An easy way to discover the way of water from the old town to fresh springs, where the precious oligomineral water of Lucca flows. Cycling from the city center and admiring the town from the top of the walls, we'll continue along the majestic historic aqueduct of Lorenzo Nottolini until we reach the small valley of Guamo, a sort of kingdom of the waters that locals call "The golden words".
An enchanting leafy itinerary that is part of the identity of this territory. When even a glass of water can turn into a fact of history and culture!
Other things to note
It is easy to rent the bike just at the meeting point for a cost of € 12 for the three hours of the experience. If you don't find an available date on schedule, please, contact us!

I'm a certificated hiking guide since 2012. I'm true nature-lover and delight in any kind of outdoor activity. My fellow-tour guide (and my husband) is Alessandro. He's a Mountain bike guide and he is a lover of photograpy, art and MTB, obviously ! We were born in Lucca and we've always lived here. We are the founder of Amazing Lucca (www.amazing-lucca.com) which offers visitors to Tuscany fully guided experiences. We relish being in nature and sharing our passions with other to make each day a moment filled with fascinating discoveries.
We both could be your guide or one by one.

We'll bike along the 3.2 km (2mi) of the covered stone conduits of the waterway. Is a monumental work, still well preserved, of the first half of the nineteenth century! We'll stop to have a cappuccino together and we'll get to know each other better. Then we will reach the area of the fresh springs, where the water is collected and conveyed. A green place in nature where locals go, to find rest and silence during weekend and holidays !

Really good way to get out the city and see some of the other things that Lucca has to offer. Federica was a great guide - very friendly and informative.

A fantastic personable guide promoting an invaluable experience and a unique insight into the history and natural environment of Lucca. I left feeling energised and had a new enthusiasm for Italian culture!

If you're sick of visiting churches and museums, this is the tour for you: you'll get history notes about the city (which is a wonderful gem), riding on the city walls, and then you'll go through the waterway (roman style but 1800's) in the countryside. There you have some stops with Alessandro with some stories and historical notes about what you'll see around. Alessandro (Federica's husband) is very friendly and disposable: ride is quite easy, but for any problem Alessandro is willing to help. Remember if you don't have a bike you have to rent one (at the meeting point) for 12 EUR.

Sehr interessante Tour, super Guide der uns mit viel Wissen versorgt hat, sich um uns gekümmert und wenn nötig unterstützt hat, wir haben uns sehr nett unterhalten und etwas über die Geschichte erfahren. An einigen Stellen wäre ein Mountainbike vielleicht noch praktischer gewesen, aber wir haben uns zu jeder Zeit wohl gefühlt. Klare Empfehlung!

Malcolm and I had such a lovely time on the Architect's Waters tour! We were lucky to have Alessandro to ourselves. He was lovely and attentive and was happy to personalise the timing or locations as we wished. Picking up/dropping bikes could have been tedious but was simple and quick and totally fine. It was a hot day but his passion for his hometown Lucca and it's green and architectural secrets were infectuous and his energy never flagged. He took time to learn about our interests and also told him about himself and his family. The bike ride is very easy - if you are not very tall you may need help carrying your bike over one short bit, but Alessandro was there to help at all times. As part of the tour we took a pit stop for coffee and delicious pastries where Alessandro schooled us on the sweet side of Italian coffee culture! We were in town for a lot of meetings, so this was our only chance to get to learn a little about Lucca. As a result of the tour, we lingered a little and found it beautiful, friendly and charming. Situations allowing, we now plan to return later this year. We did not get to meet Federica, but she was friendly and super organised in preparing the day. Thanks so much guys, we had a great time! x
