Toro Vista is a beautiful apartment located in the heart of Lucca.The apartment is newly renovated, clean and well-furnished. It was tempting to spend more time in the apartment because it's so comfortable. If you don't want to cook and clean, there are many wonderful restaurants nearby. It's a short walk from everything we needed yet off the beaten path a couple of blocks. The beauty of the experience is the nice, quiet streets and the serenity of knowing you are in a safe place. We slept with the windows open! The apartment has maps and books about the area as references. We could have and should have spent more time discovering Lucca but the convenient location lent us the opportunity to see many sites outside the Lucca area. Just a few blocks from the bus station and 10-minute walk to the train station, we ventured to Florence, Pisa and Cinque Terra for day trips. The owner is so helpful and a delight to work with, not to mention he is extremely well-versed on all that Italy has to offer. The local manager is extremely polite as well. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.
