What people are saying about Province of Lucca

We met up with our guide, Anna - she was an amazing stortteller, and gave us a great tour around the center of Lucca. We had a 4 year Old girl with us, and she was totally focused. The idea with the notebook is really good, but it could have been even better if there also was notebooks for the ‘grown ups’.

Highly recommend! Our kids (8 and 5) were absolutely engaged the whole time. Our guide Lucia, who was born in Lucca had little activities for them to do before each sight along the way and present the tour to interest and engage the children. They LOVED it!

Great private guided tour of Lucca where everyone is catered for. All questions were patiently answered. Even the little one liked it.

Absolutely fantastic tour. Kids loved the lady, Anna. She was so knowledgeable and had a really great way with the kids
