The tour...

  • We don’t always expect a lesser-known city such as Lucca to be so charming. An authoritative newspaper such as the New York Times recommends Lucca over crowded cities such as Florence or Pisa to fully-experience the local lifestyle and ancient atmospheres. Its medieval and baroque architecture has been perfectly preserved, enclosed within the massive walls that the people of Lucca are so proud of. We will visit together the native town of Giacomo Puccini by cycling atop the shady walls, which is such a great experience, while enjoying many panoramic views, and through the town itself: the Roman amphiteather, the Guinigi tower, piazza San Michele, the Basilica of San Frediano, the cathedral and the gardens of Palazzo Pfanner.

Ideas...

We can delight in another foody experience by tasting the local specialities of Lucca in a wine cellar: excellent extra-virgin olive oil, wine, truffles, cold cuts and more.
