Full description
Join this guided walking tour of the pretty town of Lucca. You'll walk along its intact Renaissance city walls, while listening to an introduction covering the city's history, past and present economy.

Walk through San Paolino Street and see the birthplace of the famous composer Puccini (exterior only), the dazzling Church of San Michele with its wedding cake facade, the imposing Piazza Napoleone and nearby Piazza del Giglio and the Romanesque cathedral housing the famous Volto Santo, a wooden crucifix supposedly made on the night when Jesus died.

Walking along the busy Via Fillungo, you'll see the most posh shopping street in town flanked by stunning medieval buildings and towers, including Torre Guinigi with trees on top. The tour will end at Piazza Anfiteatro, with its miniature coliseum converted centuries ago into a condominium, nowadays one the most picturesque squares in Tuscany. Oh, and don't forget to bring your camera along.
