In a city of 100 churches, there are two unmissables, plus explore Puccini’s family home, enjoy a Puccini concert, sample Lucca’s essential tastes, and trawl the pedestrianised shopping streets where centuries-old shops interplay with flashy new boutiques with their liberty facades. Walk the fully-preserved ring of walls designed by Leonardo da Vinci and scale the medieval towers for an eagle’s view across this instantly appealing city.

A selection of Mike’s travel articles and touring tips, including Lucca, will soon start appearing on Newstalk ZB’s website in the travel section.
