  • The outward appearance of San Giovanni not glimpsed the interesting thing about its interior, which you can listen daily concerts, and see the remains of the early Christian Church and its baptistery under the impressive dome covering it in the Renaissance. Don't miss the possibility to climb the Bell Tower, with stunning views over Lucca.

  • We visited the old church thanks to the combined ticket and although inside was a manifestation of art we managed to grasp the details of its former beauty. The three naves supported by columns in capitals are decorated with frescoes pale but the chapel of Sant ignazio is the most original and spectacular. After the strenuous climb the Bell Tower we stood on the site of archaeological excavations that collects old remnants of five epochs and underlying the dodicesmo century under the present three churches. IT even goes so far to the remains of the first century Roman baths with a fragment of paving in opus signinum in earthenware of a Roman domus of the 1st century BC. and the hanging bridges allow you to visit the space and see the remains of the ancient Church Lombard Church of the 8th century. Beautiful everything as seen in the attached photos

  • Was formerly the Cathedral of Lucca. This is Baroque/Romanesque style in its absolute spectacular. Most intriguing is the baptistery of Giovanni in a stunning Gothic hall. Now a museum, must also visit the extensive archeological discovery underground with remnants of Episcopalis Basilica with early Roman and Christian remnants.
  • Nice church but the Puccini performance should really have more of his Greatest Hits.
