What is the thing you love the most in Lucca?

A few days ago we posted on Around Tuscany Facebook page a photo of Lucca by Henrik Lundholm Andersen taken from the top of the Torre Guinigi, one of the symbols of the city (trees on the roof tells you something?). We asked you to tell us what is the thing you love most in Lucca and you answered! Here are all your comments collected. Thank you for taking part in this research!
