Lucca Area holidays

Dating all the way back to the Renaissance, the grand city walls that surround Lucca are pretty impressive. They’re great for walking around, and serve as a sightseeing platform, too. This compact city has all the trappings of a classic Italian retreat, so get to know every inch of it.

History, all wrapped up

Lucca’s iconic landmark is its city walls. The architecture spans all the way back to the 16th century, so it’s ideal for budding historians of all ages. They’re surrounded by rich green spaces, which are perfect for mid-morning or afternoon strolls, and make super backdrops for holiday snaps.

The inner circle

Inside the walls, there are plenty of intricate buildings housing shops and eateries. Explore by foot or hire a bike – just go at your own pace. There’s the splendid Gothic cathedral to discover, and the Piazza Napoleone is the meeting point of choice for locals looking for extra atmosphere.

Foodie faves

Stop by a café for a Lucchesi lunch and you won’t regret it. Order warm focaccia and farro soup, and you’ll be on culinary cloud nine. It’s simple, wholesome food at its finest. When it comes to drinks, China Massagli is the local tipple, while nearby vineyards burst into life with full-bodied wines.
