Runner on the ground - LAPO and his team

10 years of running

The ancient walls of Lucca are so tempting that they urge you to grab your running shoes and go!

The walls of Lucca bound an ideal track: flat, tree-lined, wide, pedestrian-friendly, and with gorgeous views all year round. You will enjoy beautiful views of the rooftops, the pretty balconies and secret gardens of the old palaces, the bell towers popping up here and there, the high mountains in the far distance. Join me up and down the walls and even inside them. Let me describe the history and curiosities of this incredible Renaissance fortification that intimidated even the mighty Medici family from Florence.

We will further run through the narrow winding city streets. When you least expect it, you’ll see the shiny mosaic of Saint Frediano. Next comes the intricate patterns on the facade of Saint Martin, the famous fountains, the lively Napoleon square and the unique oval square of the Amphitheater.

The tour is suitable for every kind of runner. There are no difficult uphill climbs or uneven ground. The duration of the tour depends on your personal pace.

The pick-up service is only available if your hotel/apartment is inside the city walls. Otherwise, the tour will start at the standard meeting point.

    Perfect morning

    Go!Running is my go-to when traveling in Italy so I scheduled a run with Lapo during my visit to Lucca. He was a pleasure to run and talk with. Lots of local history as well as interesting stories related to his running career. You know it’s been a good run when it is over way too soon! Looking forward to the next adventure with this group.

    Myself and my husband wanted to see the walls and streets of Lucca with a local expert and that’s exactly what we got. Lapo was full of facts, dates and info about the local architecture. He provided us with funny anecdotes and great pictures. The next day we returned and felt that we knew the place and visited sites that he recommended. I would highly suggest this especially towards the start of your trip.
    A wonderful and different way to see a unique Tuscan town.
