Climbing the stairs to the top of Torre della Ore was one of our top things to do in Lucca for kids

Lucca, Italy is known for its massive, well-preserved city walls which surround a historic Old Town, lined with charming cobblestone streets. Although it can be visited in a day, if you are visiting Lucca with kids, we recommend spending a night or two to give you one full day in Lucca.
