Very difficult to find but well worth it. A wonderful place to sit & relax & watch the world go by in a large choice of cafes & restaurants situated around the piazza.

Really nice square you must see whenever you have the opportunity! It is really something extra with the house in a circle and all the restaurants. I liked it even more in the evening with all the lights

We visited in June as part of a guided tour so learnt a little of the history of the place before we had some free time here. You can imagine the shape of the amphitheatre with the surrounding building all around and apparently within the...More

Simply a Piazza to be seen! Fantastically beautiful! Built on the base of a Roman Anfiteatro - it is a square unique and of memorable atmosphere. Many accessible but very good spots to eat and enjoy excellent Tuscan wine.

It's charming but oh dear you are prey to the expensive cafes and shops. Noisy music and trashy souvenirs finish off the experience

This is Lucca's main square lined by restaurants. Quaint place that gives the impression of a walled sqare within the walled city.

It's a busy area and very touristy. Lots of places to eat and drink around. Currently there are a few sculptures in the city from a Costa Rican artist Jorge Jimenez of which one takes pride as place in the centre. Nice to people watch...More

The Piazza itself is really worth the visit, but it is rather overfilled with bars/restaurants/tourist shops than it used to be. It might be better to visit in the evening than at the height of the day when it is almost as crowded as Oxford...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... More
