Piazza dell' Anfiteatro in Lucca (Tuscany, Italy).

"Passages beneath the houses lead into this unusual enclosed oval space, which occupies the site of an amphitheatre built by the Romans in the 2C, The amphitheatre fell into ruin during the Barbarian invasions and provided a large part of the building materials used during the Middle Ages to reconstruct the town's churches, particularly the marble used for the façades. It was not until 1830 that this space was laid out with the medieval quarter." (Michelin Green Guide Tuscany, 2010).

Torre Guinigi in Lucca is famous for its helm oak grove on top.

"The trap-door opened, and we emerged on a grassy platform. The platform was shaded by a cluster of ancient bay-trees that had grown and flourished spite of the wind and the storms of centuries, looking fresh and green in their old age as our aged companion, who was glad to sink on a seat to rest. The view was glorious. At our feet lay the fair city and all its elegant buildings, winding streets, numerous monasteries, with their low towers pierced by open galleries; ancient churches, divided from the streets by gardens and trees; open piazzas breaking the uniformity of the lines of streets, stretching away towards the several gates, all belted round by the strong walls, fringed with trees, and encircled by a broad extent of green esplanade, enclosing the beautiful city like a cestus of beauty. On one side appeared the Duomo, with its long lines of extensive roofs and lofty campanile, just under the fortifications; farther on was the spacious ducal palace, rising out of its pretty planted piazza, and other notable churches and buildings all mapped out before us. Beyond the walls the waters of the river Serchio wound in silvery lines through the smiling plains, teeming with cultivation. Mountains entirely hemmed in the level ground, of every shape, of every shade, from the sternest precipices of dark rocky crags to the green and fertile mountain, the little Borgos nestling amid the chesnut woods, and splendid villas peeping forth from amid the deep groves of bay and ilex." (Florentia: The Baths of Lucca, "The New Monthly Magazine", Vol. 110, London 1857).
