Haven't been on a bike in a few years, like 25, maybe. And I'd be pretty nervous riding one pretty much any place else in Italy! But touring the walls this way was really fun... read more

Haven't been on a bike in a few years, like 25, maybe. And I'd be pretty nervous riding one pretty much any place else in Italy! But touring the walls this way was really fun and very safe after crossing 1 slightly busy street. I recommend if you don't want to take the time to walk all the way around,... More

For someone from Australia with its limited European history - not to forget the 40000 years of aboriginal occupation and history - the walls were just fascinating historically. Without any time to go into it in detail, my thought, however, was who/what had to be kept out or who/what had to be kept in? Irrespective, seeing the sixteenth century construction... More

I was amazed with the fortifications of the walled city of Lucca. Its guard houses/entrance points into the old city. Can imagine troops standing guard in olden times protecting the population. Having visited castles in Ireland & Scotland, thought on the work involved to build these walls. You can walk around the city on the wall, horse chestnut trees were... More

We hired a bike at 3E an hour and managed to cycle round slwly twice in under two hours admiring the sights on both sides. Defnatiely a lovely way to explore and save the feet. There are also car free tracks below the wall outside the city and parts of the inner area too. We were overtaken by a motorcade... More

Le Mura was the place I started each day in Lucca. Long walks, reading on benches, watching locals...

Lucca is a very pretty place to visit and the walls surrounding the town are really more like a park. There are many trees and seating areas. Its a great place to walk, cycle, jog or just meet up with friends to relax. There are in fact older Roman walls within this walled town but these are just a few... More

A slow walk around the whole of the Lucca wall was gentle and fascinating. So many different people of all ages. Bikes can sneak up on you, so keep aware of them. Enjoy the changing perspectives into the city centre and stop for food or a drink as you progress round. A must for all Lucca visitors.

Walking the walls of Lucca is a relaxing way to explore the city's outer walls. The walls are a little over 4km long which made a great route for a morning run and then a later walk with the family; stopping off for coffee and lunch in the restaurants along the way.

The views of historic Lucca & the surrounding panorama of Tuscany are so beautiful from here. Even in mid-summer with many tourists there is room to stroll, & it's fun to people-watch, especially in the evening when so many local families are walking. Such a cool place (& designed by Da Vinci)!

It is great just to stroll around the walls and you see some things that you cannot see on the ground. Lots of people of all ages cycling and walking, if you can't manage the whole distance you can get off and finish it on another day.
