“A lovely way to see Lucca and the Lucchese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The (very thick) walls around the old part of Lucca can be easily walked in less than an hour, or you can stroll up and down the ramparts and drop into various parts of the city that take your fancy. All of Lucca life can be seen up here. If you don't want to walk you can hire a bike for one, two, three, four, five or even six... You might have seen the walls of Lucca on Top Gear when James May drove on to them while trying to find his way out of the narrow, twisting alleys of Lucca.

“Not medieval”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

These are the early 17th century walls, which is why they are so nice to walk or cycle around. Wide enough for a proper road and with the forts and gates supporting gardens they are a fantastic way to spend time understanding the layout and environs of the city, or just to have a picnic or chill out.

“View the old city from above”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The mura/city wall is a great place to walk or bike around the entire old city center. You can take a ramp down to the center if you see something that appeals and then walk back up to the wall. The views are fantastic and the pace is whatever you want. During our walk there was a Mercedes Classic Car rally with the cars parked in the Amfiteatro.
