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!).



Meeting with the guide in Piazza S. Maria in front of the Bike Shop (bike rental not included in tour price)
-leisurely ride on the city walls and historical introduction of the city
-visit the courtyard of Palazzo Pubblico and Piazza Napoleone
-ride on to Piazza S. Michele
-Giacomo Puccini's Birthplace (outside)
-ride through some suggestive streets and reach the Cathedral
- Piazza Anfiteatro, former "Coliseum" of Lucca
-return to Piazza S. Maria

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Being Piazza Santa Maria in the old centre of Lucca, it is so easy to find some good cafès or a restaurant to relax after the tour. The main shopping street Via Fillungo is just around the corner.

In case of bad weather we can arrange a 2 hours walking tour of the city (same price).

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
