Among the many sights that we'll take in are Piazza dell'Anfiteatro--the oval-shaped plaza that now occupies the site of a former Roman amphitheater, and the cathedral of San Martino, which houses Jacopo della Quercia's exquisite sculpture of Ilaria del Carretto that decorates her tomb.
Enjoy one of the many fine restaurants serving genuine Lucchese cuisine or take some time to relax, walking and browsing the shops along the exclusive Via Fillungo. If the mood strikes you, stop in one of the local cafes for a beverage or pastry.
Half an hour after leaving Lucca, you'll be standing in Pisa's "Field of Miracles," where you'll find the Duomo (cathedral), Baptistery, Campo Santo (cemetery) and, of course, Campanile, better known as the Torre Pendente--the Leaning Tower. Be sure to bring your camera so that you can capture all of these amazing sights!
