The city of Lucca is located on the plains that border the Garfagnana, a mountainous area that reaches the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines.
Like few other Italian cities such as Ferrara, Grosseto and Bergamo, Lucca’s Medieval city walls are virtually intact.
Within these walls is a historic city center whose great artistic and architectural importance is particularly evident in its many churches, earning Lucca the nickname of the "city of 100 churches." Currently UNESCO is proposing the inclusion of the historical center of Lucca as a World Heritage Site.
The province of Lucca also includes the beautiful Riviera della Versilia, with its string of seaside resorts and lively nightlife. Among the most famous of these is Viareggio, best known for its famous carnival with its paper maché floats parading through the town.

From Molino del Pero Golf Club, Lucca is about an hour and a half away. Drive. Get on the A1 highway at Rioveggio to the Florence “Firenze Nord” exit, then take the A11 “Firenze-Mare.”
