Full description
After meeting your guide at the Tourist Information Center in the city center of Lucca, discover the city and its main sights and monuments. With your professional licensed guide, explore the downtown area for 2 hours.   Among other sites, visit the Church of San Michele, an incredibly detailed Roman Catholic basilica that was built as early as 795. Admire its 4 meter-tall statue of the Archangel Michael, the church’s patron saint. Enter the church free of charge and view its simpler, but still imposing interior architecture. You’ll also take a stroll on the city’s 16th century walls, a lovely place to walk among the greenery of the edge of the old town.     The tour ends at Lucca Cathedral, a splendid Roman Catholic church with a beautiful façade. If you’d like to continue on the tour with your guide, simply pay the small entrance fee and your guide will show you the interior and continue to share their knowledge. If not, your tour is finished and you can relax in a café with a drink at your leisure or continue to explore the city.

Lucia was fabulous. Her presentation was very interesting: a mixture of art, history, architecture, engineering, language, music… her style was warm and humorous. Her pace was good, not too fast or too slow. She shared suggestions for things on our own and was great about answering folks questions. We highly recommend this tour and our guide, Lucia.

Well organized. Booked the day itself without any problems. Very nice cheerful and enthusiastic guide who told a lot of interesting information about the city. Nice way to see all the squares and sights. Goes at a leisurely pace and the walk is not a long distance, so I think it's also good for people who have less mobility. Optional entrance into the cathedral with an explanation of the most important works there (short but very interesting and just long enough). Afterwards, you can even cycle over the city walls of Lucca, which is also highly recommended!

I had the best experience for the lowest amount spent on my entire trip. It was educational, sportive and fun. The most amazing part was the excitement of our guide. She clearly enjoys what she is doing and loves her native town. She was proud about everything and I really enjoyed listening to brag about her town, her people and their history. Money well spent
