For Tuscany Lucca is not a typical city. Most of the villages are on top of a hill, but Lucca is completely flat. Surrounded by a city wall of 4km, big parts of the historical city are still alive. The big square (P. del Anfiteatro) here in the center was at Roman times a large amphitheatre. Nobody knows how many people have lost their lifes, fighting against wild beasts or well trained gladiators
