San Michele church is only open for some part of the day. The piazza is lively, street musicians and street artists provide entertainment

This chuch is impressive without being over done. The square has some interesting sculptures. It was free to go in, and like the exterior, wasn't over done. It felt more like a place of worship than a gaudy show place. Photography is allowed. I don't...More

Beautiful from the outside. We didn't get to go too much inside just had a peak. It's very clean and at the moment there are lots of sculptures by the Costa Rican artist Jorge Jimenez. Lots of Blub street artist paintings in the side streets...More

It was about 30 degrees during our visit to Lucca, and going into churches is to be recommended in that heat! You will not be disappointed to find yourself in San Michele in Foro as it is quietly amazing with beautiful marble columns and floors....More

Another magnificent building in Lucca. The facade on the front of the building is very unique. It can be found in the old city and definitely worth a visit

Located in the city center, this is a must see. The interior is not as grand as other churches but the exterior is beautiful.

Dissapoined that they charged an admission fee to enter. So we only admired it from the outside. Did duck our head inside by the paying booth and didn't look special enough to pay the few euro's admittance cost.

Worth your time. Currently has modern sculptures that provides a powerful statement that beauty in public spaces is important.

San Michele in Foro is never crowded - offers a wonderful, convenient place in central Lucca to stop and pray - to thank God for blessings.

The rather austere exterior belies the interior beauty of this church. Did a tour with a local specialist guiding a Holland America tour. Guide didn't go into the church, but I go into churches and was blown away by the interior. I did not see...More
