Lucca is one of the most loved cities in Tuscany. In Lucca you will experience beauty, history, fabulous food, and all that Italy has to offer…without traffic, overpriced accommodations, or an overabundance of tourists. Lucca is the birthplace of Puccini, who is still considered one of the most influential composers of opera. In Lucca, you can experience a breathtaking concert of opera music every night of the year, which always includes the beautiful compositions of Puccini, in a small church in the center of town. Lucca is surrounded by beautiful, tree lined ancient city walls, and they are enjoyed every day by tourists and residents. The area around the walls is well taken care of, and have in essence become a park that surrounds the city and blocks out more modern life. On the perimeter of the walls, you can enjoy a bike ride, a stroll, or just enjoy a rest on one of the many shaded benches along the main walkway. In Lucca, you can easily explore the city center by foot or bike. And if you have the desire to travel to other cities, you can rely on public transportation, which means there is no need for a car. Lucca is very close to both both Pisa and Florence. Pisa and the Pisa airport are only about a 30-minute train ride from Lucca. And Florence (Firenze) can be reached by bus or train in less than 90 minutes. Cinque Terre is also a quick train ride away (less than 2 hours), close enough for a day visit.
