Walking the Walls

This is always a wonderful experience. It is perfect in any season. We walked, jogged, and rode bikes and loved it.

I think that a walking on the city wall is the best way to start the Lucca sightseeing. About 4 kilometer large wall surrounding the ancient city's center will allow you to see the scenery of the historical buildings and churches from a really different and breathtaking view . The wall are the favorite place of gathering among people ,... More

We enjoyed walking the walls of Lucca in the late afternoon and watching the sunset. A very relaxing walk (about 4 kilometers) and an interesting perspective looking down into the city below. Beautiful trees, benches, and even a few flowers left in late November.

Lucca has a city wall which goes right around the city with gateways for access from the outside. On sunday there is a market below the wall which also seems to go right round the city. Impressive!

We four 70 year olds rented a bicycle for 4 and cycled round the walls. It was hysterical fun. Two of us could only reach the the pedals by sitting right forward. But such fun.

We rented bikes to ride around the city walls. You can rent bikes for 3 Euros per hour. They include a bike lock. You need a photo identification to rent a bike. Since it was a chilly day, we only rented bikes for one hour, which was more than adequate to circle the entire city. Once we completed circling the... More

This walk is supposed to take about an hour but there was so much to see we took and hour and a half. My idea of city walls is a stone wall with a rubble center then an interior wall holding it all up. Lucca's walls are nothing like that. They are wide enough to drive on. It is a... More

Beautiful wide shady tree lined walkways are truly the tops of the ancient city walls of Lucca. Begun in the 2nd century BC and finished in the 16th century, the walls (le mura) and gates are an awesome sight to behold from street level. But the best part is that you can walk on these wide walls. Not crowded -... More

When in Lucca---a must see!!!! A peaceful walk and beautiful tree lined path. Put enough Euro in the meters so you don't have to run back to reload.
