The countryside around Lucca is ideal for cycling as it is easily reachable from the city center. Indeed, thanks to the cycle path along the Serchio river, you can avoid traffic and reach wonderful places and landscapes in no time!

Following the northern variant of the Via Francigena, you'll reach Ponte a Moriano and Via delle Ville, where you'll find some of the most important historic villas in Tuscany: Villa Oliva, Villa Grabau and Villa Reale.

In particular, you will have the opportunity to visit the lovely park of Villa Reale di Marlia with your bicycle (entrance ticket not included) and stop there for as long as you want for a picnic on the lawn or rest at the villa's cafe.
