Tourist information

Lucca is among those Tuscan cities you need to explore on your holiday in Italy. You may decide to stay there or close by to use it as a starting point for discovering the area however, even though you don't, you can even explore it on a one-day tour. Lucca is well-known for its medieval town wall structures that have stayed undamaged even though a lot of other Tuscan cities saw their walls ruined in previous centuries. Stashed behind enforcing walls, its narrow roads, attractive squares and lovely promenades turn it into a fantastic spot to experience by walking - or as a one-day excursion from Florence.
Lucca was established by the Etruscans (there are indications of a pre-existing Ligurian village) and turned into a Roman territory in 2th century BC. The rectangle-shaped network of its historic town heart maintains the Roman road map, and the Square of San Michele fills the place of the historic forum. Tracks of the arena can still be viewed in the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro.

The province of Lucca provides the chance to explore spectacular villas, constructed between the 16th and mid-19th centuries to serve as the country houses and summer houses for the high society, all built within beautiful parks. Among them two attract attention the most: Villa Mansi, a remarkable 16th-Century building with frescoed areas and a huge garden created by architect Filippo Juvarra and Villa Torrigiani with its unique gardens.

What to See

The majority of the tourist attractions in Lucca these days reveal its archaic past record: from the ruins of the Roman amphiteater that could be viewed in the shape of the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro to the ancient ruins below the 12th century church of Saints Giovanni and Reparata, to the different towers and luxury summer houses from the 12th to 16th centuries. One more must-see sights for guests of Luca is the Cathedral of St. Martin with its valuable artifact of the Volto Santo di Lucca. Legend says the wood crucifix with the image of Christ was sculpted by Nicodemus, a devotee of Christ, and the sacred cross was astonishingly carried to Lucca in the 8th century. Additional major points of interest are the Piazza of San Michele with its wonderful Church of San Michele in Foro, the Basilica of San Frediano along with the Clock Guinigi Tower, to mention only a couple of them.

Most of the families preparing for holidays in Lucca prefer staying in private apartments. In such cases, the families prefer sleeping rooms having two or three rooms.
