  • Napoleon's square is located in the historic centre, 150 metres south of the Basilica of San Michele in Faro and in 200 m. to the West from the Cathedral of St. Martin. The area was founded in the early 19th century. In order to make this place the most impressive and ambitious demolished 16th century church tower, adjacent to the Palace of the elders, and private homes. After all of these buildings have been dismantled, it turned out that remaining on Piazza Napoleone builds its not especially decorate. It was then decided by the perimeter of the square planted plane trees, which now surround her tight ring. In the Centre of Piazza Napoleone is a monument, but not Napoleon, as it would be logical to assume, and Marie-Louise Spanish-Duchess of Lucca in 1815-1824. The monument stands in front of the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale Di Lucca), 1805-1814 was the residence of Napoleon's sister Elisa Bonaparte-former ruler of Lucca in those years. Currently the Palace houses several services, funds and institutions, including the historical Institute of Lucca. The square Napoleon seemed vast and desolate. No events that morning, fortunately, it did not take place, so take some pictures nothing.

  • However, more modern than the beautiful central piazza dell'anfiteatro. Is to visit! Recommended.

  • 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.
