What to expect

This Lucca tour is all about experiencing the city the real way, by becoming a local for a day! Italy is famed for the importance it places on food and drink, so of course, we’ll learn about (and taste!) lots of it as we go. And along the way, we’ll uncover majestic city walls, narrow roads, tall towers, and arts and crafts shops. You’ll also realise why Lucca is known as the city of 100 churches.

Your Lucca tour will start at the city’s train station, and from there we’ll walk past the majestic city walls and enjoy a view of Lucca before diving into local life. We’ll head to the city centre, where the beautiful Romanesque marble Cathedral stands.

We’ll then head to a favourite local spot: San Michele in Foro Square. This is where locals come to meet up with one another, typically for a friendly chat in a nice coffee bar.

Lucca’s locals love going for aperitivo after work — meeting with friends and spending a few hours indulging in a glass of good wine and some savoury snacks. And because this tour is all about showing you local life, of course our first stop will be an old vineria, a small wine bar typical of the Tuscan tradition, where we’ll order a glass of wine with a snack.

We’ll then head to Amphitheatre Square, the only oval square in Italy that takes the place of the typical Roman amphitheatre. We’ll relax with a glass of artisan beer produced in the Garfagnana mountains — and, of course, you can’t sample beer without a side of cured meats and pecorino cheese.

We’ll then head to a local lounge where we can try fettunta, a toasted bread with extra olive oil — as well as another glass of quality wine.

Our last stop will be a small wine bar where we can have our final drink. And if you want to truly go local, then it’s time to try the typical liqueur of Lucca, Biadina, made from a secret recipe and served with pine nuts.
