Lovely little piazza flanked by a sweet church with an amazing fresco painted on its facade. There is a peacefulness in this square and the light is exquisite.

The Piazza Anfiteatro in Lucca was once the sight of an old Roman Ampitheatre. This interesting piazza is made up of shops, restaurants, and cafes in historic buildings constructed during the middle ages.

The amphitheater sits in the heart of the walled city of Lucca in Tuscany. It's home to many wonderful shops and cafes and can be access through various tunnel-life passages. Stand in the center and go for the panoramic shot. I did!

Probably the most famous spot in Lucca. It is a really cute piazza shaped in an oval with restaurants and shops.

The ruins of an ancient Roman amphitheatre are incorporated into the current building which includes shops and apartments.

Builded on the ancient roman amphitheatre, its oval shape is unique and characteristic.

Questa è una delle piazze più particolari di Lucca, costruita su un vecchio anfiteatro romano mantenendo l'originale forma ellittica. Negozietti e ristoranti circondano la piazza, regalando un'atmosfera da villaggio anche se un po' turistica. Per apprezzare al meglio la forma ellittica della piazza è necessario un giro in elicottero, ma si può scorgere anche dalla Torre Guinigi.
