Ride a bicycle or walk around the wall, it's one of the best things to do and best ways to see the city.

You can quickly have an impression about the entire city - it last not more than 30 to 40 minutes to complete the tour.

The walk round the city wall is certainly recommended - even if you can't do the full circle. There are plenty of places where you can walk up to the top. The effort to have made this centuries ago must have been huge but in addition to providing great security to the city but today offers a lovely wide area... More

It's a lovely walk around Lucca. It gives you a good overview of the city and lovely views of the countryside too. There are lots of places to stop and sit along the way. There were lots of people cycling bikes and there was no shortage of places to rent bikes from. We enjoyed strolling along slowly. There's plenty of... More

You can join the walls at various points. The walls are wide and you can cycle or walk. You have a great vantage view of the inner city and can see the "tree tower" and clock tower at certain times. The whole walk is just under 4km and is flat so fine for buggies etc. Rather good restaurant just near... More

Beautiful sights. Rent a bike and do a full circuit around the beautiful city walls. There are stands along the path and a lovely atmosphere. Free and fun.

It is quintessential Lucca - a walk (or bike ride) around the Wall is a must. Don't be a doltish tourist - consider this is a transit way for commuters on their bikes and do not walk 6 abreast forming a human wall as you walk - or suddenly pull a U-turn on your bike with no signalling - so... More

The stroll would be enough to top off a great afternoon - but we came upon a loud sound of trumpets coming from street by the Duomo - and soon realized we will have a rare treat. Lucca hosted a crossbow tournament, complete with historical costumes, ancient weapons, priest's blessing, and serious competition. It looks like everyone involved was immensely... More
