Lucca to Perugia

One of twelve legendary ancient Etruscan cities, a journey through Perugia’s historic center feels like a journey back in time.

From LuccaA city designed for walking

Lucca is a relatively flat city with roads open to everyone: cars, pedestrians, bicycles, and scooters alike. Although open, priority is given to pedestrians, making Lucca a walk-friendly city. Its impressive walls that surround the heart of the city are well maintained and fully intact. Despite the many years of calm that have rendered the Renaissance-era walls useless, it has now been repurposed. The entire circle is a pedestrian walkway surrounded by an outer lying stretch of green. The pedestrian promenade makes it ideal to see all of Lucca's major gems from above. Once you get back on solid ground, be sure to visit the Duomo di San Martino, the Basilica di San Frediano, and traces of the amphitheatre in Piazza dell'Anfiteatro.

To Perugia Legendarily Romantic

Founded by the Etruscans around the 6th century BC, the city was legendary amongst Roman authors by the time it was assimilated into the Republic. Sitting 1,640 ft above sea level, the old town is partly surrounded two sets of walls. The medieval wall is still largely intact, and has several entrances, such as the Cassero di Porta Sant'Angelo. The inner, Etruscan wall, was built using massive boulders. A few remains of the Roman era still survive, including an amphitheatre outside Porta Marzia, and what is likely a mausoleum under St. Peter’s bell tower. The Piazza IV Novembre, with its magnificent Maggiore Fountain, is the best way to experience the essence of the city. Facing the square is the 13th century Palazzo dei Priori, which houses the National Gallery of Umbria, while the facade of the Cathedral of San Lorenzo boasts the pulpit where Saint Bernardino used to preach.
