Wall tour. Get a bike and if you cannot get a bike go for a long walk! its a must do in Lucca! I recommend doing it early morning or at twilight for the best views over town and the very best light for the many pictures you will want to take.

This is a must while visiting Lucca. Walk, run or bicycle around the wall. Relax and enjoy the experience.

After my wife and I attended the Elton John concert in Lucca's Piazza Napoleone, we stayed overnight and decided to spend the following day, exploring this beautiful old town before catching our late afternoon train back to Florence and then to Venice. The hotel concierge recommended that we go see the medieval wall surrounding the town. Initially, his suggestion did... More

Nice walk under the trees. Lucca is a lovely medieval city to visit. It is surrounded by a wall taht it is so wide that you can walk on it and enjoy the views of the city and the outside of it.

Lucca is a special town, though there is a pop/rock music festival there in July that rather detracts from the quiet atmosphere. The walls are well worth promenading along. Very well preserved and good views into the historic centre.

Where else can you walk all the way round the walls of an early modern city? We walkd halfway round one day with many stops and detours, then I circumnavigated for my morning run the next.

Such impressive fortifications, and they are lovely to walk around, with good views of the city. There is quite a bit of shade and quite a lot of benches so you can take a breather when you fancy.

Take a stroll on the wall or cycle on it! It is good for a lazy day and is such a nice way to see the small city inside the wall. Lucca is a must see while in Tuscany! I almost don't want to spread the word, I loved it so much I wish it would stay uncrowded...

This was the highlight of our visit to the old part of Lucca. Inside the walls are all the shops and activity, but we much preferred the quiet stroll along the wall. We did not bring the right shoes for the walk, so I would definitely suggest something other than sandals, like trainers or good sturdy hiking shoes. The day... More
