  • If you happen to Lucca for a walk along the city walls is a must. Better if aboard a bike hire-bike hire in one of the many, near the walls.

  • The walls ... my walls ... a show about 3.5 km away where you get lost in every corner ... the ramparts ... children's parks, people walking dogs, people running ... I personally wouldn't change it for any reason. I love my lucca!

  • Beautiful wall all around the centre of Lucca. Lovely space for a run, walk or stroll.
  • Wall surrounding Lucca. It is a great walk on the top of it.
  • Fine walk in the shadows with a nice view
  • I have walked the walls by bike, since I'm completely passable on foot or by bicycle, surrounded by greenery, ideal for those who want to relax a bit. With a view of the historic center nothing short of amazing!
