To discover Lucca from an unusual point of view, look at it from above. Climb up the Guinigi Tower or keep fit by tackling one by one the 207 steps leading to the top of the Hours Tower. The view is certainly worth the effort and the gaze can sweep over the characteristic roofs of Lucca and fully appreciate the harmony and sophistication of the urban structure. Have fun, if you think so, also trying to locate your holiday letting in Lucca from above.
The historic walls of Lucca are amazing not so much for their 12 metres high but, above all, for the 4 kilometres long and 30 metres wide. To walk along them is very pleasant also because, being so spacious, they have been transformed from a defensive structure to a quiet tree-lined avenue. A very special place, where you can do sports, attend events or, more simply, walk while enjoying the view.
The museum dedicated to Giacomo Puccini, in the city centre, opens the doors of the house where the musician lives. Objects belonging to the composer, costumes, scores, letters and instruments are an interesting testimony of his early years and his early musical approaches.
