Beware of saying to them that sometimes different cities follow one another on the same site and under the same name, born and dying without knowing one another, without communication among themselves. At time even the names of the inhabitants remain the same, and their voices’ accent, and also the features of the faces; but the gods who live beneath names and above places have gone off without a word and outsiders have settled in their place.
Italo Calvino (Invisible Cities)


The web-site will guide you through the discovery of ancient Roman Lucca.

The modern city holds hidden traces of its ancient past, which can be discovered in its buildings, plaza, courtyards and small streets. Lucca is a wonderful example of a stratified urban center where ancient manufacturing companies have continued to survive in successive centuries only to find themselves part of a diverse “city”: their conservation has been possible thanks to this type of urban development transformation.
It is not enough to just visit Lucca in order to know this ancient city: the paths and informative walking routes you will find in this web-site propose alternative itineraries for discovering the hidden ancient Roman Lucca that lies between the cracks within its walls.
