The town of Lucca is probably the most charming of the "art cities" of Tuscany, Italy. Lucca is small enough to make strolling to every corner of it a pleasure, even in mid-summer, and its intact city wall has been converted into a relaxing promenade. The Apuan Alps form the backdrop of Lucca and the alpine area known as the Garfagnana is well worth more than one day trip.
The principal architectural masterpieces of Lucca are the Duomo of San Martino and the
Church of San Frediano, while the Palazzo Pubblico now contains a fine gallery of paintings and a collection of illuminated manuscripts.
There are innumerable other artistic and architectural delights to be
sought out and experienced in Lucca.
