Beautiful oval enclosed piazza, right in the centre of town, and a good place to relax at the reasonably priced cafes and bars scattered around. A real sun-trap!

This piazza is missing soul. It's a bit empty. The restaurants could make it a bit cozier. But its a got piazza to site down and watch tourist. Drink some wine or maybe a could beer :-) Plane your stay in Lucca

The small shops for jewelry, souvenirs and leather are nice and there you may find amazing gifts. You may enjoy this wonderful place by sitting on the benches and looking at the facades in joyful colors.

To be honest, we were not prepared very well, so we were quite surprised that the amphitheatre was not what we expected (actually we expected an old amphitheater) - but better. It was very interesting to see what the theater was turned into. It´s inside is quite commercialised, sure, but most tourist sites are, so...We had red wine in one of the bars there and we enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the extraordinary setting. Must be nice in the evening as well. Our guide told us that the Luccanese come here in summer when it´s extremely hot, because of the good ventilation it´s always a little bit cooler than in the rest of the city.Try it.
