What people are saying about Province of Lucca

Our e-bike tour was very nice. Lucca our guide was the perfect guide!! Very professional, knowledgeable and always had our comfort and security in mind. The bike tour was fun and not too challenging. The winery is a very small family business that has been there many years. Quite interesting. Truly enjoyed!! Lucca is bery beautiful and all its surroundings.

This may have been my favorite thing to do in Italy! The path was clear (make sure you have enough power for your phone) and it ran along the river and through 2 small towns before getting to Pisa. Make sure everything on your bike is working before you get too far from the shop.

Bike was easy to use and the electric assist was great. The route is more complicated than I expected, but the app they provide and a good attitude will get you there. Overall, nice way to see good views and enjoy a change of pace activity.

Biking around the beautiful city of Lucca was a highlight of our trip to Italy! The city was beautiful with lots of restaurants and shopping.

Marta was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide! Bikes are a wonderful way to see the countryside one of the highlights of our trip so far!
