Lucca: Trekking Bike Rental

4. Lucca: Trekking Bike Rental

Ahoy, brave cyclists: discover Lucca, the wall, the river park, and the lush surrounding countryside with a comfortable trekking bike that allows you to ride on unbeaten paths and unpaved roads. Not sure on your feet yet? Before taking to rough terrain, warm up on Lucca walls: the entire route that rings the city center is ideal for cycling in the open air. Walls are around 4.2 km ( 2,61 mi ) in length and are easy to ride along, as motor vehicles are not permitted. Feel free to freewheel. The old town is mostly pedestrian or restricted to residents only. Conveniently, you can easily reach the river path thanks to a brand new bike path branching directly out from the city center.

What people are saying about Lucca

Very interesting and personal tour. The sketches (reason for the booking) were not needed at all, it was that exciting. The TG made the children curious with many questions, so that they absorbed the explanations in an exciting way. Was also interesting and instructive for us parents. And thanks for the crumbled focchaggi. This tour will be remembered for a long time. Many many thanks.

We had a wonderful cooking experience. It was such much fun learning the Italian cooking style, even though we don’t speak proper Italian. The translator did a great job and we will remember this evening for our life. Thank you!
