In the historic centre of Lucca you will find the "Piazza Anfiteatro" which was originally a Roman Amphitheater. Nice place to seat and have a meal or a drink to watch the locals pass by and enjoying the lovely Italian view of clothes hanging from the windows and little shops.

The Piazza Anfiteatro is a great place to have a meal and watch the world go by. There are probably at least 10 restaurants to choose from and we didn't have a bad meal in any of them. We ate in the Piazza on four evenings and we really enjoyed it

Quaint and lovely atmosphere. Some resteraunts and bar's. Nice to walk around. From here you can access the local shops. Go through the archway, which circles around the piazza.

We worth visiting. Old Roman amphitheatre converted to homes and resturants. Very pretty and resturants not bad for a tourist hot spot. Some have misters to cool off in the heat.

Temperatures were extremely hot on the day we visited Lucca so the Cafes are situated in an ideal location within the Anfiteatro to purchase a cool drink , then sit back and watch the crowds walk by. Horse and carriage rides available from within the circle of buildings or bicycles, as well as several small shops, cafes, or bars on... More

My friend and I hired a flat in this beautiful piazza. It is built on the original Roman amphitheatre. The lower level is full of cafes, restaurants, and the most wonderful delis - we were spoiled for choice. Our flat was on the third level - a great viewpoint. During our stay the piazza was being used for a flower... More

Loved spending some time here grabbing an espresso, a glass of wine, and some fried porcini mushrooms. Great for people watching!
