green spots in Lucca

Aside from the other wonders of the city, this is a walk around picturesque gardens, such as the Botanical Garden, the tree-topped Guinigi tower and the Italian garden of Palazzo Pfanner, all located inside the long and woody city walls.
Please be informed that this tour is available from April to October as Palazzo Pfanner and the Botanical Garden are closed in winter.
Torre Guinigi is open all year round.


This tour is focused on city gardens so we will see:
the city Walls: our wonderful public park
Palazzo Pfanner garden: visible from the top of the city Walls, you can decide if visiting it with me or go there and relax as long as you like after the tour. An entrance fee is required.
The Botanical Garden: born in 1820, it keeps an amazing variety of trees and plant including camellias. An entrance fee is required and I suggest to visit it with me as there are a lot of nice spots and stories.
The Guinigi Tower: actually. . it's not a garden but it's the only MiddleAge tower with trees on the top! An entrance fee is required.
Of course we will also see ancient churches, buildings and wonders in the city :)
