“Great walk and orientation of Lucca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We Took this walk of about 4klms for the lap of the old wall surrounding Lucca's old city. It was a fine sunny but chilly morning and there were lots of locals walking, jogging and cycling with us. The history is palpable, the views serene, and the experience both very relaxing and inspiring. Take the walk...

“This is Lucca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

You simply cannot come to Lucca and not take in the wall. However you enjoy it - walk, jog or bike - it is what Lucca is all about. The entire path on the wall around the city is a paved parkway lined with trees and spectacular views of the city. It is 4 km (2.5 miles) around, so a bike ride takes about a half hour. But you'll probably want to stop a time or two and just enjoy the view. Take a picnic lunch and do a little people-watching. The ramparts are very unusual - this city wall escaped being bombed during WWII, so it is perfectly preserved and maintained. Don't miss it.

Don't miss the wall around Lucca....any time of day is perfect. It's easy and cheap to rent a bike too.

“The Highlight of Lucca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

It was a picture perfect day so we were able to see Lucca from above in all it's splendor. Each vantage point offered something different and it was fun to just people watch.

“Running around the city walls”

Running around the city walls was so relax and a good trainning :) You can hire a bicycle and get around or you can walk , but it takes you around 30-40 minutes.
