It allows you to reach Villa Bottini, and after passing through the door of San Gervasio along the Via dei fossi, it reaches pizza santa Maria Bianca, crosses Piazza Beranrdini and then the Cathedral.
    In the central area the route continues from Piazza Antelminelli to Piazza s. Giovanni where you can visit the archaeological excavations.
    In the South Zone from the railway station the route enters the city from the Porta San Pietro and reaches Piazza S. Giovanni.
    From the northern area the entrance is from Porta Santa Maria and "enters" into the heart of Lucca with the route called "free wheel" that reaches the most important and attractive monuments of the city: Church of San Frediano, Piazza Anfiteatro, Church of San Michele, Giacomo Puccini Museum, Church of San Paolino, Mint Museum, Comics Museum, Cathedral of San Martino, Cathedral Museum.


Le Mura per tutti is a project that allows the visit of about half of the ring of the Walls in autonomy for the blind with the help of a special "smart dog controller" interfaced for Android devices.

At the Botanical Garden of Lucca are available paths ... for all the senses: touch, smell, listen to know.
With the help of special panels and plates you can get to know the centuries-old trees of the Garden and the stories of the daily aromatics.
A special route also allows people with motor difficulties to rely on a stable background to move independently.

All the routes have been structured in such a way as to guarantee accessibility to the history and culture of the city through the construction of ramps and the insertion of loges, with a view to eliminating architectural barriers and with the involvement of the Associations dealing with disabled citizens.
