    We stayed a few days in Lucca and had very relaxing and peaceful mornings biking on the walls. The fresh breeze in May made it even more pleasant.

    We really enjoyed this, the climb was actually super easy. It was way more crowded and actually quite small at the top, that did surprise me. I loved looking at all the cool roof terraces, and it is always neat to see birds flying below where you are standing. The information along the walls as you are climbing the stairs is interesting as well, it is definitely worth the time to check this out.

    This family run winery is the perfect way to spend an evening in Lucca! The wines are exquisite and the experience (and price point) CANNOT be beat. Beautiful views and lovely conversations, as everyone there was incredibly kind and fun to talk to! Make sure you come hungry as they pair each wine with delicious food and the portions are very generous.

    Stopped for a quick drink in this central piazza. Lovely staff, quick drinks, and a great spot to break up exploring the city.

    I can take opera or leave it (although some of the music is well known outside the opera house), but when in Lucca, this museum is fascinating, We bought our tickets at the office & bookshop on the plaza (Piazza Cittadella; where the Puccini statue is), and the museum is well-marked on a street off of it. We walked up a long flight of stairs to the museum (there is a lift, but we read later that it has to be booked to use "at least 2 days before the visit" at the ticket office. We were welcomed by a very knowledgeable staff person who would occasionally stop in a room to tell us about something special (it wasn't crowded). We wandered around the rooms, following the map. Many items of the era and Puccini's life and creative works were displayed. Of particular pride was the Steinway piano and autographed scores and markings of modifications or interpretations. The 1926 costume of Turandot from the NY Metropolitan Opera amazing even to a opera neutral such as me. We saw the upper room (garret?) where he composed and could just see the "angel" statue over the rooftops from the Cathedrale San Michele--an inspiration. I've been to many homes of significant authors and composers, sometimes disappointed and sometimes inspired myself; this one was worth the time and entrance fee.
    [The map/program says no pictures or video recording, but the staff person said it was okay.]

    Great place to get personalized items to take home. Mario does the embroidery while you watch. Towels, baby blankets and bibs, so much more.

    This Palazzo has one of the most beautiful gardens, with statues from Greek and Roman mythology, that you will see. The house was an interesting display of life in the eighteenth century, but was overmatched by the garden.

    Right by one of the entrances to the wonderful wall encircling the old part of the city, lies this basilica. While not as spectacular as the San Martino Cathedral, this is a solid choice for a visit. It’s a way older church with some very impressive mosaics on the top of the front of the building, good paintings and just a nice serene atmosphere. You will probably speind 10 minutes here, 15 at most. Did I mention it’s right near the wall?

    We climes this the day after climbing the more famous Lucca tower, it is much smaller but still has interesting information along the walls during the climb. The views from the top are just as special, but there were way less people which was a treat for sure. One thing to know is that you actually can not buy your ticket here, you buy it at the other tower.

    Great morning activity. Right behind the train station you can start this easy to follow path right next to the aqueduct. The path runs on the West side of the aqueduct, so do this in the morning. This way, you'll walk in the shade of the monumental structure. It might get a bit hot once the Sun hits the pathway at around noon. It's surprising how fast you leave behind the busy streets of Lucca and hear nothing more than ciccades and birds (once you've crossed the highway that is). Great activity if you want to mix it up a bit.

    Superb small museum, recreating 2000 years of the city's history. The museum is very small, but shows the remains of a Roman house (domus) found in the foundations of a modern building. The guides are very erudite and give many explanations about the history of the city. I highly recommend visiting the museum

    I think this is the most interesting church to visit in Lucca. Now it works only as a museum and is not a church, but you can climb the tower from where there is a wonderful view of the whole city. The most interesting is the dungeon, where there were excavations and you may see the layering of different cultures from Roman times, through the Middle Ages to the present day.
