Wish I had allowed more time for strolling up on the old city walls. I hear it's 2 miles around the wall. We saw many locals heading from the train station towards the old city wall and didn't realize at the time that they were heading toward the hidden staircase that takes you up onto the city walls, where there...

Visiting Lucca..? This is a must do - hire a pushbike from one of the stores by the north exit 3 Euro / hour & take your time doing a couple of laps of the wall.. Great fun and nice way to see the city and get your bearings..

A very pleasant walk around the city, with it being autumn the trees were turning lovely colours. Lots of people using it, be it running, cycling or walking but never felt busy as the walk way is very wide and plenty of space so don't think you walking on a small wall around the city!

Great for a walk, if a bit too hot in July. :) Would be great to come back in the fall or maybe even spring.

The beautiful city of Lucca is surrounded by this wall that you can climb on and walk on. There are benches and tables if you want to have a picnic or play a game and enjoy watching the locals walking/jogging/biking. The canopy of trees is beautiful. Don't miss the sunset!!

The wall of Lucca is world-renowned, but you should not miss to take a walk through the tunnels. We found one underneath its south-western part. Cavalry apparently started surprise attacks from there. Amazing!

Pleasant walk and it was great to see families, cyclists, runners using the wall. Highly recommend this walk.

simply beautifull, ine should go and see for themselves. Spring, summer or fall, the walls and the sights it offers are amazing. You can easily walk or cycle over the walls and go alk around

Built over 500 years ago this well-preserved wall is a joy to see and experience. It’s about 5 kilometers around it. We chose to walk about half and then take a ramp downward inside the walled city. There are great views from atop the wall. It’a tree-lined boulevard. There were many bikers and walkers on our joyous day there.

Thank Newsboymac
