  • Part of San Martino package Spend some time to go through the Roman foundations underground No need to go up the tower (and the effort) if you already went up the Cathedral tower  more »
  • Full marks to Lucca for preserving this deconsecrated church and using it for musical performances. The church building itself is not very exciting, though they have opened up the crypt for visitors....  more »

  • Great location and a great experience!! I have never seen something like that in my life the autistic in a church is amazing. Well worth going too.
  • Don't how you can possibly give this church 1 star. I find this church peaceful even in summer. It isn't over adorned so I suppose if you need glitz go to Monreale. For me the archeological aspect makes this a must see site. The curators have tried to make the levels of Lucchesi life clear with colour coding and basic signage. So seeing remants of a Roman bath amongst bits of 8th century baptistry and a 5th C mosaic all below the church is my idea of exciting. It sets the imagination on fire....if you have one. Of course there are superior historical sites all over the world..but this is still a great visit. There are some good fresco remnants to be seen and of course in usual Lucca style there are concerts in the evenings. For 9 euros you can come here; climb the tower; go to San Martino: climb THAT tower; and go to the San Martino museum too. I love this church and think it is well worth a visit.
