Lucca, Italy
Known as a town of a hundred churches, ancient Lucca is famous for its majestic historical architecture and Medieval constructions.

Lucca, Italy is located in the Tuscany region in close proximity to Pisa, Italy, which makes it a perfect destination for an extensive day trip.

The town was of great importance during the Roman Empire, having been a place where Julius Caesar met with Crassus. Moreover, Lucca is home to one of the oldest but still intact Renaissance fortifications in Italy.

However, the most outstanding and remarkable buildings in Lucca are the churches. Here are just several examples of truly impressive religious structures you should witness:
  • Lucca Cathedral
  • San Michele in Foro
  • Basilica of San Frediano

If you seek for a relaxing walk, away from the heat of the Italian sun, Orto Botanico Comunale di Lucca is an ideal choice. Established at the beginning of the 19th century by the Duchess of Parma, this botanical garden contains a collection of numerous species, including medicinal plants and ones from the intertropical regions.
