What you can expect

We’ll start our Lucca tour at the very spot that welcomes most visitors to the city: the Lucca train station. From there, we’ll head through the majestic city walls and reach the beautiful Cathedral Square, giving you your first taste of life in Lucca.

But wait! To truly “taste” the city, you need to do just that and put your taste buds to work. Italians never start the day without their espresso fix, so we’ll do as the locals do and savour a cup of coffee. And because a good espresso goes best with a delicious treat, we’ll taste a traditional delicacy: buccellato cake. We’ll take you to an original vintage place and enter the magical world of chocolate too! Merchants and nobles were Lucca’s first lovers of chocolate and the tradition of chocolate-making has lasted for five centuries. We’ll taste the best selection in one of the most beautiful chocolate shops in town.

Don’t worry, although, we’ll keep moving so you can walk off the calorific chocolate! With the caffeine and sugar fuelling us we will head towards the main shopping street of Lucca, admiring the mediaeval and Renaissance architecture and the signs of the old shops that testify to the city’s ancient artisan traditions: shoemakers, knife grinders, and silk merchants.

We’ll get to take in wonderful views from the top of the city as we wander along a part of the Renaissance walls. This pedestrian way is where locals regularly run, walk, and relax.

This last stop on our Lucca tour will bring us to Roman times in the Piazza della Anfiteatro, or Amphitheatre Square, which is full of typical shops – and lunch! We’ll introduce you to some authentic food and wine, like maybe some Bazzone cured ham, Colonnata lardo, finocchiona salami, or Pecorino cheese produced in the Garfagnana mountains. To wash it all down, we’ll cheers with a glass of good local wine or artisan beer. Salute!
