You can see the whole city walking around the Wall if you want to got and idea of the Lucca people and monuments. The Bonapartes were reigned in here and it can be smelt.

Visit this town.

Roman based with later additions but basically unspoilt.

Head for the tower with the trees on for inceadable views and take walking shoes to go round the ramparts!

I suggest eating in the old amphithetre piazza...actually more oval rather than square

We walked the wall of Lucca. Even though it was raining, the walk was beautiful, not too taxing, and enjoyable. You can see the trees, the city within the walls, and locals walking their dogs. Took us about an hour to walk the entirety of the wall. This includes stopping and taking photos.

What attracts me to Lucca over similar sized cities such as, for example, Grosseto, is that Lucca is so lively and the public spaces are full of locals and tourists. During my recent trip to Lucca, I found that most "life" occurred within and on the walls (le mura) of the city. The walls are impressive to see themselves and are extremely well maintained. They form a walking/ cycling path and narrow park that frames the entire center, and offer several benches to sit and watch passersby. I fell in love with Lucca while walking along le mura on a sunny Sunday- and it was the life of the walls that will bring me back to Lucca someday soon!

Before visiting Lucca I had the impression Lucca was surrounded by a great China type fairly narrow and steep wall. Instead it is a wide built up rampart with paved road, enough for two way catr traffic, complete with trees and even a restaurant. The perimeter is only 4 km and many use the wall as a fitness track, cycling laps or just strolling. It is the highlght of a Luccan visit. If you have seen other walled towns, Lucca is the poor cousin. Its wall is its main attraction.
