My family really enjoyed a nice break from museums to rent some bicycles are ride around the walls of Lucca. We did two laps around the walls in one hour. Everyone was tired. Time for another gelato! There seem to be plenty of bicycle rental places. We rented from a place right near the train station. They had handy flip-map... More

Walking the two miles on the top of the ancient walls is a relaxing way of seeing the whole city. There are some spectacular buildings en route and you get a real feel for old Lucca. The forts along the wall are also especially interesting.

Stroll along the very wide area on top of the wall that surrounds the city, trees shade you, look over the edge of the wall and imagine anyone being silly enough to try to invade, although I can see why they would want to get inside this beautiful city!

The walls of Lucca are a welcome green oasis, particularly at the height of summer whenthe town is hot and crowded. You can stroll at a leisurely pace, stop for a picnic or at one of the restaurants, or just sit and read or watch the world go by. The views over the town are stunning.

Lovely and worth a visit. Lot of beautiful walks. We went on the train from Florence - takes about 1hr 30 mins depending which train you catch! Cost is an amazing 14 euros return.Recommend a visit.

Ride a bicycle or walk around the wall, it's one of the best things to do and best ways to see the city.

You can quickly have an impression about the entire city - it last not more than 30 to 40 minutes to complete the tour.

The walk round the city wall is certainly recommended - even if you can't do the full circle. There are plenty of places where you can walk up to the top. The effort to have made this centuries ago must have been huge but in addition to providing great security to the city but today offers a lovely wide area... More

It's a lovely walk around Lucca. It gives you a good overview of the city and lovely views of the countryside too. There are lots of places to stop and sit along the way. There were lots of people cycling bikes and there was no shortage of places to rent bikes from. We enjoyed strolling along slowly. There's plenty of... More
