The wall is one of the reasons we keep coming back to Lucca. We walk the wall everyday. The people of Lucca love their wall and why shouldn't they. Great place to walk, run, bike, and sit & read. There are no cars. Many views off the wall that never gets old.

Circumnavigate Lucca on foot or hire a bike, the wall is about 4 km long and is a lovely way to see the city. It is an easy walk with many places to sit and watch the world go by. A "must do" if you are in Lucca

There was a garden show on when we were there - eat your heart out Chelsea! Would have liked to have seen water in the moat!

What can I say, but it truly enjoyed biking on the wall in Lucca. While staying in Lucca, we rode bikes on the wall several times. It was on my bucket list and I am glad that we did it :)

One of Lucca's trademarks, a complete encircling wall planted with trees, good for strolling, walking a dog, cycling, sitting down to read or play chess. But perhaps not in the evening when scores of joggers pant and pound along, so much so that the mosquito population seems to have prospered and multiplied.

The walls and the popup entertainment are the heart of the town. Watch for small posters in Italian, they tell you what the information center can't. There is something on, usually free or for a small charge, every night

Bikes easy to hire and safe to ride around the walls and on town. Extramural biking is another thing entirely as flat roads are very busy and hilly roads are very steep so for serious cyclists only.

These are the historic walls that help give central Lucca it's charm and character. The walls provide a great place to stroll, cycle or run and it is possible to walk around the whole city here. At some points there are other fortifications and armaments many of which appear to be being used by the local contrada which is rather... More

So. Rick Steeves says there's nothing to do in Lucca. WRONG. Biking around the old walls is amazing. Unique round town "square", great cafés, gelato, limoncello. Tip: go a few blocks left after entering the main gates to rent bikes for half the price of those located by the main gate (€3/hour).

The walls are one of the reasons Lucca is such a special place. They are 2.6m (4.2km) around, and perfect for walking, jogging or cycling. There are plenty of bike hire places nearby, and you can finish your circuit with some well-earned gelato. You get onto the walls in several places by gently sloping paths, and once you're up there,... More
