What a wonderful place. Lucca is one of the best places I have ever visited.  This fortress-city founded by the Etruscans, enclosed by Renaissance era walls - whose wide tops look out over the town’s many towers, piazzas and gelato shops - is a great holiday destination.  A quick flight from Liverpool to Pisa and my family OTW and I found ourselves in a place that hasn't changed must over the past 500 years.  Lovely architecture - with some bits of Roman wall still visible - great history, good food, wine and the aforementioned gelato...what is there not to love about this place? The people are friendly too.  As a whole, the Lucchesi seem to be a mellow bunch who take time to stop and smell the roses...and colour coordinate their laundry.  Now, that's my type of people.
