All reviews roman amphitheater oval shape watch the world souvenir shops lots of restaurants flower market people watching great place to people watch glass of wine beautiful square roman times lovely atmosphere gelato gelateria via fillungo narrow streets old city
The moment you enter by one of the four entrances you feel the rich history, the uniformity of the shape of the space, which is oval and the non-uniformity of the buildings, each with their own scale and character.

There isn't a lot here, kind of touristy, but a nice place that comes alive at dinner time. If you walk by earlier in the day there isn't much going on but a few shops to walk through. At dinner time it's a different story...More
We visited Lucca, with so many things to see we cane across this picturesque bustling square. Lots of places to have a drink or eat and take in the atmosphere. Wasn’t too busy end of August. Would definately come back.
We visited this place after few years. We found it even more busy than before.
It is really though to enjoy it in there because of the noise and amount of people in there.
We feel that the place is losing its atmosphere which is...More
It is very pretty, and in perfect keeping with Lucca itself, quite small. Bars and cafes nestle in the terraced piazza. They tend to be more expensive than those a few streets out.
Worth a look, with an obligatory photo!
Lucca is a great city in Tuscany with a very interesting history including the construction of the city wall and the fact that it wasn't invaded. The wall is very wide with lots of room to walk, bike ride, etc. Only spent part of a...More
Lovely piazza, personally I think it’s a bit exaggerated in its ‘roman-ness’ but it is still a lovely place to soak up some toscan atmosphere, which sadly means quite touristy in summer ... had a good lunch, albeit pricey compared to other places, then strolled...More

Hi, I hope I am not too late with this. We travelled by car so cannot comment on the public transport other than to say that I know others who have used trains without problems. The main Piazza are both worth a visit, as is the Cathedral where you will see the Santa Croce.

Hi, thank you for asking the questions. I can only give you what my wife and I enjoyed, having stayed in Lucca for one whole month. First of all, Best non-tourist place to eat is outside the ancient walls. Catch a taxi or bus to the San Marco area east of the city (I think it's the Red bus line to S.Vito), a couple of miles up the road. A quaint little restaurant called Ristorante MORENO. Lunchtime special (weekdays only) is 2 courses, wine, water, bread and coffee for ten euros each. Great value, you won't get better anywhere else. Inside the city walls best value is Bar Martini. Since you have only a 'few' hours, best to bike around on top of the walls (you'll see), go into the Amfitheatre and visit Piazza Napoleone for a drink. Hope this helps. Personally, I don't think it is enough time to really check it out, and absorb the energy of antiquity this wondrous ancient city has to offer. Good luck.
