When you'll be tired of Firenze, Sienna, and San Giminiano in Tuscany, pay a visit to Lucca! Lucca is situated in the heart of Tuscany, between Pisa (20 Km) and Florence (72 Km), and very close to sea and to mountains.

When you’ll be tired of Firenze, Sienna, and San Giminiano in Tuscany, pay a visit to Lucca! Lucca is situated in the heart of Tuscany, between Pisa (20 Km) and Florence (72 Km), and very close to sea and to mountains.
This town is off the mainstream of tourism, quiet and charming. Cars are not allowed in the old center of the town. It’s a pleasure to visit it on foot, or better, to rent a bicycle. Many churches to visit, the most beautiful one is the San Michele in Foro, with its intricate Pisan facade, and it is huge statue of the Archangelo at its summit.

You’ll have to climb the 200 stairs of the Guinigi tower: on the tower’s top, under the 7 oaks that grows there, you benefit of the marvelous panorama on the whole city. Then, have a look at the Piazza Anfiteatro, the huge oval remnant of the antique Roman foundation of the amphitheater, on top of whose ruins houses and paved cafes have been built. After a cup of the divine Italian coffee, walk on the medieval walls of the city (4 kilometers) or better ride a bike or run.

  • How to Get There:
    BY CAR: Take the A 11 (FI-PI-LI) to Lucca.
    BT TRAIN: The train station is just outside the city walls in Piazza Ricasoli. Trains to and from Florence and Pisa are very frequent.
