Lucca is one of the very few medieval cities that completely saved its surrounding protective walls. Even if they lost their military importance, they became a pedestrian promenade which encircled the old town, although they were used for a number of years in the 20th century for racing cars. They are still fully intact today; each of the four principal sides is lined with a different tree species. Today you can walk in or above them for a unique experience, as you can see in this image shot in fall
Lucca is obviously famous for its Duomo (Cathedral) and the “piazza dell’anfiteatro” where acoustic is so perfect that it is used in summer for open air concerts.
