Around Lucca there are more than 300 historic Villas, country mansions that merchants from Lucca built between the 16th and 19th centuries, the result of their successful trading, all over Europe.

Every year since 1977 Capannori has held the Marcia delle Ville, one of the most popular non-competitive races nationwide with about 20,000 participants. The route takes place within the historic gardens of the Villas and is therefore a unique event because it combines sports, nature and culture. There are several routes to choose from, starting from 5 up to 26 km, as well as the opportunity to visit the Expo area inside the Marlia Market.
