Lucca is a gem – compact, flat, lively – an ideal destination for groups of all description. The still-standing enclosing wall, itself a rarity in Tuscany, has been thoughtfully transformed into a circular park of some 4 kms in length. Run it, bike it, stroll it as you like, taking in unusual views through upper church windows and into the gardens of the Palazzo Pfanner. Can you I Spy a tree growing off the ground? Lunch at Buca di Sant’Antonio– not just for the food but for the view of hundreds of copper pots hanging from the rafters. For a unique, insiders perspective, take a walk with charming Federico through the centro storico, home-town to his family through generations. Ask us how.
