    Lucca Summer Festival 2023 - Piazza dell'AnfiteatroThe concerts of the Lucca Summer Festival 2023 will be held, as usual, in the historical center of the city, in Piazza Napoleone, Piazza San Martino or Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, or outside the historic walls of Lucca, in the former Ballila Field.

    The former Balilla Field is a former sports field located between Viale Giosuè Carducci and the 16th-century walls of the city. The Lucca railway station is located about 500 meters away.

      Absolutely stunning location. Intimate in Piazza Napoleon. Big gig atmosphere outside walls locations. Very high quality performers, very good sound. The whole city is walkable and there is a great vibe in Festival period.
