Lucca Comics & Games

Between the end of October and the beginning of November one of the most famous and visited events in Tuscany takes place in Lucca: the Lucca Comics & Games.

The convention dedicated to comics, animation, games, video games and fantasy, the most important in Italy, first in Europe and second in the world after the Tokyo Comiket.

Every year attracts many visitors from all over the world and hosts internationally renowned artists. The fair takes place within the historic Renaissance walls of Lucca, famous throughout the world, which become part of a fairytale world.

The environment blends with the world of comics and fantasy and in those days turns into an enchanted dream where you can find medieval warriors, hungry zombies arm in arm with famous cartoon characters and TV series.

Many cosplayers (artists who create clothes and dress up as TV series, comics, anime or video games characters) take part in the event, with dozens of exhibitors and previews.

To visit the inside of the pavilions it is necessary to buy a ticket, but you can walk freely around the city and access to the free stands and the beautiful exhibition held every year in the Palazzo Ducale which hosts works by different artists every year.

An event not to be missed for those who love comics, video games, animation but also for those who want to immerse themselves in a unique atmosphere and get to know Lucca in a completely different way.
