  • Lucca's old town is surrounded by a fully preserved fortress ring, the city wall. In the shadow of age-old plane trees on the wide ridge of wall, you can circumnavigate the entire old town about 4,5 km and has a fantastic view of the historic old town with its red-roofed houses and on the outside on the Garfagnana, the Appenenin mountains to the North of Lucca. The entrance to the old town is one of the 4 gates of the fortress-like. Overall an impressive fortifications dating back to around 1600, the well documented Lucca then wealth through the silk trade. For me, Lucca to Florence, Siena and San Gimignano is one of the highlights of the Tuscany.

  • 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!
