October visit

by bettymissy

Hi I have just booked a short visit to Lucca for October and would be grateful for some tips. Can any one help with weather advice ie how cold and how rainy it may be(hopefully it will be neither. Also our stay includes a Sunday does this make a difference to the shop and restaurant opening times. We are staying at a b&b called La Romera is there anyone out there who has visited and could tell us what its like it looks good on the website! Thanks

Sorry can't help with your specific questions as I have only spent one afternoon in Lucca but just to say if you do one thing, hire bikes ( cheap and easy to arrange when you get there ) and cycle along the walls of the old city. It's my best memory of our Italian holiday.

RE: October visit

After spending the last three summer holidays in the Lucca area, I can tell you that absolutely no shops were open on a Sunday in the summer. Sunday is "family day" so I imagine the same is true for Autumn/winter. As for rain, etc. bring a brolly and raincoat. Temperatures can be very mild up until November.

Hope this helps.

Travel Tips for Lucca

September Celebrations: Procession & Fireworks

by illudiumqh36

On the 13th there is the main celebration. A religious procession walk through the streets of old town, leaded by the Bishop, showing old flags and holy images. At the end all the people rushes on the Walls to see the fireworks starting at about 10.30-11 PM.

Lucca by Bicycle

by laallen

Bring or rent a bicycle and tool around the entire perimeter of the old town wall. It takes quite a while, and it's a different way to see Lucca, actually many of the locals use bicycle to get around.

A typical "trattoria" in town #2.

by illudiumqh36 about Da Giulio

A family-managed trattoria with a very warm atmosphere and friendly staff. It's the most famous trattoria in Lucca, a bit hard to find but anyone could tell you the way to find it. In the 60s and 70s many italian actors and directors used to come here... many signed pics on the walls since then.
One of the few places in Lucca where you can find origial old-syle poor Lucchese cooking (we were a city of merchants but also of farmers...and you know in Tuscany the cooking come from countryside), it has been closed for a period but I think it's going to reopen soon. Try the popular soups: Zuppa, Farro e Farinata.

Palazzo Mansi.

by Maurizioago

Palazzo Mansi belonged to a family of silk merchants. It dates from the end of the XVI century to the beginning of the XVII.

It houses an interesting collection of paintings and several rooms where you can admire frescoes, old furniture and tapestries.

One of the highlights of the palace is a big dance hall with beautiful frescos.

At the heart of the old city

by Jefie

The church of San Michele in Foro along with its piazza stand at the center of the old city, where the Roman forum used to be. Construction of the church began in the 11th century, the campanile was completed in the 12th century, and finally the Romanesque facade was added in the 13th century. The facade is actually much taller than the main structure of the church, and different metals had to be used to make sure it would be sturdy enough to resist strong winds. The same goes for the 4 m tall statue of Archangel St. Michael, to whom the church is dedicated, which sits on top of the facade. The church is open to visitors daily free of charge, but unfortunately it was too dark inside to take pictures without a flash. There were, however, a couple of interesting paintings, including one by Filippino Lippi.

The Piazza di San Michele is surrounded by lovely 15th and 16th century palazzi, many of which have now been converted into banks. For this reason, there isn't as much atmosphere on this piazza compared with the Piazza Anfiteatro, but I still enjoyed it. There were a couple of nice little cafes, and a man was playing the accordion when we were there. Definitely a good place to stop by for coffee in the morning!
