Sweet biking in Lucca

For a more active experience of Lucca, I strongly suggest you try a bike tour, it’s super fun for everybody: for the kids and the adults!

Get on a fancy colorful bike and pedal with me on the walls, then we will zig zag along the medieval streets to reach all the main squares, churches and those less known places as we can move a little bit faster.

After all the pedaling you might get a little bit hungry… It’s gelato time! Our last stop will be at my favourite natural gelateria where you will assist with the ice cream making demonstration and what about granita? An old machine transforms ice into a delicious, crunchy, refreshing and yummy treat… Be brave and savor all the ingredients: nuts, choco beans, and dried fruits are just of few of the delicious ingredients that after sampling you will understand what a real gelato tastes like and why Italians eat it.


  • The bike ride will make you feel very local
  • Everything that can be visited during a classic walking tour: the walls, San Michele, the cathedral, the Amphitheatre and something more…
  • The tasting experience of an authentic gelato place that has some unusual flavours
