one of the cities most loved all of Tuscany,
Lucca is renown for its ancient history.
The Roman amphiteater that can be seen in the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro
The archeological remains under the 12th century church of Saints Giovanni and Reparata (the first city cathedral, located just around the corner from the present-day cathedral of San Martino),
The various towers and villas from the 12th to 16th centuries.
The walls that surround the old town became a pedestrian promenade, today one of Lucca's main attractions.
The area around the walls is well maintained with grass and trees everywhere along the walls. It has become a park that surrounds the city. Here you can enjoy a bike ride around the entire perimeter, a stroll as you enjoy a gelato or simply a period of rest from sightseeing on one of the many shaded benches that line the main walkway.
