Lucca is a city of approximately 85,000 inhabitants in Tuscany, Italy.
It is renowned for its Renaissance-era walls, houses, towers, churches, Renaissance palaces and 19th-century little piazzas.
Today Lucca is an important tourist and commercial centre, known for its art and traditional culture, as well as for its paper, chemical, metal, textile and agricultural (olive and wine) industries.
Lucca is a member of the League of Historical and Accessible Cities (LHAC), a project established by the European Foundation Centre.
The main aim of the League of Historical and Accessible Cities is to improve the accessibility of historical towns promoting, at the same time, sustainable tourism development and the protection of cultural heritage.
