Le mura di Lucca reviews
Well worth walking the walls while in Lucca. It is easy to pop down into the city for breaks and coffee etc. You really get a sense of the town and it is not too busy for peace and quiet. more »
A nice way to get your bearings for the city. Some hotels lend out bikes for free to their customers or you can hire bikes from 4 Euro an hour. It only took us 40 minutes to cycle all the way around..... 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.
