Animals, flowers, tales of saints, and a labyrinth will greet you before entering the Cathedral where the ancient wooden crucifix called the 'Volto Santo' (Holy Face) is contained. Through the inquisitive eyes of your child, you will discover all the intriguing legends and miracles associated with these symbols.

    Head for the historic mint where, before your very eyes, replicas of the ancient coins of Lucca will be produced and each child will receive one as a Medieval souvenir. The historic Mint is one of the oldest in Italy (operating since 650 a.C.)

    Duration: 30 minutes
