For me Lucca is one of the most wonderful towns in Italy. A mediaeval town with easy access from Pisa or Florence.
The historical centre of Lucca lies within a unique wall system. These walls, built of small red bricks specifically created for their construction, were many years in the making (16th to 17th century). They were built as a defence against the 'old enemy', Florence
La Piazza dell'Anfiteatro one of our favorite spots within the walled town.
