not to be missed... More

Although it is fascinating to see the walls which totally surround the old city, we felt that they were so wide that they lost their impact as walls. We preferred the sites within the city. Having said that, it is worth walking at least part of the walls. They make a nice place to stop for a picnic, and watch... More

I loved walking the walls. I did it every day, sometimes doing the circuit twice. The broad path is well maintained, full of people who are enjoying the park-like atmosphere. Wonderful to be able to be part of local scene.
