About the tour

Today we are going to explore the historical center of Lucca, as if we were medieval pilgrims on the way to Rome. In fact, Lucca was one of the “must stop” places for pilgrims following the route of the Franks. Why? We are going to discover it together, as well as the cathedral with its very highly decorated façade with a lot of symbolism. A journey into legends between sacred and profane. Yes… this is also Lucca! Let’s get into the uniqueness charm of this town, let’s discover Lucca together!

Meet Fabrizio Ruffa

Fabrizio Ruffa

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! 😀

Lucca is beautiful, even in the rain. My wife and I enjoyed learning about the famous musicians who lived in Lucca, such as Boccherini and Puccini. We visited Lucca and walked around it on the wall, as well as walking through it, but you showed us places that we missed. Thank you!
