Lucca • Half Day Walking Tours

Half day tour and that includes an introduction covering the city’s history, past and present economy plus a visit to the city wall (pictured above), San Paolino Street, Puccini’s birthplace (exterior only), the dazzling church of San Michele with its wedding-cake façade, the imposing Piazza Napoleone and nearby Piazza del Giglio, the Romanesque cathedral housing the famous Volto Santo, a wooden crucifix supposedly made on the very night in which Jesus died.
We walk along the busy Via Fillungo, the poshest shopping Street in town, flanked by stunning medieval buildings and towers, including the tree-topped Torre Guinigi. The tour ends at Piazza Anfiteatro, the miniature Coliseum converted centuries ago into a condominium, nowadays one the most picturesque squares in Tuscany.
