One of the gates to the city. We entered in here to find parking. If you walk thru the gate you can get an idea of the width of this giant wall the encompasses the beautiful city.

One of the gates to this old city. All you need to know is look up when underneath and walking through. Nothing else to be said.

You walk into the old city and back ikn time. Lucca is a stop you must make to see the Italy of old. No other place, maybe Siena, has this contrast.

One of the delightful aspects of Lucca is that eveything is old, or at least it looks old. So, the buildings have been converted to modern uses, but they still retain their original character. This district is famous for the old city gate (which looks...More
