The tour...

  • We don’t always expect the charm of “minor” cities such as Lucca. Lots of serious publications as the New York Times recommend Lucca more than Florence to be immersed in an authentic feeling, difficult to find in such crowded places as Florence or Pisa, for example. Its medieval and baroque architecture, like its atmosphere, is 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 biking on the shady walls which is such a great experience with the numerous panoramic views, and in the town itself: the roman amphiteather, Guinigi tower, piazza San Michele, the San Frediano basilica, the cathedral, the Pfanner garden.

Ideas...

We can live another foody experience by tasting the local specialities of Lucca in a wine cellar: excellent extra-virgin olive oil, wine, truffle, cold cuts…
