“Nice walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The walls surround the city and can be travelled by bike or on foot. In fact you will see a steady stream of runners and joggers. Here and there sections of the walls dip to the original tunnels and chambers used throughout the city's history. One of these sections even contained a small exhibit of statues and models depicting attractions within the city and how it changed over time.
The view is beautiful, you can see most of the inner city inside the walls and the mountains outside.
As a nice way to close or begin a trip to the city, I recommend the walk; it's even possible to rent a bike to get around that way.

“non conquered walled city, Lucca Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

You can certainly see why no one could conquer the old walled city of Lucca.

It is a great site to visit and spend time walking along the top of the wall, or bike (they rent them there). Like all of Italy this site is second to none. Don't just stick to the wall, walk in the old city and get lost in it. You will find your way out, don't worry.

Hungry? go to Ristorante Bucadisant, one the best of the best 5 star restaurant I have ever experienced.

Cheers

“bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

our host borrowed us some bicycles. Since we didn't have much time to stay around lucca it was perfect to visit by riding a bike!! Ride or walk on the walls to get a general idea of the city!
