This iconic elliptical plaza started life as a 1st-century Roman amphitheatre. Over the years, gladiatorial battles gave way to a prison, shops and even vegetable patches, before the structure was finally restored in the 1830s. Today PIazza Anfiteatro is the heart and soul of the city, lined with bustling cafés where Lucca locals watch the world go by.
