Lucca

Lucca, the walled city

This ancient Tuscan city is situated near the Tyrrhenian Sea on the River Serchio. Founded by the Etruscans, it was claimed by the Romans in 180BC, and the city still has an ancient Roman street plan. It also has intact city walls dating from the Renaissance era, which now function as pedestrian walkways and cycle paths that circle the city.

A city best seen by foot!

Lucca is an ideal destination for those who love a good walk. The walkways along the city walls offer wonderful views of Lucca's historic centre, and visitors can climb several towers to get an even better view. The ancient heart of the city has been well protected by these sturdy walls, and the narrow streets are full of churches to explore and local treats to sample. Lucca is a city that encourages cycling and walking, and traffic is minimised by the layout of the solid Roman ramparts.
