  • Very nice to bike over the wall. The many parks are delicious on a hot day with plenty of shady spots. You can on many places the wall so you can explore the city further. There are also several fountains so you can fill your water bottle again.

  • I recommend this route to visit the town with young children. We rented bikes and we were able to see Lucca from above, tirelessly and awesome every now and then to the numerous fountains. There are also restaurants and bars for lunch.

  • The walls of Lucca give you a great view of this remarkable city. Though it can be a bit of a challenge to get up to the walls if you have a stroller or something similar with you; walking around them is easy. Do watch your children as there a no fences that prevent them from falling off!
  • Great place to have a long walk or ride a bike. You can go around the city, which is approximately 3,5 km. Walk is easy and peaceful with a great views of the city.
  • Absolutely beautiful, makes the city even more charming
  • Wall surrounding Lucca. It is a great walk on the top of it.
  • Wonderfull botanic gardina

Where to stay in Lucca

To experience a little of that famous Tuscan countryside, consider booking your stay at a family-owned farm just outside Lucca. Though a bit far from the city's main attractions, small farms in the surrounding area offer inexpensive rooms, good food, and a chance to experience Tuscany's nature and local way of life.
