Pleasant place to watch the world by. Buy a gelato, grab a bench and watch the world go by. There were artists painting which were interesting to watch. a variety of restaurants and outside the "amphitheatre" shopping streets. Okay its a tourist type area but very pleasant all the same.

Take the time to sit with a cigar and a glass of wine. Many excellent restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

This is worth a visit primarily for its origin in Roman times. The buildings erected around the former forum are attractive and interesting and there are a few excellent shops selling gift items. The coffee is excellent as it is just about everywhere in Italy but the food is mediocre to average although not unreasonably expensive. Located just off Via Filungo, the main shopping street in Lucca and surrounded by restaurants in the nearby streets, it is difficult to miss the Anfiteatro. Pop in, take a few photos, have a coffee then move on

While not unique, the gradual conversion of the old Roman amphitheatre into a series of shops is interesting. There are little boutiques as well a some cafes.

Built on site of a Roman arena ..it’s wonderful to see how clearly later generations just build on what has been left behind. It was surprisingly atmospheric. Have a coffee and soak up the memories that must be in the very stones of the place
