Overview

On this small group walking tour lead by an English-speaking guide, you will indulge in the culinary traditions of Lucca as you learn about the town's illustrious history. The starting point for this tour is Lucca train station. From here you will stroll along the fortified walls, built in order to protect the city from outside invaders and from overflows of the Serchio river. Today they act as a pleasant public walkaway, shaded by centuries-old trees.

Piazza San Martino where the beautiful cathedral stands; its gleaming white marble facade is covered with magnificent Romanesque sculptures. From here you will weave through the narrow streets until you reach the main shopping area. According to Italian tradition, the best way to start your day is with an espresso and breakfast pastries.

Your first stop will be at a cozy local shop, you will try the famous buccellato, a delicious sweetened bread with a sprinkling of dried fruits, along with some other local sweets and coffee! Next comes Piazza dell'Anfiteatro. Built during ancient Roman times for spectacles and gladiator games, it is now a popular gathering place for a drink. There are a variety of shops selling regional products such as prosciutto bazzone, lardo di colonnato, fennel-infused finocchiona salami, crostini misti and pecorino cheese produced in the Garfagnana mountains. Here you will have a tasting of cured meats, pecorino cheese, and bruschetta
