Immerse yourself in the vibrant and varied history of Italy's most musical city on this walking tour. Meet your guide at the entrance to the historical Teatro del Giglio and enjoy a guided tour of the interior of the theater, interspersed with musical performances throughout your tour.

Outside the theater, stroll in the footsteps of David Bowie, Elton John and the Rolling Stones in Piazza Napoleone, all of whom have performed concerts here. Admire the facade of San Martino Cathedral, where musicians of great quality have been produced throughout the centuries. Wander along Lucca’s narrow medieval streets to reach the Luigi Boccherini Conservatory, named after the illustrious cellist and composer born in the city.

Later, discover the characteristic oval-shaped Piazza dell’Anfiteatro where gladiators battled in Roman times and where artists such as Joe Cocker and Ray Charles have performed in more recent years. Reach the residence where Niccolò Paganini, the famous violinist, lived while in town and listen to the languid notes of one of his famous guitar and violin serenades which was composed in Lucca. Finish your tour at the birthplace of the most famous composer and celebrity in Lucca's history: Giacomo Puccini.
