Lucca Easter Monday

by JulsB

Have booked to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa Easter Monday and then planned to head to Lucca later in the day. Is it going to be worth it or is everything going to be closed?

RE: Lucca Easter Monday

by JuliaF

Hi Julie,

Lucky you! Italy at Easter! I have been to Pisa and Lucca several times, although not at Easter. I am sure because of the tourisum there will be plenty open. Perhaps not as many shops as usual, but certainly Restaurants and places of interest would be. I don't know if you have been before, but Lucca is a particularly lovely place, lots of places to eat, very historical, an amazing walled city, well worth a wonder around even if there are a a few places closed. I hope you enjoy it!

Just the reply I was hoping for. You have convinced me to go ahead with our plans. No I haven't been to Lucca before. We are travelling from New Zealand so this is a big trip for us.Thanks for your help

Travel Tips for Lucca

September Celebrations: Exhibitions

by illudiumqh36

There are two main exhibition areas in town:
the first is San Micheletto. Former a convent, now it is open for exhibitions, courses and for the city university that is going to start lessons very soon.
The second spot it's in the tensioned structure beside the Sport Palace, near the Walls in the outer parte between Porta Santa Maria and Porta San Donato.

Traffic Nightmare

by pigletsmom

Make sure you are not driving into the old city of Lucca on a day when there is a soccer game or antique market. The traffic jams that are created rival New York City or Los Angeles. You can waste hours in traffic, literally.

An "off-the-beaten-path" restaurant

by illudiumqh36 about Trattoria da Buatino

It's a historical (for people of Lucca) trattoria in Borgo Giannotti, a street right outside the walls from the side of Porta S. Maria.
It's a cute, cheap and family-managed trattoria.
You won't find here particular dishes, but you will feel like at home in this warm restaurant.

Jazz music is usually played live on Tuesday.

A particular note: they are used to buy used chairs, so it can be possible that at your table everyone has a different seat. Funny!

Church S Giovanni

by prleprle

This 12th century church has a 16th century façade. During a recent excavation, workers discovered that there are five structures or layers below the existing church. It sits atop a Lombard church, which was Lucca's cathedral until the early 700's. The Lombard church was built over the top of a 4-5th century paleochristian church. That church was constructed over a Roman temple, which was built atop Roman houses. When I was there most of the interior was still under reconstruction so I couldn’t see much of the church inside.

Moderne...

by coceng

This looks moderne but kinda retained its old charms...
Some of the buildings in Lucca are being restored & some you could still see the 'old charms' intact; You just have to walk around the maze streets !
