There are heaps of bike rental shops in the walls and it's worth every penny to grab a bike and even just use it to ride around the wall. It's 4km (2.5mi), perfectly flat and really wide so even nervous/novice cyclists will enjoy it. The rental places will ask for your license or some form of ID and then give it back when you return the bike/s. Trees line the path and it's just beautiful regardless of whether you bike or walk...a must do if you're going to Lucca!

We took the opportunity to have a nice stroll along the top of the wall around the old city. The path is very wide and traveled by cyclists, jiggers, walkers, and the occasional bike/trolley. The path is a our 4km in diameter.

This is one of the best ways to see Lucca at any time of the year. Walking or cycling, you get a panoramic view of the city, and because you are high up the air feels clean. You can also see how this gem of a city has developed.

Lucca is such a special place. It's far quieter than the heart of Tuscany, and the Mura is very special. From sun up to sun down, it's always the perfect time to walk or cycle the wide expanses and enjoy the different views as you do a lap on the outside of the old town. It's so interesting with the old towers and also the hillside views looking away from town. As you stroll, you might come across a street market below and you simply exit the next ramp have a look and then stroll back up again. Perfect for a romantic walk.

All the Luccese love to walk, jog and ride the walls and all the tourists too. Choose lunchtime when they are all enjoying gourmet delights for a less crowded circuit! And when riding watch out for children and dogs!!
