A guide to the lovely old town of Lucca in north-western Tuscany, covering the villas around Lucca, the Garfagnana, and the Versilia. The walled city of Lucca sits under the Appenines, close to Pisa and Florence, but a little out-of-the-way for the hordes of tourists that descend on these other cities. It is an architectural delight with buildings dating back as far as the Romans, but perfected during the Renaissance. It is the gateway to the mountainous Garfagnana region, and this pocket-sized handbook guides the reader in five walking itineraries through the city and drives to its surroundings. The walls, palaces, churches, piazzas and museums are all illustrated in colour, and there is information on cafes, restaurants, markets, hotels, transport, and museum opening times.
