DIY Guide to Lucca


Live and experience Lucca to the fullest without whittling away your time and enthusiasm randomly planning where to stay, ride, and eat.

Beginner or advanced, here's how to steer clear of busy roads and experience Lucca's diversity without visiting the same areas twice.


If you’re coming alone, with family or a few friends, venture out with a complete cycling route library uploaded on your GPS device. From short, casual rides to epic mountain passes, see the absolute best the region has to offer — roads that separate good rides from near perfection.

Consider this DIY Guide as a North Star. You’ll find the ideal areas to stay with wow, bike-friendly accommodations. Read -> select -> book because vacations are meant to feel easy.

Hours, no days on the Google won’t reveal what a nerdy gal discovers living here. Allow me to take the wind so you can coast.

Countless hours saved, less traffic and zero guesswork:


This guide made our trip stress free. We planned our bike rentals, lodging, food, and 10 days of riding using only this guide . . . saved us countless hours of research. The riding in Lucca is world class, but it's not easy to navigate and figure out on your own. The guide and GPS routes made it a breeze and we were confident we were hitting the best routes every day. Well worth it.

For my second trip to Lucca, I decided to go for the guide to avoid some of the busier roads I took last time. Lucca is a paradise, and its cycling is, well, the best— the climb to Fiano is my favorite. The guide sets you up with everything you need to make your trip memorable. In my one week stay, I lived, ate, and rode like a Lucchese. Tranquility achieved.

I come from San Cassiano di Controne (close to Bagni di Lucca) and live in London. I visit 15 days each year. There's a dense network of roads surrounding Lucca (and Italy in general) that's impossible to know in its entirety without living in the area. Alison's guide takes out all the guesswork and has shown me roads/routes I never knew existed. The convenience and stress reduction this guide offers is a no-brainer whether you ride alone (like me) or with your friends.
