What you'll do

Climb a summit through the garrigue, the vegetation that characterizes these mountains that separate Lucca from Pisa. In the morning light sensations are enhanced, like the energies and emotions that can be conveyed by the colors of the flowers and the scent of aromatic herbs. A landscape that opens up more and more as you go up, until you can see the coasts of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the valley and the Alps in the distance. Once you reach the top have a break and enjoy this view with a hot coffee and a pastry.
Other things to note.
Guests should be prepared to walk 3 hours. Along the path there are some steep section and the path is rocky and slippery.

I'm a certificated hiking guide since 2012. I'm true nature-lover and delight in any kind of outdoor activity. My fellow-tour guide is Alessandro. He's a Mountain bike guide and he is a lover of photograpy, art and MTB obviously ! We were born in Lucca, we've always lived in Lucca and we love our territory. We are the founder of Amazing Lucca (www.amazing-lucca.com) which offers visitors to Tuscany fully guided experiences. We relish being in nature and sharing our passions with other to make each day a moment filled with fascinating discoveries.
We both could be your guide or one by one.

Where you'll be

The area where the hike takes is just few minutes away from the city center of Lucca. It is a stunning place in nature so there will be many chances to stop and snap some photos. We will be surrounded by incredible views overlooking the town of Lucca one side and Pisa on the other, with the leaning tower in the distance (.. away from the crowd) and the sea as a background!

Rated 4.88 out of 5 from 8 reviews.

This was a really enjoyable experience. I was the only person on the hike that day but Federica made me feel very welcome. She was very friendly and very easy to talk to and after a bit it felt just like walking with a friend. She also very diplomatically suggested that, as there was no-one else on the walk, we could do a slightly different walk if I wanted. The alternative walk was not quite as steep or demanding as the walk originally proposed. (I’m reasonably fit but I am in my 60’s and I think this suggestion showed consideration and good judgement on Federica’s part.) She did not put any pressure on me and left the choice to me. I decided to go with the slightly less demanding option, which was still fairly strenuous but manageable. The terrain was varied and interesting - and a bit challenging in places. We got some wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. It was great to be able to see Pisa and the surrounding villages all laid out before me. Federica was also very knowledgable about the plants and trees we saw on our walk. I could never have done this without a guide and Federica clearly loves this countryside and enjoyed sharing it with me. She also helped me practice my Italian.......and gave me some very good tips about where to get the best pizza and pastries in Lucca! I would really recommend this experience. Federica is an excellent guide and looked after me very well.

The morning hike outside Lucca with Federica was a memorable experience for me and one I'd highly recommend for others. The hike is a great mix of exercise, culture, and conversation with a local. Beyond being a strong guide - she was both kind and knowledgable. The scenery was amazing and Federica's insight on the Tuscan region, Italian history, and the environment made the trek that much better. The hike was a little more challenging than I expected (vertical climb), but was still very doable (I planned after I came to Italy so didn't have best shoes for the climb). Federica always made sure it was a good experience for me and I really appreciated that. Grazie Federica.

A true mind, body, and soul experience. Our guide Was very knowledgeable of our surroundings and educated us on the land and vegetation around us when we climbed. The views were spectacular on the way up and a true treasure when we reached the top. Absolutely breathtaking!! The feeling of accomplishment when at the peak along with the heavenly views made for an emotional experience. A must do when visiting Lucca or the surrounding areas. Life changing!

We had a wonderful time and thoroughly recommend this experience. We were met in Lucca then taken to the forest where we hiked up to a peak where there is a 360degree view which is spectacular. Federica made us delicious fresh coffee (and had also bought snacks) at the top. If you like a hike this is a perfect way to see the area with a very knowledgeable guide who told us many interesting things about the area, flora and history.

Federica was a such a delightful guide! It was evident that she loved Lucca and the surroundings, and made us feel very comfortable. She even helped me with my Italian as we "walked and talked". We will return to Lovely Lucca!
