The City of Lucca

Lucca is one of the most loved cities of all Tuscany, fully representing the soul of the Region itself. It is located on a plain at the foot of the Apuan Alps and less than half an hour from the coast of Versilia. Lucca is very easy to reach (both by car and train) and by flight, being half an hour far from the International Airport of Pisa and less than an hour from the International Airport of Florence.

The historical centre preserves the Roman street plan made of a rectangular grid, and the Piazza San Michele (one of the main squares) occupied the site of the ancient forum. 


 


Most of the attractions are related to its ancient history: traces of the Roman amphitheatre, archeological remains under the 12th century church of Saints Giovanni and Reparata, extremely charming villas and towers dating back to 12-16th century and many more.




As the city grew and modernised, the walls that surrounded the old town were maintained (on the contrary, they were lost in all other Tuscan cities, including Florence) and they are nowadays a fascinating pedestrian promenade that can be walked all around the city. Climate is normally very pleasant, particularly during Spring and Summer season.
