We cycled the walls on a Sunday morning, as did many other people from Lucca, but it was never too crowded. It was a beautiful autumn day and we had a nice lunch on one of the benches. Almost felt like a local :)

We walked around the walls on a Sunday morning late in the season (November) with a threat of rain but only a short passing shower. The walls are hugely popular with the locals and they are out there in droves walking, running and riding bikes. The walls date to the 1500s and replaced two earlier walls (Roman and Medieval) of...

The wall around Lucca is a main attraction, and it attracts locals and tourists in equal measure. We have been fortunate enough to have been in Lucca long enough to have seen the seasons change from late summer to fall, and watching this happen while circumnavigating the wall has been wonderful. We've walked the wall in all kinds of weather... More

We walked around the old city of Lucca on the wall. It was raining but still very pleasant. About 3 miles or so.

The walls of Lucca are great to bike around. At the main entry points of the wall, there are bike rentals. Some of them provide family bikes, for 2 adults 2 children or even 4 adults. Rent them for an hour and you can do the entire wall quite easily. When in a hurry, you can do it in 30... More

If you want to get to know a town, move in for a few weeks, bike and walk around. That's the story of Lucca. Ride or walk with residents every morning look at both rooftops close by and hills in the distance. After that, another coffee. Enjoy.

Rather than walk the whole wall in one stretch, we walked parts and then went down into the city to explore what looked enticing. We got lost a few times within the city, then found our way to the wall again and did another segment. This is such a different city wall from the steep steps and turns of others... More

Our decision to spend a night in Lucca was dependent upon the wall. We were not disppointed! You can walk about three miles and view Lucca! It is much nicer to admire the city filled with beautiful towers and churches from the wall. It is an easy day trip by train from SMN station in Florence!! Enjoy

The walls of Lucca are a beautiful place to paint, read or people watching. A quiet stroll or jog it is the hub of enjoyment in a beautiful city.
