“Enjoy the view of the Lucca walls while walking around the city. With its 30 meters of height these are the only defensive walls arriving intact until today in the whole world and they are the second longest walls in Europe The Renaissance Lucca walls were erected with a remarkable economic effort in 137 years and represented a deterrent for the enemies. Never involved in war events, the fulcrum of the Lucca defense system, they guaranteed peace and tranquility to the Republic until the arrival of Napoleon.”

Amusement Park
“The Pinocchio Park is a memorial park of the famous fairy tale and is located in Collodi, part of the municipality of Pescia (PT), around 50 km east of Viareggio. You can get there by car or bus. Collodi is the town where Carlo Lorenzini, the author of the Adventures of Pinocchio, spent his childhood and from which he later took his pseudonym. The park is conceived as a theme park for childhood education, it is not the usual amusement park, but rather a place where one has the feeling of retracing a living fairy tale within a path marked by a combination of art and nature. Near the entrance is the sculpture of Emilio Greco of Pinocchio and the Fata, near a flowerbed arranged to draw the effigy of the famous puppet. An area follows with a small theater and a refreshment area. The Piazzetta of mosaics preserves the mosaics of Venturino Venturi. Following the "Village of Pinocchio" and the various sculptures, made by Pietro Consagra (the Carabiniere, the Gatto and the Volpe and the Serpente), Marco Zanuso and Augusto (Bobo) Piccoli (the Grande Pescecane).”

“scarpe comode per salire e una giornata serena per arrivare in cima e godere il panorama...Look out across the skyline of Lucca (from the wall) and you will see the city’s most important tower, easily identifiable from the rest. The 14th century Guigini tower has a rooftop garden with trees growing on it!The floor below the garden was the kitchen, from where the chefs and cooks could go upstairs to pick their produce and herbs. Now the tower is open for those strong of thigh to climb. The 360 degree views of the city are spectacular, especially on a clear day.At one time there were around 250 towers in Lucca, but now there are only 9. These were defendable homes during a time of constant raids and also considered a place to hide during the plagues. Guigini was a wealthy silk merchant who at one time ruled Lucca. He built the tower attached to his palazzo as a sign of his wealth and power.
