  • Biking around the top of a wall that was built centuries ago, and took a century to build? Yes, please! Read up on Lucca, then visit. We found old cannonballs laying in the dirt. That's cool. The bike ride around took us 20 minutes. We also walked a bunch of it. Do both. It's a beautiful place.
  • Fantastic place, over 4 km of recreational area and asphalt track around old town of Lucca. Great for riding a bike or walking. Very good for navigating around town, easy access into town every few hundred meters. A lot of places in bastions to play with kids or just sit reading a book. Plenty of trees all along so you can always hide from the sun. One thing - there is no gastronomy there, no cafes or other places to have a drink or ice-cream.
