Point of interest

THE WALLS
The symbol of Lucca thanks to their beauty. Ideal for taking a stroll, run or bicycle ride in the shade of the trees which line the entire circular route. During the past centuries, as the city grew, 3 sets of city walls were built: the Roman walls (built in the 2nd century b.C.), the Medieval walls (12th –13th centuries) and the Renaissance walls (16th – 17th centuries). The Renaissance walls are those we see today. The Walls are 12 m high, their circumference is about Km 4 and they include 11 curtained walls and 10 bastions. Some of the main city doors are Porta San Pietro, Porta Elisa and Porta Santa Maria. In Via dei Fossi (Dei Fossi Street) there is Porta San Gervasio and Protasio which is the remains of the Medieval walls which no longer exist.
SAN MARTINO CATHEDRAL
Built in the 6th century it become a Cathedral in the 8th century. It was rebuilt in the 12th century and the facade was reconstructed in multi-coloured marble. In its interior there is the Sarcophagus of Ilaria del Carretto, who was Paolo Guinigi’s wife, the ruler of Lucca. This sarcophagus was built in 1407 by Jacopo Della Quercia. Inside the Cathedral there is also the Tempietto: a small temple built in 1482 by Civitali which contains the Volto Santo (Holy Countenance) that is a venerated crucifix in Lucca.
SAN MICHELE CHURCH
Situated in Piazza San Michele (San Michele Square). It was built between the 11th – 14th century. Its style is Romanesque and on top of the facade there is the Archangel Michael statue.
GUINIGI TOWER (1390)
This tower once belonged to the Guinigi family. Its entrance is in Via delle Chiavi d’Oro (Delle Chiavi d’Oro Street). It is 41 m high and features oak trees on the top from which you can admire the stunning landscape of Lucca.
ANFITEATRO SQUARE
In the past this square was a Roman amphitheatre built in the 2nd century AD. Today it is an enchanting and fascinating place because of its elliptical shape, the houses along the square and cafés with outdoors tables in summer.
VERSILIA
A coastal area which spreads from Viareggio to Forte dei Marmi. Versilia is renowned in winter for the Carnival and in summer for its seaside resorts, glorious sea, long sandy beaches and bathing establishments. It features a lively nightlife with its venues and discos. It is also worth visiting inland villages such as Camaiore and Pietrasanta.
GARFAGNANA
This region lies between the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan – Emilian Appennine where the Serchio river runs through. A real paradise for nature lovers with woods, lakes and small villages. Typical products: spelt and chestnuts.
