Lucca Tuscany

The toponym Lucca derives from the celtic-ligurian root luk, that is “place of swamps”. The irregular outflow of the river Auser, in fact, caused many problems to the city, with continuous floods. Lucca is one of the main cities of art in Italy, renowned also outside of Italy, above all for its intact town-walls of XV and XVII century, that describe a perimeter of approximately 4.450 meters, around the historical nucleus of the city; the same walls, transformed in the second half of the 1800's in a pedestrian walk, and they are one of the best conserved in Europe, also because they were never used in the past centuries. Consequently also the monumental historical center of the city is remained almost intact in its original aspect, and here we can see numerous medieval churches of remarkable architectonic wealth, towers and bell towers, and monumental palaces of stilistic linearity.
