ITINERARY

This Lucca tour is all about experiencing the city in an authentic way, by becoming a local for a day! Italy is famed for the importance it places on food and drink, so of course, we'll learn about (and taste!) lots of it as we go. And along the way, we'll uncover majestic city walls, narrow roads, tall towers, and arts and crafts shops. You'll also realise why Lucca is known as the city of 100 churches.

Your Lucca tour will start at the city's train station, and from there we'll walk past the majestic city walls and enjoy a view of Lucca before diving into local life. We'll head to the city centre, where the beautiful Romanesque marble Cathedral stands.

We'll then head to a favourite local spot: San Michele in Foro Square. This is where locals come to meet up with one another, typically for a friendly chat in a nice bar.

Our first food stop will be in a local bakery where we will try cecina, a traditional focaccia bread with unexpected ingredients, alongside a glass of Italian beer or wine.

Lucca's locals love going for aperitivo after work — meeting with friends and spending a few hours indulging in a glass of good wine and some savoury snacks. And because this tour is all about showing you local life, of course our next stop will be a Vineria, a small wine bar typical of the Tuscan tradition, where we'll order a glass of wine with a snack.

After a few minutes of walking through the attractive streets, we will reach Amphitheatre Square, the only oval square in Italy that takes the place of the typical Roman amphitheatre. We'll finally relax with a glass of wine or local beer — and, of course, you can't sample Italian wine or local beer without a side of cured meats and pecorino cheese.

Your tour ends here but feel free to hang around, order another drink and soak up the lively atmosphere of the square. Before you go, don't forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in lovely Lucca.

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
