  • Is the main square of Lucca, occupies most of the area of the fortress of Augsburg, which covered about a quarter of the city, destroyed in 1370. Napoleon's square was designed to give greater prominence to the Doge's Palace in the Center had to be placed the statue of Napoleon, it was never performed in his place to Maria Luisa di Borbone.

  • This huge square is the heart of the city, with many bars, benches and trees. It is very nice, ideal for a relaxing break.

  • I think that's the biggest square of lucca, the setting is gorgeous, in winter there are various stalls and a Skate Park, and this year I have noticed even a carousel. Quiet and family friendly.

  • Lucca! Lucca! Lucca, I love you! What a beautiful place on earth. I have spent a whole day there and it was not enough. I have enjoyed the flair of that town with beautiful views, wonderful people, good food and good mood. The town is really worth to visit and one should consider to stay at least a week there ...
  • This large plaza changes constantly. One day it may be host to a mercato featuring clothes, food, and trinkets. A few days later you may find the filled with people scurrying about. In one month of the summer it is fenced off for the thousands who attend the many concerts. Winter finds it in its holiday splendor with decorations, music, and a large ice rink. No matter when you visit Lucca, you will find restaurants, coffee bars, and lots of activities.
  • Pop up skating rink and winter market..fun!
  • Very nice square in the old town Lucca within medieval walls. Ducal palace and lots of cafeterias and small restaurants.
  • Lucca Comics and Games was being setup so it detracted from the historical aspect. Overall nice visit though.

Where to stay in Lucca

Explore northern Tuscany from a hotel or B&B located in Lucca's historical town center. The city's luxury lodging options offer free parking and access to outstanding downstairs eateries. 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.
