A great diversion from the non-stop food-fest that a trip to Lucca can quickly become. We started at the cistern end and walked the length. A very nice walk with several EXCELLENT water sources along the way - locals were filling baskets on one-liter bottles...More

An amazing piece of architecture, just a short walk from Lucca. You can also get a great photo from the top of the tower.

Early one morning we decided to walk along the aquaduct (we had already cycled along some of the arches) from the last arches up past the various cysterns and up to the golden Latin words. We continued to walk up along the construction and wished...More

I would recommend if you are going to head to this place, be sure to drop into the tourist information centre beforehand so they can arm you with a map and give you precise directions to it. We got lost en-route and couldn't find it!!

Short walk from Lucca. Very interesting historically and the fact it runs to Pisa 7.5 hours walk away.

10 minutes walk outside the walls of Lucca. An early 1800 construction that provided the city with fresh waters from the mountins far away. The tower is closed but....a very thrilling and fascinating place with a wonderful view on top after climbing the dangerous stairs...More

We headed out on foot on too hot a fall day and while I was impressed with the aqueduct, I think we would have persevered if it was a cooler day or we were on our bikes. We didn't get far enough to marvel at...More

There is a trail under the old aqueduct that you can walk. If you have a car, you can drive up to and climb up to the aqueduct. It is interesting to see, but not a must see.

A good path for walking or cycling runs along this aqueduct for about 5 miles before turning towards the hills towards Pisa. Good chance to get up close and personal with the countryside and architecture as well as locals at the free water taps along...More

Yes. Ride through the streets of Lucca until you reach the aqueduct, then take the path running along it. There is one large road to cross - which has a bridge. You may need to carry bikes over the bridge. When you reach... More
