Lucca Off The Beaten Path: 45 reviews and 72 photos
It'seasy to wander the streets of Lucca (and so many other Italian towns) without noticing the less obvious evidence of the past. Churches and palazzi and Medieval buildings are all around, but closer observation will show far more details in far more buildings.
You'll see filled-in archways, windows set within earlier windows (sometimes set within even earlier windows), old niches for long-gone statues.......
Keep your eyes open as you walk, and don't forget to look up. Modern shop and house frontages are very often placed upon much older buildings: the higher levels give away the age more clearly.
