Lucca and the Gothic Line

Morning – Lucca:

The walking/bike guided tour has been conceived to discover the city of Lucca with some stop-overs in crucial points of the city during the Second World War. Lunch in Lucca.


Departure for Borgo a Mozzano (20 km north of Lucca) to visit the fortifications of the Gothic Line in Borgo a Mozzano and Anchiano. Some fortifications are quite unique with varying characteristics and are all in good condition since the Gothic Line is almost totally intact in this area. The antitank wall that demarcated the front, the galleries, bunkers, and gun emplacements, are all perfectly conserved and easily accessible, and are excavated from the rock.
