This city's reduced scale and high quality of life are in perfect harmony with the importance of her urbanist and architectural monuments. You will be agreeably surprised by this small town that grew rich through silk production and trade and that to this day is able to fascinate her visitors.
We shall see the beautiful Cathedral of St. Martin, amble through the little streets of this old town, discover picturesque courtyards and shops with a long history and tradition, and also the square in the shape of the Roman amphitheatre, mediaeval tower houses, 17th-century palaces and other buildings, which are clearly influenced by the Napoleonic domination of Italy. Giacomo Puccini and Luigi Boccherini were born in Lucca. A stroll around the perimeter of the old city walls is a lovely experience that offers spectacular views into the city.
Near Lucca are two villas, Villa Torrigiani and Villa Mansi, considered to be among the most beautiful of this type of building in the area; they are richly furnished and surrounded by wonderful gardens.
The visit can be combined with a trip to Pisa.
