Lucca is one of Tuscany’s most beloved artistic cities, with nicknamed the town of a hundred churches on account of its incredible number of places of worship. It is the birthplace of famous composer Puccini. whose great pieces of La Boheme, Madam Butterfly that I love. Lucca, in Tuscany, has a historic center completely enclosed by walls that are some of Italy’s best-preserved ramparts. The top of the walls has been made into tree-lined pathways so you can walk or ride a bike atop the walls. The oval-shaped piazza that used to be a Roman amphitheater is fascinated. Unlike many Tuscan towns, Lucca is flat rather than on a hill. I only wish we had more time to explore this beautiful city with so many medieval architectures.
Pisa’s Piazza del Duomo with the famous Leaning Tower was declared as a World Heritage Site in 1987. The architectural blend of Romanesque and Gothic styles is uniquely beautiful.
