It is definitely a wall, still, term "wall" can be a bit misleading in this very case. Consider it a local road shaded by the trees that happens to located on top of a wall and closed to regular traffic. Plenty of space, no pushing through the crowd. I would suggest hiring a bike and using Le mura di Lucca... More

This is the real 'oddity' of the town, the medieval gigantic wall around it. it is a place of relaxation and exercising and wind-up on hot summer evenings, when there's not too much wind. Here you can have a nice breeze and see the local life, perhaps better than down in the center..

Hire bikes for 2 hours to cycle round these ancient walls. I guarantee you will get off and go and look up the history of this amazing city. Never experienced anything like the walls anywhere else, fantastic.

The walk around Lucca offers great views - just a delight!! About 4.2 km and a lot is under trees - good if it is hot. Highly recommend it. Can be done by foot or by bike - bike rentals are very close by.

Grand city walls that you can walk and cycle around. Highly recommend. We travelled around in a five person bike an amazing experience. Great experience. Whilst we were there, parts of the route were closed to the bigger bikes/ trailers. Finding family bikes after 11 am is hard.

We loved it. It's the charm of the city. You have to enter and exit through it, and each time you can find a new entrance or stair to know a little bit more of it. It's so much beautiful in person than in pictures. The few days we stayed in Lucca, we worked out here, biked here, we had... More

A great place for a stroll or bike ride anytime of day. Scenic views all around the city. The mura goes completely around the city of Lucca and a leisurely walk takes about an hour. Highly recommended!!!

Going round the 4km city walls is unmissable, whether on foot, bicycle or other means. There is welcome shade from the many mature trees, a unique perspective on the city within & the hills without.

Must do in the evening during the cool of the day. Well worth hiring a bike to do if fit. Ready for ice cream on completion.
