the city and the house of Giacomo Puccini


Closed inside the high walls of her fortress, a beautiful Princess is sleeping. . .
The Princess is the city of Lucca, surrounded by walls and we will discover many treasures walking in the city: the city walls, the main Churches dedicated to San Frediano, San Michele and San Martino, Piazza Anfiteatro, Via Fillungo, the Guinigi's tower (with some trees on the top!) and Giacomo Puccini's place of birth.
This tour is mostly dedicated to the 'Maestro' so we will focus on the places where he lived and worked and we will spend around 30 minutes visiting the house where Giacomo Puccini was born and where a lot of memories are kept.
You can also buy tickets to the daily concert called "Puccini e la sua Lucca", performed at 7pm (duration: 1 hour).
