Lucca: Renaissance City Walls Walking Tour

1. Lucca: Renaissance City Walls Walking Tour

Built during the Renaissance, the Walls of Lucca are a leading example of Italian fortification. Explore this large public park that surrounds and delimits the historical center. Immerse in the elevated walkway, flanked by different varieties of trees. Also, take in the incredible experience of visiting their interior. Discover the galleries and the recently restored rooms. The restoration has given back one of the most treasured monuments to the inhabitants of Lucca and has made moving from the inside of the city to the outside, simple and very suggestive. Learn from your local guide all about the evolution of military engineering in Italy from the 13th to the 17th centuries. Visit the interior of the bastions that incidentally were never used for defensive purposes. Also, discover the immense brick vaults of the galleries, built for the purpose of hiding the heavy bronze cannons.
