This seems to be the thing to do in Lucca. We hired bikes for 3 euro an hour...a bargain...and rode around the town on the wall. Excellent to do but make sure you do it early as it becomes very crowded as the day goes on.

Lucca's wall is one of its main attractions. If you don't grab a bike and cycle round it you are missing out.

Lucca is wonderful, and the best way to end a visit is to walk round the town on top of the walls. Tall shady trees, wonderful views of both town and the gardens, people walking, jogging, biking and picnicking. You don't have to do the whole town to enjoy.

Spending a day biking is Lucca was a beautiful way to enjoy this lovely city. We took the bikes outside the walls to follow the aquaduct for a stunning ride. Followed it with a ride along the wall, ended cruising the city. Worked up our appetites for some terrific food. One of our favorite cities in Italy

This wall is complete with trees and car free. Tree lined and plenty of places to relax, sit down and enjoy the view. There are several point where you can refill your bottle of water (free).

Incredible historic walls circling the whole of the historic centre of the city yet wide enough to support a road with pavements, trees, restaurants, houses,playparks and lots of joggers and cyclists. A wonderful experience and great photo opportunity.

visit Lucca and spend some time on the wall. Its about 2.5 miles to walk or ride, and there are plenty of people doing both. Wear some good walking shoes and take an awesome stroll around the city, or go to one of the bike rental places and get a great bike to ride. We only spent 6 Euros for... More

Great place to walk, jog, bike and people watch. A beautiful oasis in the city. Great views of the walled city and the city outside the wall.
