      Carlos, a gentleman with a horse and carriage, took us for a ride throughout Lucca. He brought us to an area -- it seemed to be within the wall itself, with huge rooms through which we rode with the horse and carriage. Does anyone know the story about or the history of this area?

      We will be travelling from Rome to Pisa by train and then onto Lucca. Would you advise whether bus or train from Pisa is more convenient. Also where do the buses to Lucca leave from in Pisa as we had hoped to leave bags at station and sightsee a little in Pisa before travelling on to Lucca.

      Any advice will be gratefully received. Thanks

      We are flying to Florence next April and then we have to go to Lucca historic center where we will stay for two months. I read that there is a bus that stops at Florence airport and goes to Lucca (I'd rather take a direct bus than the train). I enter a site with the time schedule but it is in italian and I do not understand it. Anybody could tell me where to take this bus and the time schedule? We are arriving at noon on April st.

      Looking for quiet hotel

      My husband and I are planning to spend a couple of days in Lucca, Italy the last week of October, 2013. Does anyone have a suggestion for a nice quiet hotel not too far from the train station (we'll arrive from Florence by train).

      I've read some reviews of nicer hotels, but many say that because they are inside the city, there are noise disturbances. I appreciate your feedback.

      Taxi and/or car & driver for Lucca area

      by Sunshine64 Online Now Aug 28, 2012 at 12:45 PM

      A group of friends will be staying in a villa ~10km from Lucca in a few weeks. It has been suggested that we must have a car, but some of us are not interested in driving on our holiday. We might like to have more wine than we should :)

      I found the prices for Radio Taxi Lucca, and they don't seem that unreasonable, especially in going from Lucca TO the Villa. But the other direction has me more concerned.

      Does anyone have experience getting to and from Lucca this way? Or with using a car service such as Tau Touring? Is the taxi reliable/prompt when you call them from 10km out and ask for a pick up? Can you schedule in advance?

      All help greatly appreciated!

      by Barb1322 Online Now Aug 8, 2011 at 8:04 PM

      We will be in Lucca in September. The Not Ordinary Ways (Tuscan Bike It) bike tour to a winery and countryside farm on Thursdays looks great. Has anyone been on this tour? Is it really easy pace? It takes about 5 hours. I really do not want to miss also biking the wall. Should we skip the long countryside tour and just bike the walls and stay inside the city of Lucca? Is there enough to do in Lucca after riding the wall?

      10 days in Lucca - July

      by lisselleC Online Now Jun 27, 2011 at 9:38 AM

      Hi All

      I have a few questions that I hope someone may be able to answer....

      We wil be in Lucca for 10 days in July - one day will be my birthday :-). We are trying NOT to hire a car. We have been to Lucca once before but that was just for the day. We travelled from Florence by bus.

      We are staying in an apartment and like to cook, using fresh local produce. Can anyone recommend a good market? Shop? We like good quality, preferrably organic free range....

      For my birthday (Wed) we were considering a trip to the countryside, with a visit to a vineyard for wine tasting and a relaxing lunch. Can anyone recommend a tour operator that caters for small parties? (We don't fancy spending the day being shepherded around with a large coach party). We dont want to hire a car as we would have to restrict ourselves on the wine tasting - the whole
      point of the visit! Yeh, yeh - I know you're supposed to spit it out!!

      Any alternative suggestions as to how to spend my birthday would be good too.

      We are considering having my special birthday meal on the Thursday, we
      would like to have booked for lunch at La Mora, the Michelin star restaurant outside the city walls but I fear it may have closed as the phone line and website don't work?? Anyone familiar with this restaurant? Can you recommend? I have the details as Via Ludovica, 1748, Fraz. Sesto di Moriano, Ponte a Moriano (Lucca) Phone 0039 0583 406402, Phone and Fax 0039 0583 406135.

      I am currently in the process of creating a spreadsheet of 'eateries' in Lucca and would be happy to accept any recommendations. We like to sample
      authentic local cuisine in trattorias/restaurants that are mainly frequented
      by the locals. We love fine dining but equally love home cooked traditional
      well cooked food - country style. We are happy to go 'off the beaten track'
      if necessary.

      From Friday to Monday we will have two teenagers with us (17year old girl and 19 year old boy)!! The girl is vegetarian. Whilst I don't anticipate this causing much of a problem in Italy it would be nice to take them somewhere on their last night (Mon)where they can enjoy a special meal with a lively atmosphere, I would appreciate any suggestions!

      We are planning to take the teenagers to Florence for a day trip. We
      would prefer to take them on Sunday as they will probably want to rest up
      and see Lucca on Saturday. Monday is their last day so we would prefer to
      stay local so that they can enjoy the evening for their special meal. Is
      Sunday a bad choice? Will there be an issue with opening times, transport
      etc? Also would you recommend the train or the bus? We were thinking of
      taking the train.

      Getting excited now, only one week to go!!!
