Outtanding - This had been a fun and informative evening with a delightful guide. Diletta went above and beyond what I
May 2020
Tour Date: THURSDAY, 2nd May 2019 (The date required by Tripadvisor doesn't go back before Covid times)...
My guide, Diletta arrived at our meeting point at the elected time. No one else joined the tour which was great; I could practise my Italian and ask lots of questions. From the train station, we walked past the majestic city walls and enjoyed a view of Lucca before diving into local life.

Our first food stop was in a local bakery. My mouth watered as we entered Pizza da Felice. First tasting, Cecina (che chen a); a wonderful tasty light chick pea flatbread, best eaten hot. Next, a slice of pizza washed down with a glass of Melotti beer; now under the name of the Dutch Heineken umbrella.

Piazza Antelminelli was our next stop and the site of the beautiful Romanesque marble Cattedrale di San Martino. The Cathedral was built during the 6th century, at that period the most central and important areas were already too congested, hence it’s unusual location.

At first glance the square appears a bit devoid of character with its wide-open spaces and different architectural styles and buildings from different eras, but wait and you will soon feel how the Duomo emanates a soft tranquillity.

We then headed to a favourite local spot: San Michele in Foro Square. This is where locals come to meet up with one another, typically for a friendly chat in a nice coffee bar.

Located in the centre is Chiesa di San Michele in Foro, a Roman Catholic basilica church. It is built over the ancient Roman forum. Until 1370 it was the seat of the Consiglio Maggiore (Major Council), the commune's most important assembly. It is dedicated to Archangel Michael.

Lucca’s locals love going for Aperitivo after work, meeting with friends and spending a few hours indulging in a glass of good wine and some savoury snacks. And because this tour is all about showing me how the locals live, we stop at an old vineria called Vinarkia Della Pavona della sophi s.n.c. This is a small wine bar typical of the Tuscan tradition.

It was pleasant sitting in the outside courtyard, chatting to Diletta. She made it feel like friends hanging out while also giving great information about Lucca. The glass of Vermentino and the generous Aperitivo were equally enjoyable.

Our third stop was the Farmacia located in Piazza San Michele. In 1855, this beautiful Art Nouveau pharmacy was the scene of Doctor Pasquale Massagli’s new concoction, a quina elixir named China Massagli. It is prepared with cinchona bark, which arrives directly from the Amazon rainforest. The bark is put to macerate in pure alcohol and decalcified water, together with aromatic herbs and officinal roots. After a long period, during which it is emulsified and filtered twice, the elixir is ready to be consumed, even in long drinks with ice, both as an aperitif and a digestif.

We continued through the city as she pointed out the history of the towers and all that Lucca has to offer. Lastly, we stopped in the beautiful square for our final Aperitivo.

After a few minutes of walking through the attractive streets, we reached Amphitheatre Square, the only oval square in Italy that takes the place of the typical Roman amphitheatre. We stopped here at Bollicina, finally relaxing with a glass of Monte Carlo Rossi Dating back to the year 846, and of course, a side of pepper, prosciutto, pecorino cheese chicken liver pate and mushroom pate.

This tour was a brilliant introduction to Lucca. Our tour guide, Luca, was so fun and his love for his city was infectious. We started on time, and managed to pack lots in. We learned lots about Lucca, in between trying the local beer, wine and snacks. We visited some really cute little local bars, that had interesting histories that I'm not sure we would ever have found on our own. In fact, we all ended up staying in the last bar long after the tour had finished, because we didn't want it to end. That's always a clear sign of a really good tour. Thanks for a brilliant night Luca!
