The wall was built in the past to protect the city. It is now used for walking and cycling, with beautiful views of the old town. more »
We walk around the walls several times during the week we stay in Lucca every September. A great opportunity for exercise and a great opportunity to take photographs of this beautiful and ever changing walled city. Depending on where the sun is it can look very different from the last time you walked the walls Watch out for runners and tourists on bicycles!
We spent a morning walking around the walls. The walk is superb with plenty of room on the walls which are paved all the way round. Getting on and off is accessible for everyone with good ramps and steps at may points all the way round. The trees provide plenty of shade and there are lots of benches all the way round to rest.
