Welcome to Lucca, an Etruscan and Roman city famous for its monumental sixteenth-century walls that surround it just like a precious casket. Lucca is the city where 'one takes grace', as one of the most illustrious citizens of the Tuscan capital used to say, that Giacomo Puccini who would have brought the name of Lucca and Torre del Lago all over the world. From Lucca myTour has prepared for you a series of tours to discover the Tuscan territory.
The historic center of Lucca is a small, well-preserved pearl. From the walls you move along small streets, to reach large squares and exceptional historical monuments. In Lucca there is tranquility and slowness: it is a city that can be visited well on foot, but if you want to optimize time any type of alternative mobility works here, from bikes to rickshaws. The atmosphere is that of other times, including cafes, ice cream parlors, boutiques, artisan shops, bakeries and restaurants where you can get in touch with the taste of local tradition. Buccellato, sweet bread, cinchona, digestive amaro, tordelli and garmugia.
Lucca is surrounded by rolling hills where excellent wines are produced. Lucca is also the gateway to Garfagnana, a region of rivers, lakes, valleys and high mountains where nature still reigns almost untouched. From Lucca myTour has prepared some itineraries for you to discover Tuscany and Liguria. You can take a private tour to discover the steep cliffs and crystal clear waters of the 5 Terre, or spend a whole day in the Tuscan countryside, visiting Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni, with lunch consisting of typical dishes included.
