Use a bike (our hotel had free ones) if you can, or walk and take some breaks. It's an easy ride, I managed it when recovering from the flu, so don't worry if it has been a while since you cycled! Great way to get a feel of the city and see some of its landmarks. Couple of places for... More

A must do when in Lucca. Don't be trapped into doing a paid bike/walking tour. You can do this totally free or pay a small price to hire a bike and do it at your own pace. Its 4.2km around (according to google) and a great way to see the city from above.

I had never seen such an amazing city as Lucca, its walls sourrounding the historical city center were used to protect the people inside. Speachless !!!

This community, once the most powerful in Italy, was surrounded by walls. Now you can walk and bike that raised path around the city. I enjoyed an afternoon of biking by renting from one of the any retailers. What a beautiful view.

I rented a bicycle and had a wonderful ride on the Le mural, where you will have a great view of the town and enjoy moving around with joggers, dogs and people just strolling along. The wall is sensational by being so well kept during hundreds of year, cultural heritage of excellence.

To our knowledge one of the few totally preserved city walls in Europe. Some 12 metres high and four kilometres long the rampart runs around the whole city. It is so wide that there's a tree-lined 'boulevard' where you can stroll, bicycle, jog or just enjoy views to the historical city. Especially lovely for an evening walk, passeggiata.

We were looking forward to our visit to Lucca but when we were arrived were a bit disappointed that it just didn't "wow" us. Maybe it had been hyped up too much. The walls were a nice thing to do there--we rented a family bike and it was a nice way to see the city. Without this, Lucca would have... More

I liked the walls that surround Lucca's old Town as they are well kept and provide a way to get out of the cluttered streets of the old town.

Lucca is spectacular and seeing it from the top of the wall is unlike anything you will ever do. Bike rentals are cheap and the views are amazing. An absolute must.

Lucca was such a nice surprise for us. We stopped there on our way back to Firenze from Pisa and stayed longer then expected. The top of the city walls was turned into a huge park around the old town. Beautiful and peaceful and green. kids loved it and we loved the whole town. Beats Pisa with its leaning towe!
