What people are saying about Province of Lucca

The tour was a real discovery: being from the area we have always experienced the Lucca of shopping in Finlungo, aperitifs on the walls and fairs ... instead it was a discovery from a cultural and musical point of view! Thanks to Gabriele, our guide who in a nice and professional way at the same time told us the history of Lucca, curious anecdotes, made us listen to music ... and certainly did not spare his time with us, even giving us some more! Highly recommended! Thanks Vanessa, Alice, Martina!

I was the only tourist on the tour. Despite this, the activity took place anyway and the guide Paola did not spare herself. First of all, a nice tour of the city accompanied by historical information and on the cultural life of Lucca (absolutely necessary for those who, like me, set foot there for the first time). Then the musical cut was perfect, really nice, you listen (from the phone) super, very suggestive. Very kind and helpful guide, very engaging. A really good experience.

This tour was one of the best events we experienced in 2020 properly. We been in Lucca in October and browsed through the options of guided tours. Instead of a usual walking tour, we decided to go with this special version as we are both music fans. It was a perfect mix of classical & modern musical explanations combined with a lot of insights into the city and its history. We will come again the next time we are around.

Fabulous and very professional one hour show. Great selection that differs every evening. Well worth going and hearing the amazing singers also with a fabulous acoustic

Great event!! Just enough to give us an idea of Puccini’s work. Nice way to spend and evening.
