We enjoyed the e-bike tour through Lucca. First we drove all the way around the city on the city wall and were able to see where we wanted to go afterwards. And then we drove back and forth through the old town and “grazed” the sights. The bikes were super good, brand new and a small city map was also included. It was a nice experience with fantastic weather. Highly Recommended!

We had a great tour with Marta who was so kind, friendly and interesting. We really enjoyed learning about Lucca and its culture. The cycle of the walls was great as was the visit to the vineyard with excellent lunch and tasting of wines. A wonderful tour.
