  • even though our weather was chilly & dreary, this is a wonderful City to stroll through....no crowds whatsoever on Dec., 5, 2019.  more »
  • We were in Lucca in November, with many fewer tourists to dodge. We had the walk largely to ourselves; a few speed walkers, a few amblers like us, and a few bikers, but after a brief rain, the sun...  more »
  • Stroll, cycle, or run. Used by residents and tourists. Overlooks old city, and each section of the walkway is lined with different species of trees. Oak, plane, willow, poplar, etc. Very well...  more »

  • We walk around the walls several times during the week we stay in Lucca every September. A great opportunity for exercise and a great opportunity to take photographs of this beautiful and ever changing walled city. Depending on where the sun is it can look very different from the last time you walked the walls Watch out for runners and tourists on bicycles!
  • We spent a morning walking around the walls. The walk is superb with plenty of room on the walls which are paved all the way round. Getting on and off is accessible for everyone with good ramps and steps at may points all the way round. The trees provide plenty of shade and there are lots of benches all the way round to rest.
  • Perfect for a fitness walk or run, you can use the bike too but be careful of other people around. Full of places where you can sit, drink water or read a book. Enjoy it in spring or autumn when the trees change colors.
  • They're walls which you can walk on. People who don't know how to ride bikes are allowed to ride them here. We saw some fall over which was funny. The views are delightful.
  • Lucca is a very Beautiful Historical old Walled Heritage city. So much to see and do also a very central location to take day trips to Pisa or Viareggio.
