A great place to meet people visiting Lucca from all over the world. Food is more affordable than you think and there are some outstanding gelaterias worth checking out. These houses were built around an ancient Roman amphitheatre which gives this piazza its unique shape. Definitely worth the visit.

Every night after dinner towards twilight we would find ourselves in Piazza Anfiteatro eating gelato and letting our kids run with all of the other children. It was a beautiful setting to end each day and let our kids play.

Having dined near the Dom, we ambled back through the town to pick up the car at Porta Santa Maria stumbling into the amphitheatre on the journey; it was magical in the dark with all the restaurants around the periphery, families with children playing in the middle and the washing hanging out of the windows all around; Italy in a...

Our B&B was right on the piazza anfiteatro and we loved it for the views at breakfast and also we woke up very early to get good pictures in the morning. However, when crowded this place is just another with many restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops !

After riding bikes around the wall and shopping nearby, went to the piazza for drinks before dinner. A number of places to eat and have a drink. Just pick any plus shops both inside and outside. Definitely worth the visit and really just a short walk from the main entrance to the old town
