Great stop in Tuscany for coffee in a Roman setting!
Sep 2020 • Family
When you are in Lucca, one of the best little cities in the world, it is great for a stop for coffee or wine or a little bite to eat and bake in the sun inside the amphitheater… Take a rest and plan the rest of the day, and people watch!

Huge outdoor restaurant
Aug 2021
The square was built on the site of the old Roman amphitheater. Now the evening is extremely lively, as there are many restaurants with many outdoor seating.

A picture perfect destination in Lucca
May 2021
If you visit Lucca, and you really should, don't miss Piazza Anfiteatro. Once a Roman Stadium, preserves its shape and is now a great destination for locals or tourists ... and foodies. Don't miss the surrounding streets and local restaurants.

There are shops and restaurants and caffés. Spend a buck and enjoy the space. NB. Several have misters under the umbrellas on hot days.

An amazing historic Amphitheatre
Aug 2020
This spot is a must-see when in Lucca. It's actually an old roman amphitheatre and held up to 10'000 spectators back in its time. After the Roman downfall it wasn't used as such anymore and was falling apart partly. In the end being used just for salt storage.

Luckily in the 19th Century it was being rebuilt to what it is today. The shape is still visible as are some parts of the old Amphitheatre. Now it's a lively spacious square with lots of restaurants and cafés and shops. Since 2006 together with the old town of Lucca part of the UNESCO world heritage.

It's fun to have a walk around the Anfiteatro, sitting down and having a drink, watching the world go by. A beautiful spot.

The place has kept the original round shape of a Roman amphitheater - impressive row of buildings around
and a great place to enjoy your aperitivo at the end of the day :)
