Lucca is a beautiful, peaceful and compact city to visit but the walls are the icing on the cake. A pleasant place to walk at any time of day offering great views of the city itself and the Tuscan hills beyond.

Just joggers and dog-walkers. Good for some quiet time, particularly at night, but not something out of the ordinary

This was such a relaxing day spent in Lucca. Rented a bike and rode along the beautiful paths and tree lined streets. The tree lined paths are so beautiful. A nice piece of nature that makes you feel like you aren't in the midst of busy tourist venues.

If I will go back to Lucca, the wall must be the most important reason. I enjoy riding bicycle on it, to stop in someplace and reading a book. Everything is so peaceful here, I love it.

Just had a holiday in Lucca and we walked on the wall most days.... it is wonderful. The views surrounding the city are quite spectacular and at this time of year the trees are in full leaf. Do not miss the opportunity!

Lucca is a lovely old town. We preferred it to Pisa although it doesn't have a leaning tower! There are lots of lovely things to see and do and walking the walls is certainly recommended.

Spend a peaceful hour or two strolling atop the walls of Lucca. Lovely shady paths, interspersed with children's playgrounds. Watch out for the cyclists and dogs!

Who could not enjoy the walls of Lucca, whether on foot, on bike, running or walking, it is such a delightful place. It's a great place too, to simply watch the world go by!
