I’m grateful for those magic moments when we experience a wonderful destination as a family. Exploring Lucca, Tuscany, with kids is one of our favorite activities in all of Italy. Families can bike on the fortified walls that surround the city — it’s an activity that does not get old!
The Joys of Biking in Lucca, Tuscany with Kids
Biking is the perfect way to explore Lucca with school age, tweens, and teenage kids. The road on top of the walls is traffic-free so it’s relaxing for all. The roads in the city center have limited traffic, but there are still enough cars that the interior streets are best explored on foot before or after the bike ride.
The architecture in Lucca is wonderful. The city is very walkable and you can see highlights within a half-day excursion.
Piazza dell’Anfiteatro is the perfect venue for lunch on a sunny day with a huge open space for kids to run around if the biking doesn’t burn off enough steam.
Lucca has many nooks and crannies to explore (and great shopping). Bikes are available in all sizes and reasonably priced at rental companies in the city. This is a must-do family activity!
