There is an underpass at the Lucca train station, with a ramp, so it is ok to take your bike. Go through the underpass (heading South, away from the walled town) and turn left into Via Nottolini. After 50 metres, turn right into Via Tempietto....More

Firstly, it isn't Notolini - it's Nottolini. This is an acqueduct built in the 19th century by the eponymous architect to provide drinking water to the city of Lucca from springs which rise in the hills of Guamo a little to the south of the...More

Best tackled in the morning when you can make use of the shade, this remarkable piece of engineering is well worth exploring. You have to be prepared to lug the bike up some steps over the dual carriage way, but the rest is fairly straightforward....More

A great diversion from the non-stop food-fest that a trip to Lucca can quickly become. We started at the cistern end and walked the length. A very nice walk with several EXCELLENT water sources along the way - locals were filling baskets on one-liter bottles...More

An amazing piece of architecture, just a short walk from Lucca. You can also get a great photo from the top of the tower.

Early one morning we decided to walk along the aquaduct (we had already cycled along some of the arches) from the last arches up past the various cysterns and up to the golden Latin words. We continued to walk up along the construction and wished...More

I would recommend if you are going to head to this place, be sure to drop into the tourist information centre beforehand so they can arm you with a map and give you precise directions to it. We got lost en-route and couldn't find it!!

10 minutes walk outside the walls of Lucca. An early 1800 construction that provided the city with fresh waters from the mountins far away. The tower is closed but....a very thrilling and fascinating place with a wonderful view on top after climbing the dangerous stairs...More
