We enjoyed a lovely stroll atop this historic city wall. Beautiful trees lined the walkway which encircles Lucca. In times gone by these former battlements guarded the city from invaders. Today this peaceful setting is frequented by walkers, joggers, and bikers. A handy cafe, San Colombano, is located on the wall where we stopped for espressos. There are ramps along... More

The walk on the wall is the icing on the cake for this beautiful city. It's a must do if you're visiting, giving lovely views of the city from on high. There's enough room along the paths for walkers, cyclists and joggers. There are also places to stop and eat along the way as well as below in the surrounding... More

You can walk all around Lucca on these walls, it's shady, has a nice wind, so it's not too hot and..... you can hitch a ride with one of these crazy four person bikes that zoom around you all the time. It's most Irish tourists on them, so they're very friendly. If you start to sing "Will Griggs on fire"... More

The city wall round Lucca is amazing, beautifully preserved and a real asset to the town. You can walk or cycle (about 4 kms) on the wide path, there are shady tree-lined sections, there's a children's playground, there are cafés, monuments, beautiful back gardens etc, it's a wonderful touristic asset and not to be missed.

Gorgeous bike ride round the walls of the city today with the kids! Hired bikes from chrono bikes and headed up... Safe for the kids as no cars and we managed a quick drink at a cafe along the way .. Plenty of play parks to stop at along the way too

Explored Lucca for 4 hours. Walked and hired a family bike for a little adventure, great way to see the town. Lots of places to see, quaint little streets, towers, churches and plenty of places to eat.

There cannot be too many places where you can walk (or hire a bike and ride, also hiring a handlebar seat for your two-year old as our son did) all the way round a medieval city in completely traffic-free safety in the sunshine or the boiling heat!). Here it is possible. Highly recommended. Lucca is such a beautiful city -... More

A great way to experience the walled town of Lucca. Bring your water with you as you will get tired but it is worth the trip. Early in the morning might be best as it can get very hot in the afternoon sunshine.

The best way to see Lucca is by walking, running, or riding around the city on the top of the wall. It is a relatively short journey and they are numerous parks along the way for children to play or to picnic in. During our stay in Lucca we went to the top of the wall almost every day for... More

Great fun and a great way to see the city, we hired a family bike for 12 euros an hour, managed to go round the walls twice in an hour, bit hot but our 6 year old girl loved it, we ended up doing it again later in the week
