  • The walled city walk! An easy walk, plenty of benches to stop, rest, admire the surrounds and the interesting gappy sculptures - all a part of the charm of Lucca. Definitely worth visiting!

  • We spent a couple of hours cycling around the walls of Lucca today. There are numerous bike hire places around Lucca both inside the walls and outside. We hired from Fast and Furious which is outside the walls. The circuit is about 4km around and very flat apart from the ramps up onto the walls which aren't very steep, but you can walk the bikes up if you need to. There are wide, tree lined paths which have people walking, jogging and cycling on them. On a weekday like today in September they were busy and it was a very relaxing way to get in some gentle exercise. Most of the cyclists are very relaxed and not whizzing around aggressively.
  • Another beautiful walled town but rather overrun with high end stores down every side street. The piazza has lovely shady trees covering it with musicians playing. Lovely restaurants on the perimeter. Enjoy a walk on the town wall
