The Green Heart of Lucca: Botanical Garden and Walls


Lucca’s enchanting medieval town is hiding a secret: a charming green heart that many travellers unwittingly overlook. Join us for a gloriously tranquil afternoon, exploring the flora and fauna that hides behind the city walls. Visit the botanical gardens and discover rare magnolia and sequoia trees and indigenous flowers before climbing the walls to enjoy sweeping views across the city. Finish your afternoon with a refreshing scoop of our favourite artisan ice-cream. Buonissimo!
