About the tour

Architecture speaks! Yes, 2000 years of history within Renaissance city walls. Could you believe that until forty years ago we had car traffic on top of the fifteen hundred walls? Yes, a unique case in the world! This is Lucca! Today I will show you the actual use of the walls, then we are going to discover the historical center: one of the best-preserved in Italy. The ambiance of the town is a balance of Medieval towers, Romanesque churches and elegant sixteen hundred villas: a unique cocktail! I would like to show you this gem: from the ancient roman amphitheater to the eighteen hundred palace where Napoleon’ sister lived. Let’s jump into this atmosphere, let’s discover Lucca together!


Meet your local guide

Fabri

Fabri is Italian, he is a licensed local guide and he lives in Tuscany. He studied at the University of Turin in Italy and at Wolverhampton University in UK. He has always had the passion for art history and for telling stories… finally in a magic day of 13 years ago he discovered that there was a job where these two ingredients are fundamentals: the tourist guide! Well, he found a job to love! He likes to meet people and to share his time and experiences: “it’s a great reciprocal way to learn and to grow” he says. Guess his favorite hobbies? Traveling, traveling, traveling! 😀

Fabri has been guiding since Jan 2008


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Lucca with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 50 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Lucca. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

This was an excellent tour. It just flowed so well. Lots of information but not too much. Fabri's English is excellent too. Areally enjoyable trip. I am booked already for Part 2.

This (and my first) virtual trip was just how I hoped such a trip to be: well-prepared and structured, informative, entertaining, charming and with the right "human touch". Splendid, Fabri, I will be on the lookout for more of your tours in the future! :-) Thank you so much for your efforts!

Ciao Fabri! I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Lucca with you on Saturday. I have visited Lucca many times both as a tourist and one of my favourite places to stay in Italy and also as a Tour Manager I have brought groups from the UK. I've booked in for the next trip on Saturday and look forward to seeing you then. Rosie
