The Old Town
Never, a holiday in Lucca, can end without one or more visits to the famous historical center.
There are tourist attractions of cultural importance, such as the wonderful walls of Lucca, the amphitheater, the cathedral of San Martino, Torre Guinigi, and we could continue for a long time.
The entire historic center is surrounded by walls, about 4 km long, which can be walked on and are prohibited to traffic.
You can rent bicycles or take a walk to get a splendid view of the interior and exterior of the city, from a very high and surrounded position from greenery, which makes this experience almost magical for those who have never tried it.
Coming down from the walls, from one of the many ancient stairways scattered along their entire length, it is possible to taste the typical products, even an ice cream or a granita in one of the many restaurants in the city.
Lucca is a traditional city, especially in the center, which however has made tourist hospitality one of the characteristics most appreciated by visitors. You will always find friendliness on the part of the citizens, who are always happy to be able to chat with tourists, also considering the small size of the center and the low population density.
The historic center of Lucca in spring is very lively throughout the week, but especially on weekends. In fact, it becomes an afternoon meeting center for more and less young people, who enjoy a walk among the shops and some snacks among the many refreshments. The walls are often used for running and fitness in company.
Even in the evening there is no shortage of meeting points, there are several pubs, the most refined wineries and luxury clubs, as well as historic taverns always ready to warm up the evenings of citizens and tourists.
