Lucca is one of the main Italian cities of art, know even abroad for its intact Walls (XV-XVI century) that surround the main center of the town, with a length of 4450 mt. The historical center is consequently intact and it has its own original appearance, so it has a lot of precious buildings, such as several medieval churches with the highest architectural richness, towers, belltowers and monumental palaces from the Renaissance with an exquisite and valuable style.
The city has extraordinary urban spaces: the most famous is certainly the Amphitheatre Square, built by architect Lorenzo Nottolini upon the ruins of the Roman amphitheatre, with its own unique structure. The main street is the historical, narrow and medieval Via Fillungo, which brings the most famous shops of the city together. Other very interesting squares are St. Michael Square, main center of the city, and St. Martin Square, main religious place, where the mostly known St. Martin’s Cathedral has been built.
