On our way home from a night of opera and dinner we happened on the Piazza with a DJ spinning tunes and tons of folks enjoying the late evening. Families, couples and young singles.

Amazing piazza oval shaped surrounded by yellow/brown houses of different tall. Bar trattorie and gift shop are numerous and offer breakfast and meals are based on local dishes. While there visiting Lucca is a must to see.

Piazza Anfiteatro is a highlight of Lucca. It's full of little cafes and restaurants where everyone will find something tasty for themselves. It gets busy during the weekends and in the evenings. Great place to relax, enjoy the Tuscan wine and breathe in Italy. TIP: Every third weekend of the month there's an antique market in Lucca (see my photos).... More

This piazza is very typical and can be visited anytime in the day or at night. You will find a lot of caffè and restaurants. Maybe too much for tourists and less typical

Had been in Lucca several days and took a daily walk to the Piazza Antiteatro. However, on Saturday night this piazza is alive with live music and hundreds of people. Tables for late dining are set up everywhere in the piazza. Fun.

This old town is the best place in Lucca with ancient buildings surrounded by great wall. You can find shops and restaurants here, spare at least two hours to look around. Recommended if joint with Pisa leaning tower.

We really enjoyed walking around Lucca in a day trip we paired with Pisa. This plaza was almost empty when we were there. This made it feel huge and I really enjoyed some of the panoramic pictures I was able to take without people moving about.

Must see this piazza (square) which is round and all of the houses surround it. Avoid these touristic restaruants because they are some of the worst in the city but visit the shops including Le Due Sorelle.
