Day trip to Lucca. Jan 26, 2017
Lucca is a beautiful town located 85 km. west of Florence. It was the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini; the famous music composer. His house is open to visitors.

This town is surrounded by defence walls; 12 meters tall. The current walls were built between 1544 and 1650. These can be walked or cycled. The path there is paved.

The main square of Lucca is piazza Anfiteatro. It can' t really be defined a square, because it is elliptical. In fact it was built on the foundations of a Roman amphitheater. In this square there are various shops, some restaurants and cafes.

Lucca has lots of churches and a couple of palaces to visit. Palazzo Pfanner and Palazzo Mansi.
