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.

I had a free day whilst I was in Tuscany so thought I'd get the train over to Lucca for the day. The fare was incredibly cheap from Pisa and I reckoned it was worth a look. It ended up being one of my favourite days in Italy. The weather was gorgeous and I found myself walking along the wall... More

This is a great place to start your visit. I had my dog with me, so we parked and just walked the whole way around. There were parks, grassy areas with shade to just relax and read a book, and plenty of faucets to get fresh water. There is plenty of room for bikers and walkers on this promenade. It... More
