“Very cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

The path on the wall is a beautiful walk. It's not too far from florence. For those who have the time, it's a nice place to visit.

“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.
