“Marvellous monument”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

One of the most beautiful towns in Tuscany, surrounded by the mura, a wonderful monument that makes you travel to a very far away era, when Lucca was one of the richest towns for its commerce. The mura are very well kept and you can ride them on a bike and go all around the town. Very nice experience.

“Take a bike ride on the walls”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The walls are very nice for an afternoon bike ride. We took the funny four seaters for the family. There are plenty of places to stop and go see the walls from nearby.
You can rent bikes from different places by the walls. Prices depend on type of bike you rent.

“Get on your bikes and ride!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

The City Wall is a must do activity in Lucca, and unlike many places, there is no access charge. "Wall" might give you the wrong expectation - it is really more like an elevated park that encircles the city. However, the visit is much more fun if you ride a bike. Renting a bike is as easy as riding one in Lucca. There are rental stands everywhere. The going rate seemed to be 3 euros per hour for basic city bikes. Just turn up, no deposit required, just a driver's license or other picture ID (would not recommend leaving your passport).

It is a really easy, stress free ride as the wall is mostly very wide, with good surface quality. It was not crowded in late July.

If you have a car, park in the Cittadella parking lot. It was relatively quiet and cheap to park.

There are lots of shady places to stop on the wall, so go to a little sandwich shop or delicatessen and buy stuff for a picnic first, which you can then carry in the bike's basket.

A great activity for 2 hours respite from the bustle of the old town.

“Best nature around Lucca”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

The wall is just a geat experience of nature, culture and Lucca's history. We have walked around, but this is just a perfect running route of 4.2 km. Just take a few rounds, it never get boring.

If you are not able to walk or run, make sure to rent a bike a get around, it is a must-do.

“Great for leisurely stroll.”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We were able to park for free in a car park only a couple of minutes from the northern entrance to Lucca and took a very relaxing walk in an anti clockwise direction around the city walls. They must have been a formidable obstacle to any would be invaders back in the day,as well as a great relief for the locals sheltering behind them. It took us about an hour to circumnavigate the walls,and this gave us a good feel for the geography of the city,and set us up nicely for a snack and a cool drink.
