Activities for Children on Holiday in LUCCA
Here are some tips for activities for children vacationing in Lucca, Tuscany. Trips to downtown Lucca are a must.
Here you will find ice cream shops around every corner. The first thing you have to teach children is that in Italy ice cream is called GELATO, and is the best ice cream ever. It’s easy to be on holiday with children in Italy, here you get the world’s best pizza and pasta. In the center of Lucca it’s popular to rent bikes (they have all types – children’s bikes, tandem bikes …), and take a ride on the city walls. It’s free of cars, and a nice, wide road around the whole city. The city wall is 4.3 km, and along the way there are several playgrounds. Why not buy fresh foccacia, croissant, ham, cheese and sun-ripened tomatoes, and have a picnic on the city walls.
