I'm glad I saw the architecture and pondered the history while walking inside the piazza and around the outside. However, I visited on a somewhat warm summer day and it felt like an oven inside. I didn't stay long. The restaurants didn't seem to have...More

It's a place to see while in Lucca. But don't spend much time there. There are too many other interesting places to see. The piazza is loaded with tourist food, tourist shops etc.

A nice piazza with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. There are no cars allowed, so it is very pleasant to just wander and enjoy the atmosphere.

It is pretty and knowing the history here helps to put it in perspective. The restaurants and bars are okay. More geared towards the tourists and expensive.

I love Lucca, and this is for me, the best spot. Lots of small shops, cafes, and restaurants. Good spot to relax, and watch the procession of humanity.

This square was designed by the architect Nottolini in 1830. He demolished some of the buildings that were in the centre to create the square. Great place these days to grab a drink or a meal in One of the many restaurants encircling the square.

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... More
