Walk or cycle for lovely views

We walked around half the wall taking about one hour. Great views of the city within and outside the walls. Very leisurely stroll or cycle

We cycled one way around the walls - and having enjoyed it so much, we decided to lengthen our ride and went back the other way round! A great way to relax while getting some exercise and watch families of all ages enjoying themselves.

A wonderful way to see the new and old town of Lucca. Rent a bike or bring your own and experience the cool breeze in the summer as you take a leisurely ride around the ancient city. You can rent family bicycles which are essentially a carriage with peddles or a regular bike. Aside from the novelty of the family... More

Hard to imagine that there is a shady and wide walk/cycleway atop the mediaeval city walls of Lucca, but they were built so thick that this is what they accommodate today. Lucca is a seriously delightful city, not inundated with large numbers of tour groups and therefore relatively quiet to explore and take in its many mediaeval beauties, and a... More

Really recommend walking or cycling the city walls in Lucca. We cycled as a family of 5 in 20 minutes. Shady and Cool most of the way round the circular walls. Bikes can be hired from various locations and we rented for 3 euros an hour for each bike. Very pleasant and will do this again at some point. We... More

A walk around Lucca on the wall is a must – do it in the setting sun in the evening. It is gives a good impression of the town from all sides – the walk takes 1-2 hour depending on walking or lingering. A walk around Lucca on the wall is a must – do it in the setting sun... More

Every time we walk the walls of Lucca, we marvel. This is where the lives of Lucchese happen, on these walls. They are the gym, the bike course, the walkers' paradise (no cars allowed), the place where friends gather and play board games and walk and talk together, the place for festas and great events like Murabilia (the huge garden...

I never tire of the tree-lined wall of Lucca. It is a constantly changing scene, and provides a view into and outside of Lucca, including of the hills beyond. Usually there is a nice breeze as well. Unfortunately, now that Lucca has become somewhat discovered, it is a bit more crowded than it used to be, but still well worth... More

feel the tranquility of Lucca on a walk in your own pace or a ride with bicycles that are available for rent - near the railway station.

I borrowed a Bike on the first day i arrived in Lucca (a total must). Cycling around the old wall allowed me to get a real idea for the atmosphere of the town. It also acted as a great navigational tool as you can use the little towers around the wall as a marker of were you are in relation... More
