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.

The walls of Lucca are worth visiting. They are intact and you can walk all around. It is used by the locals to bike, run and walk.

This is a wonderful place to see some of the beautiful old buildings of Lucca as well as the towers that dot the skyline. It is 2.5 miles (4 km) so either be in shape or take your time. Of course you could rent a bicycle which is probably the best was to both the wall and the city.

Lucca is a wonderful interesting city and bike riding the top of the city wall is the ideal way way to gain a view of its size and see how the locals relax and exercise. There are many points to exit and enter the town from the wall and a great restaurant in which to rest and enjoy an aperol... More

We borrowed bikes from our hotel and rode around the wall stopping to look in at the city centre. There was lots of room for walkers and bicyclists - and many trees which was a major bonus given the hot day! Love it!

We stayed with some friends who were renting an apartment for 10 weeks in Lucca. Our week was the end of August/beginning of Sept and it was wonderful. Warm weather, lots of walking and shopping and simply enjoying the small town within the walls. Motor traffic is limited so the narrow streets aren't too crazy. Walking on the wall is... More
