Parking outside Lucca

We will be staying in Barga and would like to spend a day and evening in Lucca. We will be driving to Lucca, can you tell me anywhere to park outside of the walls coming from the direction from Barga, very happy to do a half hour walk.

Thank you

You'll be arriving into Lucca on the SS12 from Barga and will pass right by the Parcheggio Palatucci. This is located right next to the wall and an easy entry via the Porta S, Donato gate(15min walk to center). This is one of the most inexpensive lots around the city.

Here is a link to the public car parks outside of the ZTL zone, as you can see you can park around the ring road and enter through the nearest "porta": http://www.metrosrl.it/en/park/map

Just to note that the parking near Porta Santa Maria (Viale Carlo Del Prete, Piazzale Martiri della Libertà) is more expensive than further around the ring road on Viale Regina Margherita eg. just outside the Porta San Pietro entrance to the city (near the train station) charges between 08.00 and 20.00 hrs are 20 cents for the first hour then 1 euro/hour thereafter with a maximum charge per day of 6 euros. Note that as you turn off Viale Regina Margherita the 20 or so parking spaces immediately in front of the Porta San Pietro entrance are 1 euro per hour not the 20 cents ones.

There is a completely free parking lot on the north side of Lucca that I always use. It's easy to get to coming from Barga. There are markets on some days here, so sometimes you'll have to park on the other side of Galileo overpass. Enjoy! https://goo.gl/maps/fbaQvr6NJEJ2

From the parking suggested in post No 5 (markets held Wed/Sat mornings) to the city you walk up Via Umberto Tinivella, cross the road at the zebra crossing on the ring road Viale Carlo del Prete, walk along the pathway across the grass to the passageway under the walls which leads to Piazza del Collegio and the church of San Frediano in Piazza San Frediano and into Via Fillungo.

You're welcome, as well as the markets being held there it's also home to the croce rossa/red cross refugee reception centre.
