WALK Lucca Private Tour
¡AHORA TAMBIÉN EN ESPAÑOL (Descripción más adelante)!
As we entered the high walls, astonishment had already hit us... the antique roman city of Lucca! We didn't count the churches, but people say to be likely more than 100. On bright days, you could see the Apuan Alps from the top of the Guinigi Tower. Noble families measured their power through hight: who had the highest tower was likely to be the most powerful man in town. We strolled from piazza to piazza and absorb the city’s history through its shapes.
We did some shopping in the small shops on our way to the walls, completely walkable. They have in essence become a park that surrounds the city and blocks out more modern life.
