If you (like me) find large museums rather dulling to the senses after the first half hour or so, you'll appreciate this beautifully organized small museum that illumines so many aspects of the history of Lucca. The building itself is a fascinating example of modernism,...More

So much to see and admire. The museum is particularly well displayed. The range and quality of art works make for a rewarding visit.

If you visit the Duomo, then do cross over and see all the wonderful things in this museum. The gold ornaments for the Holy Cross were stunning.

The cathedral is a must visit. Buy the combo ticket that gives you access to the Cathedral, the Tower and the Archeological dig under the Bapistry (and its tower). Spectacular city views from the Cathedral Tower, but the real treasures are inside the Cathedral.
