WALK ON THE WALLS OF LUCCA
VISIT THE WALLS
The urban walls of Lucca with 96 hectares of greenery totally pedestrianized, represent a unique reality in the panorama of European architecture and urban planning. Built between 1513 and 1650, they are one of the greatest examples of Italian Renaissance fortification. Having lost their military function, they are now a large public park loved by citizens and travelers which surrounds and delimits the historic center with a 4.2 km elevated and tree-lined promenade to be covered on foot, by run or by bike.
