This originally held 39 photos in a single post, and @MichelvA commented it took a very long time to upload the images, so I have decided to cut it in two for faster loading.
Comments from various people below relate to the whole original post, but I cannot insert the second half straight after the first one.
You can see part 2 of my photos after @MichelvA's photos that he has added to this Lucca thread, and hopefully will add more, as will others.

Part 2 of my original post of 39 images that I have cut in two so as to enable faster uploading of the images (see @MichelvA's comment above).
The numbering continues on from Part 1.

Thanks for various comments.
@MichelvA: as you can see, in response to your comment that my original post of 39 images took such a long time to upload, I have decided to cut it in two. Part 1 leads off this thread, and part 2 is immediately above, interspersed with feedback comments from yourself and @Jetsplace, and your contribution of your own beautiful images of this remarkable walled city. Deservedly famous for its intact city walls that have become a beautiful walking track, the original moats that have been turned into a green park around the old city, well preserved churches, old buildings and towers, the magnificent Piazza Anfiteatro built on the footprint of the original Roman Amphitheatre, the birthplace and home of Puccini, and altogether a city of great beauty, and superb cuisine.
Hope to see more of your image from here, as well as others from any Dyxummers who have visited.

I am sure I have clicked to watch this topic (as well as the other Italian cities by Jozioau), lucky I checked. Well, it's sort of a compliment for a wonderful series I'm contemplating. TFS and also to all those who are and will add shots.
