The city for the newbies

The ideal tour for the first time travelers to Lucca. An easy and light itinerary to give you the chance to make acquaintance with the city, its art, tradition and history. Churches, monuments and squares will speak to you and tell you their past and present times.

Do not forget that if you really would like to feel a proper lucchese, the tour can be done by bike!
