Lucca was formerly an Etruscan Settlement dating back to 180BC, and boasts a long and eventful history.
Lucca combines historical monuments, stunning architecture and excellent local cuisine to attract visitors from all over Europe and beyond.
Situated on the Serchio River in the Tuscany region, Lucca is also renowned for the well-preserved Renaissance walls encircling its historic city centre and its cobblestone streets. Broad, tree-lined pathways along the tops of these massive 16th and 17th century ramparts are popular for strolling and cycling.
Lucca is also known for its olio d’oliva lucchese, high-quality olive oil produced in the region.
Lucca´s Fullingo Street offers a wide choice of designer shopping outlets, bars and cafés. If you want to relax after a hard day´s shopping, visit the Bagna di Lucca spa.
The nearby city of Pisa is well worth a visit and offers much more than its famous leaning tower. Explore the back streets and visit the quirky shops and pavement cafés.
