The Villas of Lucca
Looking for antique homes of prestigious patrician families in the fertile plain of Lucca among vineyards and olive groves.
It is impossible to visit Lucca and not pay a visit to the villas only just out of the city.
Just past the city walls we will follow the cycle path of the Serchio towards north up until we meet the Fraga stream.
Continuing along the stream within a few minutes we will arrive at Villa Olivia, Villa Grabau and Villa Reale. In this last villa we will make a stop to visit the fantastic lemons garden, the lake and the cultivations of the camellias.
We will continue to pedal until Villa Mansi and after a few minutes we will reach also Villa Torrigiani, here we will make another stop where the participants will have free time to follow one of the itineraries suggested to visit the interior or the park of the Villa.
At the end of the free time we will come back to the centre of Lucca.
