Exhibitions and Fairs in Lucca

Lucca is not only an important fairground, historical and cultural center, but also the heart of one of the most productive provinces of Tuscany. Over the years, many industrial sectors including paper, yachting, mechanical and chemical-pharmaceutical, have flourished throughout the provincial area, in addition to important tourist activities, and the production of oil and wine.

For this reason, the area around Lucca Fair - Lucca Fiere e Congressi is undergoing profound changes, as the fairgrounds are in charge of representing such fast-growing sectors.

How to get to Lucca

Lucca is on the A11 motorway Firenze-Mare. The city is little more than 70 Km from Florence and 30 from Viareggio, a famous sea resort. One of the main arteries that cross the city is the State Road 12 (SS dell'Abetone e del Brennero) which goes from Pisa to Austria intersecting Modena, Verona, Trento and Bolzano. The train station of Lucca, in the area south of downtown, along Corso Conte di Cavour, services the Florence-Viareggio railway line. The city also has an airport, the Lucca-Tassignano, located in the municipality of Capannori, open to tourist and commercial traffic. The Fiera di Lucca is reachable via the motorway exit Lucca-Est.

Where to sleep in Lucca

The circle of beautiful Renaissance walls has helped Lucca to maintain its historical appearance over the centuries. In the historical centre, there are dozens of accommodation options, ranging from ultra-luxury hotels to B&Bs: those who are searching for a hotel in a convenient position to reach the Trade Fair, should book one of those hotels near the train station, from where buses depart towards the exhibition center.
