Are there more beautiful walls in Europe? Walking the walls of a warm evening in Lucca is a wonderful pastime. The whole city is out walking, jogging, cycling. The atmosphere is glorious and the views splendid. Every so often is a bar to ease you into your evening... Simply lovely.

This enormous wall which stretches all around the town of Lucca is a wonderful walking, jogging or riding path. The tree lined path is perfect for an afternoon stroll after an Italian lunch. This wall has kept Lucca safe from invasions over the centuries making Lucca one of the few towns that never suffered any damage during the wars. During... More

Lucca is a medieval city with a wall that surrounds it. You can climb the wall and stroll around for the best views.

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). Pick-nick tables are available and free. You get a really good feel of how the town is build and the walls to protect the... More

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
