easy, pleasant and funny way to visit Lucca
Throughout Italy, Lucca is becoming more and more known by the nickname: "The City of Bicycles".
So take an easy paced, laid back bike ride around Lucca as most of the "local lucchesi" do every day.
Thanks to its ring of tree-lined Renaissance city walls and to its historical centre now being a pedestrian precinct, Lucca is the only city in Tuscany which offers visitors the unique opportunity of seeing its splendour on a bike, completely hassle-free.
Easy, pleasant and fun, suitable for all ages (it is only required to be able to ride a bike!).

Estimated Local Cash Needed
50 euros - cash (per person)- carry some local cash is always a good idea because some shops and cafes don't accept credit card.
I do not have a commercial driver's license. I can arrange for a professional driver (car or van).

AMAZING. We have been to Rome, Naples, Florence, Cinque Terre, and Venice on this trip and the bike tour with Carlo is at the very top of our list! The town of Lucca is so charming, and seeing it through Carlo's eyes and through his stories truly could not have been better. I was almost in tears(of joy-and I am NOT a crier!) at one point during the tour as he told us about the history of Lucca comparing the scene to the Lord of Rings movies as we made a stop during our bike ride on the walls of Lucca.
