It's a small church when compared to others but I really enjoyed climbing the bell tower and exploring the ruins underneath the church. Well worth visiting
We bought a combo ticket, which also includes the San Martina Cathedral & tower nearby. The main attraction for me was the excavation underneath the church floor which you can climb down and walk through. There is an audio tour available--we didn't use it.
The 12th century church itself is small but worth a quick visit. It is the excavated ruins under the floor of the entire church that is the draw for anyone who likes archaelological remains. The ruins of the church of St. Reparata, which was built in the 4th century, was the 1st cathedral in Lucca until the 8th century. There... 更多
This is where the Puccini Festival runs every day, just across the street from the Dom. The inside is practically without colour and it is quite dark inside even on a sunny day so it's hardly worth a special visit - look in over when you come to the Festival in the evening (every evening of the year!)
The Puccini festival is held in this church, but even if you are not into Puccini, this is a magnificent place to visit. The excavations under the church reveal four phases in it history with interpretations in Italian, English and French. Audio guides are available.
Worth the visit. Get entry with one ticket to this church, the cathedral and the museum. This church was my favorite of the 3. Climb the bell tower for great views of Lucca. The stairs are easy to climb and it's not nearly as tall as the tower in Florence. The best part is the excavations under the church. They... 更多
Going up in the tower you can look out over the city. Then the church is built over Roman and early church ruins which is very interesting. It is worth checking out if you are in Lucca
Really enjoyed this church, really interesting to see its history revealed under the floor. Don't miss the trip up the tower to see the context of the church
Like so many churches in Italy, this one has been built on an earlier church, which was built on Roman buildings. The excavations are easy to negotiate, so age is no barrier to visiting; and there are well marked items in situ from 1st Century AD. (Photograph the information and the item - it helps a lot when you get... 更多
This is one of three places you can visit on the combined ticket to the cathedral. In the crypt you can see all the foundations from the Roman period onwards. You can also climb up the tower and get a view out over the rooftops of Lucca but the last flight is a steep ladder and not recommended for children... 更多
