Once one of Italy’s wealthy fiefdoms, Lucca retains all the beauty of art and architecture that you’d expect from northern Italy and Tuscany. Smaller than Florence, it gained its freedom from Rome in the 12th century and except for one small glitch when Pisa took control, it was self-governing for 500 years until Napoleon arrived and gave the city to his sister.
