The Piazza dell’Anfiteatro is the beating heart of Lucca.

Surrounded by circular-shaped buildings, it has an elliptical shape reminiscent of the Roman amphitheater dating back to the second century BC. The base of the amphitheater are now three meters below and in its time it could host over ten thousand spectators. The square was created in 1830 by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini and houses a market, as well as typical shops and restaurants.
