Lucca

Lucca: the fist thing that you will probably note getting to Lucca are the ancient massively thick 16th-century city walls that surround it entirely, now converted into a 4 km promenade. Lucca is rich in art treasures from as far back as the Etruscans; cathedrals, sculpture, paintings and a National Museum. The city centre boasts 100 churches: start your tour from the Dome, located in Piazza San Martino, one of the most beautiful religious buildings of the area. The outside of the duomo is characterised by green and white stripes, loggias, carvings and columns in romanico-pisano style. Inside you'll find the Jacopo Della Quercia's marble sculpture of Ilaria Del Carretto, symbol of the town. After this sightseeing you might be tired: we hardly suggest a coffee break in one of the nice bars set in the perfectly oval shaped Piazza Anfiteatro, formed by houses built on the foundations of the Roman amphitheatre of the 2nd Century soon after the barbarian invasions. The villas and farmhouses within 15 kilometres of the city, in the provinces of Lucca and neighbouring Capannori, are already sought after as summer rentals by European visitors, and now the area is becoming an alternative to some of the more elite summer destinations in the United States.
