Easter and Easter Monday in the Piana di Lucca


Spring is in the air with milder temperatures in this early April which precedes the Easter celebrations. Longer days and good weather spread good vibes and the desire to go out and make short trips or excursions out of town, to discover cities and places never visited before or some inside tips that we would like to know better.


Here are some ideas to put on your agenda for your Easter holidays in the Piana di Lucca.



From the San Regolo bulwark, to the La Libertà bulwark, along the curtain walls to the Lucca Botanical Garden.

VerdeMura is the first of the great gardening market exhibitions with over 170 Italian and foreign exhibitors: nurseries of plants and horticultural species, shrubs, bulbs, tools and furnishings for the garden and vegetable garden and excellent artisan products and a rich program.

Walks with fireflies

June, poppies and fireflies. When they come to light up the nights, it's dark that summer has arrived, you can be outside in the evening with friends and family and they are one of the most beautiful natural spectacles of the summer period.
We see them twirling in the night sky in the fields or woods, but also near the city, if conditions permit you can see those little yellow-green lights flashing on and off in a courtship dance.

We invite you to take a walk after dark, in search of summer.


The terraces of the Walls



In the streets and squares of small villages, in the theatres, churches and parish churches in the countryside and on the hills, for Christmas there are great celebrations in the Piana di Lucca.
Markets, concerts, theatrical performances, nativity scenes, workshops for children, Santa Claus and the Epiphany. Many events under the sign of tradition, in the magical atmosphere of the end of the year celebrations.

Also Villa Reale in Marlia, a few kilometers from the historic center of Lucca, celebrates Magical Christmas.



A Christmas tree or a crib? You don't always have to choose.

The historic center of Lucca is the location for displays and installations for everyone and we invite you to a walk through innovation and tradition in Lucca's Magical Christmas.
