The former Balilla Field is located near the historical center of Lucca, between the Viale Giosuè Carducci and the 16th-century walls of the city. Starting with the post-war period, it was used as a sports field, where the local soccer championships were held. For several years, it has been used as a park.
The closest bus stop is Carducci 1, located near the field, on the bus Lines 5, 6, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, LAM BLU, LAM ROSSA and LAM VERDE. The Lucca railway station is located about 500 meters away.
