Getting around Lucca

You are here

Tourists coming to Lucca can easily move around thanks to the numerous public transport services available that make possible connections both within the old town and with the outskirts.

The historic city centre is small and is closed to traffic, so you can visit it on foot or by bicycle. For those coming by car, there are numerous car parks both outside the walls and along the wall path, connected to the historical centre by buses and shuttles.

Shuttles’ timetables and routes

The urban transport service in the Municipality of Lucca is managed by VaiBus Lucca - CCT Nord group.
