Broad avenue overlooking Lucca

A beautiful walk on the top of the walls of Lucca. Great views of the surrounding countryside, plus easy access into Lucca itself.

For your first visit, you'll be surprised to see a good example of old walled city and still lives as an integral part of the whole that defines Lucca.

The wall is really well preserved and allows people to have a great view over the landscape (inside and outside of the wall). It was a shame that we had bad weather that day, because I think it would be lovely to rent a bike and ride there.

This was a great place to walk and run. Wide open space with plenty of room for all people and dogs. Very beautiful views and great surface. Total distance is just over 4 Km (2.5 miles) around. There were many places to go into the city while going around the wall.

Walking or running along the entire circle of walls around Lucca. Not the usual walls I must say, much wider than expected, you can also decide to get down when you have enough and enter the town for a good cup of hot chocolate (in winter)

The ancient Tuscan town of Lucca has a fully intact wall, surrounding the town, and dates from the Roman era. This is unlike anything I'd seen before. You enter by stairs or ramps at various spots around the town. It is about 2 KM if you walk all the way around. We stopped to people watch, listened to a band... More

Lucca is an amazing, walled city and has the feel of going back in time. The weather was a bit rainy when we pulled into the parking lot, so we only were able to walk for a bit, but I could see how this could be a great day with a bottle of wine, food, and bikes. TIP, bike shops... More

A must do if you go to lucca. It is a fast way to get to different places in the city, but also great for a stroll with family or friends to see the sights. My friend and I bought some food at a market, rented bikes, and had a picnic where we saw fit. It was truly amazing!

Lucca is a fortified town with walls 30m deep at some parts. Around 2km walk with regular coffee stops available for those with limited mobility. Flat, easy ground to walk, soak up the lovely Italian sunshine and get some fresh air!

It isn't often that the walls are the most useful and enjoyable part of a holiday, but in Lucca it is true. We walked them, ran them and cycled them several times - on top and around the outside too. A trip around the walls is the quickest way to appreciate the size and sights of Lucca - it is... More
