Lucca sits in Tuscany in the heart of central Italy. It has long been famous for its intact Renaissance-era city walls which draw tourists and history lovers alike.
This historical city maintains the traditional Roman era rectangular layout. You’ll find a lot of beautiful spots to soak in the thousands of years of history. The Piazza San Michele occupies the site of the ancient forum. If you know where to look traces of the amphitheatre still may be seen in the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro.
Despite the expansion of the city the walls encircling the old town remain intact. The city was one of the most important fortresses for the defence of Italy of the years.
Take your time to wonder the streets and relax in one of the many city squares, Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, is one of the most historic; but if you have time Piazzale Verdi; Piazza Napoleone; and Piazza San Michele are exceptionally beautiful. Take your time as you’ll never know what you’ll find around each corner.
The cobble stoned streets and the smell of fresh coffee will make you fall in love with Tuscany like so many before you.
See Lucca’s fortress arise in all it’s glory! Let me guide you through one of the best preserved tactical cities of the Florentine empire.

About your guide, Pepe:
Hi, My name is Pepe. Born and raised in Amsterdam, I started my college years in Perugia, Umbria. Obviously I fell in love with Italy’s famous views, kitchen, people and culture straight away. And soon I was spending all my Holidays in some other part of this historic ground. Being fed up with having to travel back and forth, I decided a few years ago to stop dreaming of a life and start living this dream. And I have been living happily ever since in the Tuscan hills, exploring all there is to see, taste and experience in this rich country.
