Thanks to its unique, intact Renaissance walls, hundreds of churches, narrow streets and perfectly preserved Roman amphitheatre, Lucca has become one of the most popular destinations in Tuscany. But beyond these historic delights, what else is there to do in the area? Lots, believe it or not! For nature lovers and those looking to explore Lucca to the fullest, we’re suggesting two itineraries: the Olive Tree Route and Gardens and Parks in Lucca.
The province of Lucca stretches from the coastline in the Versilia to the mountains in the Garfagnana, offering not only a variety of landscapes and outdoor experiences, but also the chance to be part of this culture and its traditions and to taste a range of local products. These itineraries are aimed at letting you enjoy the variety available in the province, from the city to the sea to the mountains. This is a unique chance to explore some of the lesser-known areas, rich in history, culture and traditions.
