We were visiting Tuscany and a number of people told us 'we must see Lucca.' Well, after visiting towns like San Gimignano and Siena, it was a bit of a letdown. The town is cute and full of color but it lacks the charm on of the hilltop towns.

It´s a nice Wall to walk or cycle around. Limits the older city with the new one. You can see a lot of people jogging or walking. Very nice.

My wife and I did the walk around the city on the great walls of Lucca and really enjoyed it. It was a beautiful autumn day and the walk was exhilarating. The tree lined stroll is truly lovely and well worth doing. An amazing experience. Beautiful views and a very pleasant walk.

This is a great place to see the inside the walls of Lucca. It is also great for walking, jogging and a leisurely bike ride. There are no cars allowed except for service vehicles so the road, which is wide as a 2 car lane, is very safe to take a stroll after dinner and enjoy the views of the... More

We went to Lucca as part of our holiday in Florence. Since it was autumn, the walk around the walls was lovely with all the brown leaves falling from the trees. Really lovely place for a nice walk, a bicycle ride or a jog.

We rented bikes and rode around the 2.5 mile wall surrounding the old city of Lucca. Absolutely beautiful fall day. There are multiple parks and picnic areas atop the wall, and we selected one to stop for lunch. Well worth your time if you're in Lucca. There are bike rental facilities all over town.

The broad, renaissance wall surrounding Lucca is touted as a favorite place to bike or jog., but if you don't do that there isn't much to see or do here. Pleasant tree-lined path and occasional park-like stopping areas. Lots of folk rent bikes to peddle the circumference--a lost easier for the visitor than trying to bike the crowded city streets....

We rented bikes -- there are several bike rental shops near the wall -- and rode the wall several times during our six-day stay in lovely Lucca. The 2.5 scenic loop around the walled part of the city was the perfect way to work off all that pasta and gelato we enjoyed and the ride afforded us great people watching!... More

Genuine medieval walls completely surround the city. A wide, tree-lined avenue means you can cycle or walk the full circuit of 4.2 km (years ago, cars were allowed on the road atop the walls, but not since about 1985)
