Lucca: the sleeping beauty


Closed inside the high walls of her fortress, a beautiful Princess is sleeping. . .

The Princess is the city of Lucca, surrounded by walls, but there is another Princess called Ilaria still sleeping in a church. . . we will meet her, if you like! :)
And we will also discover the most beautiful spots and monuments of Lucca: the city walls, the main Churches (San Frediano, San Michele and San Martino. . do you know that Lucca is said to have 100 churches?), Piazza Anfiteatro, Via Fillungo, the Guinigi's tower (with some trees on the top!), Giacomo Puccini's place of birth.

We will talk about the past and the present of this strange city and I will let you understand why Lucca is so different from the rest of Tuscany! :)

A Recent Review of this tour

Antonella has a friendly and welcoming personality and she has a great love for her city, Lucca. We really enjoyed her commentary as we weaved through the walled city. She really understood our interests and incorporated that into her presentation. I would use her services again!
