Overview
Discover the Lucca eateries that no foodie should miss with this morning walking tour. A great introduction to the city for traveling gastronomes, the food tour showcases the regional treats enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Sip on espresso, sample chocolate, and then raise a glass to Lucca over a lunch of artisanal cheese, cured meat, and wine. Numbers are limited to just 12 for a small-group experience.
Highlights
  • Explore Lucca with a guide to sightsee and sample the regional cuisine 
  • Find the café bars where the Lucca locals get their caffeine and sugar fix
  • Discover the best viewpoints and photo stops around Lucca’s city walls
  • Try delicacies you might not otherwise sample, such as the delicious Colonnata lard
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Lucca train station, and walk with your group to Cathedral Square where bars selling espresso await. Take the lead of the locals and start your day with a coffee, swiftly followed by a bite of a sweet ring-shaped cake (buccellato di Lucca). With your caffeine-and-sugar hit taken care of, you’ll explore Lucca’s main shopping street where Renaissance palazzi and artisan shops line the pavements. The street leads the way to one of the city’s esteemed chocolatiers, ready with sweets for you to sample. Continue with a stroll along Lucca’s legendary city walls and then stop in Piazza dell'Anfiteatro for a lunch of local specialties. Bazzone ham, marble-white lard from Colonnata, fennel salami, and pecorino cheese from the mountainous Garfagnana region are among the treats, along with a local wine or beer, of course. Your walking tour then ends at the San Michele in Foro church.

This was my second tour with Urban Adventures. I have done one for Apertivo at “Happy Hour” and most recently a mid morning food tour. I was lucky enough to have the same tour guide , Diletta, two years apart! You catch her love of Lucca, it’s history, food and hospitality
