There are very few other countries which can rival Italy when it comes to unspoilt architecture and atmospheric, faded grandeur. The big 3 cities of Rome, Venice and Florence are obvious examples which are besieged by tourists year in and year out. As well as those 3 tourist trail giants there are countless other perfectly preserved cities and towns all... More

Taking a stroll or going for a run over Lucca's skyline is the best thing to do in this great medieval city. Not to be missed.

Lucca is defined by the rampart that surrounds the historic city center. Rent a bike, take a stroll or just sit on a bench and watch the people go by. There is nothing quite like Lucca.

Lucca is a small city with a big reputation. It’s a popular tourist stop for a couple of reasons. The first and most unique is the lively pedestrian walkway built above the street, on top of the city wall that completely surrounds the city. Lucca has survived a lot of history and often it shows in its maze of narrow,... More

We hired a bike & rode the 4 people bike around the old city walls. The sights and the parks surrounding the wall are beautiful. It was nice seeing many families enjoying this impressive monument.

If you are from Lucca you will walk/run/ride on the walls a million times in your life time. It's a must do to really immerse yourself into the feel of the city. Do a "giro" (round) during day light.

Although we adored this little town, we were absolutely exhausted and hungry. The Pisa and Lucca tour started at 8:15am and ended at around 7:45pm. We were not prepared for such a long day. Lucca is a gorgeous place. Lots of shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants. Plenty of tourist attractions but be prepared to do a lot of walking. We... More

What is Luca famous for? It's perfect city wall. So you just have to walk around it's 4km length. To be honest it's not as dramatic as others (e.g. Dubrovnik) because it's simply too big. It's more like walking on a long embankment rather than a wall. Just take your time, amble along and people watch.
