Italian charm in captivating Lucca

The riverfront city of Lucca draws travelers with its Italian charm, with historic churches, captivating museums and restaurants galore to explore. Days here are spent walking and cycling along well-preserved city walls that date back to Renaissance times, while excursions take visitors to popular nearby sites, like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or off into the Tuscan countryside in search of vineyards and wineries.

Things to do

Step back in time in fascinating Lucca

Lucca is packed with historic and cultural sites that you'll want to make time for, from old churches dating back 100s of years to museums and fortified towers. Take a tour of historic religious sites to admire the city's old architecture. The Church of San Michele in Foro is a popular attraction, with a public square, while the Cathedral of St. Martin shows off picturesque Gothic and Romanesque styles. Music lovers will enjoy a tour of the Puccini Museum, where you can explore the birthplace of the great composer and see artifacts and instruments from his early days.

Activities

Exploring Lucca's historic city walls

Taking a walk or bike ride in this old Tuscan city is one of the best ways to sightsee, and Lucca's historic city walls are an ideal place to start. The well-preserved fortifications from the Renaissance era once served to protect the city, but unlike many other towns in the region, they remain intact and now serve as a promenade, welcoming locals and visitors alike for long walks beneath the shady trees that line paved pathways. Stop at the market for picnic supplies before heading up here and enjoy an al fresco lunch on the quiet benches.

Weather

Spring and fall in lovely Lucca

There's no better feeling than the crisp fresh air of spring and fall in Lucca, with average daytime temperatures in the 60s and 70s and conditions perfect for exploring outdoors, meandering between historic sites and checking out local parks and pathways. If you visit during this time, look for a Lucca vacation rental with a fireplace and kitchen, perfect for spending evenings indoors cooking up an Italian feast and sampling the Tuscan wines the region is famous for. July and August can be hot, so be sure to secure a rental with air conditioning for summer vacations.
