Lucca is famous for its intact Renaissance-era city walls, a pedestrian promenade which encircled the old town in the natural amphitheatre of the hills beyond.
The medieval city has maintained the characteristics of the small capital: the streets and piazzas of the historical center, “the Oval Square”, the churches, the towers and buildings, provide an ideal setting for a campus within which experiences can be shared.  
In spite of being a small city (85.000 inhabitants), Lucca hosts international festivals and cultural events, for example, the Lucca Summer Music Festival and the annual Lucca Comics and Games, Italy’s largest festival for comics.


In general the climate in Lucca is mild with a gentle fresh wind. There are some differences between the coast and the valleys where the summers are hotter than in the hilly areas and where the climate is very continental and rainfalls are more frequent. Usually the summers in Lucca are hot and dry.
September is still dry and sunny, with occasional rainy days, temperatures ranges normally around 20°C, up to 26°C.


In Lucca there are plenty of quality shops, in particular along the commercial street of Via Fillungo.
