|Lucca, Bell Tower of the Cathedral|
The monumental historic centre of the city has remained intact and still reflects its original layout and urban plan. It houses numerous medieval churches of great architectural importance (Lucca has been called the 'city with 100 churches' for the vast number of churches in the city centre), towers and bell towers, and monumental palazzos.
The city also features Piazza dell' Anfiteatro, built by Lorenzo Nottolini atop the ruins of an older Roman theatre, and the main medieval thoroughfare, Via Fillungo.
