Via Fillungo, Lucca, Tuscany, 55100

The basics

Though there are a number of important sights along Via Fillungo—the 11th-century Church of San Cristoforo and Palazzo Manzi, to name two—you’ll want to take a turn down Lucca’s most important medieval street primarily to enjoy the friendly local vibe. Most walking or bike tours of the historic center take in Via Fillungo along with the main Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, in addition to architectural highlights like the Duomo di San Martino, the Church di San Michele in Foro, and the historic city walls. Lucca is a popular day trip from Florence or shore excursion from Livorno, and is often combined with a tour of Pisa.
