If you are visiting Lucca for the first time, do not miss this guided tour in Lucca’s historic centre and discover all its wonders. Share the experience of a guided tour with others by joining a guided walk around the main tourist sights and monuments of the city! Lucca still retains the charm of a small and ancient Italian city-state. Thanks to its shrewd political policy throughout the years, Lucca has managed to hold on to its independence and freedom. Having miraculously escaped the devastation of war, today it boasts one of the most extraordinary Tuscan art heritages. The imposing tree-lined Renaissance Walls which totally enclose the city, the maze of medieval streets flanked by towers and elegant boutiques, the enchanting Romanesque churches and bright inviting squares captivate the visitor who remains awestruck by such unexpected beauty. The historical centre, now a pedestrian area, plunges the visitor back in time and provides the perfect setting to savour old world charm, where time and space take on a new dimension, no longer found in today’s modern cities.

The tour begins in the very central Piazza San Michele in Foro, characterized by the Romanesque church of the same name. You will head to Piazza Napoleone, or as the people of Lucca call it, Piazza Grande, from where you can admire the Ducal Palace, dating from the Neoclassical period, and the Teatro del Giglio, one of the oldest public theaters in Italy.
You will then discover the majestic Cathedral of San Martino, a key destination for medieval pilgrims who passed through here to venerate the image of Christ's "Holy Face," still a symbol of the city. Inside the sacristy, you can admire the famous sarcophagus of Ilaria del Carretto, created by Jacopo della Quercia.
