Narrow streets and some confusing directions could not take away from this lovely walled town. There are endlss places to eat and we found ourselves outside a small hole in the wall bakery. With just two... More

Wanda Martinelli was a fantastic guide who was very knowledgeable and proud of her city. My wife's family is from the Lucca area and Wanda made a point to help us see and understand Lucca and the surrounding communities. We enjoyed learning about Lucca and spending time with Wanda. If we make it back into the area, we would definitely... More

We were late to our tour and she nonetheless sent us to a very good local restaurant and later met us for the tour. If looking for a guide, you... More
