The province of Lucca extends north to Garfagnana, east along the Versilia coast and west to the province of Pistoia. Lucca dresses the strictest Romanesque and most magnificent Renaissance with sheer impartiality.
Walk on imposing city walls ... Lucca is a unique, fascinating city. Since the Roman period, every era has intervened architecturally by re -inventing, modifying and reviving the past. So today we can observe a large number of opposing architectural styles, which are possible to merge into a great unity of the overall picture. In the Middle Ages, Lucca was one of the most influential cities in Europe. Large places, Romanesque churches and medieval towers still testify to this. The imposing and very well -preserved fortifications are among the most remarkable in Italy. The Sadtmauer span the medieval city center over a length of 4 kilometers. On the green wall you can walk wonderfully and enjoy the view of the city and the surrounding LANschafts. The beautiful churches of San Michele and San Martino are harmoniously surrounded by stately palaces that were created four or five centuries later. The Roman amphitheater on which the old marketplace was created merges with the rest of the city as if an architect, which is styled and styled, delivered the design to the city. But the delights that Lucca granted us are not just a kingdom. The old grocery stores and pastry shops, which look invitingly at Via Fillungo, offer the most exquisite specialties. And the vineyards, the characteristic trattories and restaurants testify to the good tradition of table joy in Lucchesian. This is also part of a culture that is reproduced for centuries and hopefully preserved, as well as the art treasures that Lucca experiences us every day.
The villas and the Garfagnana ... On the hills around the city you can visit beautiful old villas, on the part of the 17th century, which were built by rich Lucchesian families. Many of these villas, such as the royal villa of Marlia, Villa Mansi at Segromigno or the Villa Torrigiani near Camigliano, are of particular artistic interest. Well -preserved, magnificent rooms and interior facilities can be viewed at some. Others are made available for gala events, festivals and congresses. The Lucchesian villas are an interesting goal for art lovers and for anyone who wants to put themselves in the magical atmosphere of the past. If you follow the Serchio River in the mountains, you come to the wonderful mountain landscape of the Garfagnana. Hikers find optimal conditions in an attractive nature. In Borgo a Mozzano you should definitely pay a visit to the Ponte Della Maddalena bridge, or Teufelsbrücke, from the 12th century.
