Lucca is one of the cities most loved all of Tuscany, a stop that can not really miss in a classic itinerary to the discovery of the region.
Most of the attractions in Lucca today show its ancient history: from the trace of the Roman amphiteater that can be seen in the shape of the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro to the archeological remains under the 12th century church of Saints Giovanni and Reparata.
As the walls lost their military importance, the top of the walls became a pedestrian promenade, today one of Lucca’s main attractions. The area around the walls is well taken care of, with green grass and trees everywhere along the walls.
Carrara is on the Carrione river, some 100 km west-northwest of Florence. It is worldly famous for the white or blue-grey marble quarried there.
The ancient art of stone working, which has been active in the Ligurian-Apuan civilizations since the Roman age, was focused on the sandstone, but the real thing that attracted Romans and that attracts tourist nowadays, is a white and precious stone: the marble.
