Nothing for Me
"The panoramic view"
The beach looked very large and clean. The problem is that is appears all to be private, so that costs money. The city name means "way of the kings". The old new city is only from early 1500's when Lucca wanted access to the sea and the town became commerciliazed. Before then, the Romans used it as an outpost against the Ligurians from 100AD. It became a mecca for fishing and boat building.
Traffic and parking can be a problem, but the streets are wide and the whole area feels "clean". There are tree forests at either end, making the area beautiful in color.
The pier to the end is a nice view of the city and some locals fish here.
The geographic view shows how a narrow sliver of land is along the beach and then the mountains climb right into the peaks. The Appenine and Apuan moutains make up a lot of the territory north of Lucca. Along the sea and that level are of course Viareggio, going up to Massa and Carrara area. They make use of the beach amenities/
