Become a local for the day as you join your guide outside Lucca Train Station.

Discover arts and crafts shops selling unique souvenirs, and see some of Lucca’s more than 100 churches.
Enjoy an impressive view of Lucca before diving into the local life in the city center, where the beautiful Romanesque marble cathedral stands.
Then, head to a favorite 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 bar.
While there, stop at a local bakery to try cecina, a traditional, focaccia bread with unexpected ingredients, alongside a glass of Italian beer or wine.
Next, go the only oval square in Italy that takes the place of a typical Roman amphitheater. Relax close there in a charming Vineria with a glass of Lucca wine, along with an essential side of Tuscan crostini and pecorino cheese. Your tour ends here but feel free to hang around, order another drink and soak up the lively atmosphere of the square.
