Lucca is a less known destination a little north from Florence. This ancient city bound inside the well preserved city wall(designed by Leonardo Da Vinci) got many historical architecture to offer. On top of these broad defensive walls is a ring park, a relaxing place for leisure. Within the twisting alleys inside the old city, the main sight definitely is the Roman amphitheater, the remains of the amphitheater are gone, bit it still shows the outline and shape of an ancient arena. Among many of the church the Duomo di San Martino and the majestic church of San Michele got impressive facade, some interesting sculptures and carvings like showing the life pattern for each month, and a mystery labyrinth. Another interesting sight is the Torre Guinigi tower with tree grew atop it. Lucca is a very relaxing place to spend a day trip, a welcoming change from the bustling and nosy Florence.
