Lucca for 3/4 days with teenagers

We are considering staying in Lucca for 3 or 4 days in June, on our 2nd trip to Italy. Is there enough to do to occupy us given my children prefer being outdoors rather than in museums/churches etc? We are flying into Rome and spending a few days there and then want to stay at one more location before heading to the Amalfi Coast. We stayed in Florence last time and also Greve, so want somewhere different this time. After a few days in Rome we will be ready for somewhere a bit quieter.

There are two towers to climb for great views and the walls are great for biking or roller blading. Walking outside the walls behind the train station, you could explore the aqueducts which stretch several km away from the city. You could take the train or bus to the coast for some beach time.

Biking the walls would be great with teens, or do a hike in the countryside. We did a day trip to CT via train--you can hike the trails there too.

I've often wondered where these aquaducts were ! Are they quite easy to find once you're at the station ?
