Lucca: a town to discover by bike!

Lucca is a small medieval town in the heart of Tuscany.
Its strategic location and its 85,000 inhabitants make it a quiet, pleasant and desirable tourist destination.
Many famous people have been linked to this ancient village: some that stand out among these include Dante Alighieri, who spent much his exile from Florence in Lucca, the sister of Napoleon Bonaparte, Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi, to whom the Porta Elisa gate in the city walls was dedicated. The two great prides of the city are still, however, the great composer, Giacomo Puccini, born in Lucca in 1858 and author of wonderful operatic works, such as "La Boheme" and "Madama Butterfly", and the city walls.
The entire route that encircles the city centre is ideal for walking and cycling in the open air; the walls are around 4.2 km ( 2,61 mi ) long and are easy to walk along as motor vehicles are not permitted.
The old town is also mostly pedestrian or restricted to residents only.
