On the walls of Lucca and the Nottolini aqueduct

Acquedotto Nottolini

 

A tour which allows to travel through history through the architectural curiosities of Lucca. 

This fantastic itinerary lets one appreciate an interesting and particular aspect of Lucca 

Our travel starts with an introductory tour around the walls of Lucca: this will allows us  to understand the techniques used by the population to get the supply of drinkable water.

Once out of the City walls, we will follow a country path where we will be able to appreciate the plantation of the flat land of Lucca and where it is easy to see also the cattle grazing. We will continue along  a suggestive path thanks to the watchful  presence of the  Nottolini aqueduct : the aqueduct gets its name from the architect Lorenzo Nottolini who  was given the task of building it between 1823 and 1833.

At the bottom of the aqueduct we will find the small Temple of San Concordio which preserves the antique cistern, built in neoclassical style. Just enough time to fill  our water bottles and we will get back to the centre of Lucca through the same route as we came.
