“Interesting piazza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

We walked through this piazza surrounded by many shops and small restaurants. It was a Saturday, so we expected there to be much more activity there, but it was empty. Maybe we just came on a slow day. It was beautiful, just the same.

“Another thing to love about Lucca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Walking into this piazza is amazing. There is so much history here, but it is now a busy, vital place with very nice shops and several restaurants with outdoor tables. We took some time to sit with an espresso and enjoy the scenery on a sunny day. If you are lucky enough to go to Lucca, take the time to find this place and at least walk through.

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The Anfiteatro is 'must stop for everyone on a visit to Lucca! Great history, atmosphere and a gently respite in the middle of the City. The Piazza is a wonderful place to relax, sip a cocktail or coffee and people watch. Lots of little 'bodegas' around but we found the restaurants seemed to cater to the 'touristy' crowd - we found ventured further into the picturesque little side streets for all our meals!!! Never a bad meal in Lucca!!!

“Beautiful piazza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The piazza is beautiful - not built like an amphitheatre as you would imagine from its name, but as an oval circle. Loads of restaurants - but if you´re looking for good food in Lucca, this is apparently not the right place to look

“A great place to chill out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We love the Piazza Anfiteatro and go there often. it's a great place for people watching. There are some super restaurants with outdoor seating that serve really credible meals - we've had both lunch and dinner there and cannot complain. For shopping there are several interesting stores to visit.This is really a great place to chill out after sightseeing.
