Music and Giacomo Puccini are two milestones tied to both history and harmony. If you wish to really understand Lucca, you should know that they can also be perceived as two of the fundamental elements generated by a territory rich in history, culture, and tradition.
An attentive and inquisitive visitor should not be surprised to discover how many other great artists have left mementos of their passage through Lucca and how many major events have been held, in the area, up to present day.
Past musicians like Geminiani, Boccherini, Paganini, Catalani and contemporary ones like Chet Baker and The Rolling Stones, to name a few, have all been protagonists in Lucca’s still vibrant musical journey.
Our guided tour consists of a pleasant stroll “andante…. ma con brio”, accompanied by excerpts of the artists’ most significant and famous compositions.
