A tour to discover the secrets and marvels of Lucca’s defensive bastion

Montecarlo, a stunning town a few kilometres from Lucca, had been used in the past as a defensive bastion to protect the city-state and the surrounding valley from the attacks of the Republics of Florence and Pisa. Montecarlo was known for its former military uses and historical and artistic beauties, as well as the land of the finest D.O.C. red wines – a designation obtained in 1969 – and the prestigious D.O.P. extra virgin olive oil. It is located on the famous Wine and Oil Road of Lucca, on the remains of the ancient Vivinaia.
