I have posed this question on another thread and also done a google search, but I would like to hear from CC'ers if they have experienced a wine tour within the walls of Lucca or just outside? Also with Lucca being a walking town, is there any must sees and restaurant recommendations that are not miles away from the entrance of the walls?

We will be visiting Lucca this July. I have done alot of research on a couple of boards. These restaurants come highly recommended:

I have other posts from cc and trip advisor on Lucca in email form that I could forward to you if you send me your email address I will forward them to you.

Here is a site for a wine tour that will pick you up at your hotel:

This is as far as I have gotten with my winery research.

Here is a good walking map of Lucca:

We are not staying in Lucca but rather on a one day port call from Florence. Our plan is to go to Pisa for the photo op in the morning and then travel to Lucca and visit a winery for the remaining part of the day.

I can't help with the winery, but I have eaten at both of these restaurants, and the food was delicious!

You're welcome! :)

We're planning on doing a similar day when we're in Livorno, so I've started trying to dig up some resources.

I know that within the walls of Lucca there are quaint shops and lovely restaurants. I have done some research myself, but I haven't been able to pinpoint the must sees. We are planning on having an authentic lunch and with the help of these boards I have narrowed down our choices to one or two possibilities. Have you decided on a walking route, or stops that you plan to see? That is where I am running into a bit of a road block...any help would be wonderful.....thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

The city's tourism web site may help you with this: http://www.comune.lucca.it/flex/cm/pages/ServeBLOB.php/L/EN/IDPagina/6552

Interesting things to do and see in Lucca:

Walk/bicycle around the walls (much more fun than it sounds! :))
See the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro - was once a Roman amphitheatre - have a coffee or a gelato at one of the cafes.
Visit the Duomo di San Martino (St Martin's Cathedral)
Climb the Torre Guinigi - lovely views, and there are oak trees growing out of the top of the tower.
