Located on the Serchio River Lucca is the only city in Italy that has fully preserved its ancient walls with eleven bastions, two of which - Torrione del Bastardo and the San Marti - in its original form. The city is full of excellently-preserved ancient monuments. Tourists from all around the world especially come here to admire the church of St. Martin (VI century), Basilica of St. Ferdinand, where are kept undecayed relics of St. Zita, as well as opera theater, which once competed with La Scala.
