“superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Hire a bicycle and tour the walls for breathtaking views of the town. They are intact. Then visit the Duomo and the churches of San Michele and San Frediano.

“Must do when visiting Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Best view - stroll Lucca's circumference, while overlooking it, from its Rampart.

Very wide, open spaces with plenty of green areas and benches to relax and have a peaceful picnic. Wonderful and relaxing way to build an appetite for any of the dining choices Lucca has to offer.

“Medieval walled city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Going through the main gates we were intrigued with the large gates and portcullis. Outside the walls the pavements had beautiful pink rose displays. The walls were very wide with trees adorning them, and wide enough to drive around a few cars abreast. People were enjoying the empty areas, lying down reading with their pets. The town had a large piazza, with statues and plenty of pigeons. Nice floral welcome sign on the grass. Shops and restaurants were plentiful and quaint. Worth seeing.

“Interesting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Visit this town.

Roman based with later additions but basically unspoilt.

Head for the tower with the trees on for inceadable views and take walking shoes to go round the ramparts!

I suggest eating in the old amphithetre piazza...actually more oval rather than square
