Lucca : Michelin's recommendations
Sheltering behind its brick ramparts planted with trees, Lucca has managed to retain its medieval character and remains largely unspoilt. The harmonious pink and ochre shades of its buildings, its beautiful Pisan-style Romanesque churches, the unusual tree-topped Guinigi tower, and the delightful Piazza dell’Anfiteatro which follows the layout of the original Roman amphitheatre, all make this attractive city a delightful place to visit. The city is also famous for its excellent olive oil.
