From all the photos, I didn't realise that you can actually walk/cycle/run on the top of the wall. The wall is very wide allowing one to enjoy the city of Lucca from above. My husband and I rented bikes for 2 euro for an hour at the info centre near the Western Gate. The people at the info centre (who were extremely helpful) suggested we avoid cycling through Lucca given the high volume of pedestrian traffic so we stuck to the path on the wall. You can do on lap on the bike in 30 mins (at slow pace). We did two laps. Peaceful, relaxing, romantic, fun...enjoy!
