    The bike tour was one of the best tours we took while in Italy. The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable of Lucca and its history. She gave us recommendations for places to eat and visit and offered to tailor the tour to our liking. For example, she offered to cover less of the history if we preferred (we told her not to change what she was doing as it was all very interesting and relevant). The pace was just perfect. Not too strenuous but covered a lot of ground, including all areas within the walled city and riding for several stretches on the wall. Most of the ride was on level ground and for the few inclines you could get off the bike and walk it up. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lucca!
