The apartment is located in the heart of Lucca’s historic city center ,in a quiet area,and has a view of the Giunigi tower which dates back to the Medieval period and is one of the most well-known towers in town.
Having been completely remodeled in 2012, the romantic apartment is equipped with the most modern conveniences. The décor is modern with the occasional antique here and there which perfectly blends in and enhances the overall design.
Restoration was done in such a way as to preserve the elegance and charm of the original architecture. The original high oak-beamed ceiling in the living room lends space and grandeur to the apartment. The bedroom is completely frescoed with 18th century paintings and there are beautiful views of the Guinigi tower from all of the large windows which also guarantee a bright interior. The central location means all the main shopping streets (via Fillungo, via Santa Croce, via Nuova) are just a few steps away, as are the numerous restaurants and coffee shops.
These features make the apartment ideal for couples wanting to live an experience steeped in history and tradition in old and modern-day Lucca.
Entry to the apartment is on the 2nd floor. As this is a historic building, an elevator could not be installed. Therefore, a stay here would not be ideal for anyone with reduced mobility.
Stefano and Paola, after leaving their managerial careers with large multinational companies, decided to turn their hobby into a profession. They first opened a small, charming hotel in Umbria,close to Todi (la Palazzetta del Vescovo then, Making the most of their experience, they decorated the apartment with the same care and attention to detail one normally dedicates to one’s own home and with the same level of comfort one would find in a luxury hotel.
Paola and Stefano Zocchi purchased this apartment in 2012
Almost by chance, Paola and Stefano felt in love with Lucca and the boutique apartment in Palazzo Orsucci.

My husband and I have just returned from an 8-day stay at this amazing apartment inside the walls of beautiful Lucca. Everything you see and read in the description of this apartment is exactly as it appears - it is truly stunning! Very spacious, facilities/furnishings are luxurious and comfortable with every need catered for - especially loved the fresco restoration of the property (bedroom ceiling is amazing!), the modern kitchen and bathroom facilities...and the coffee machine - makes great italian coffee!
Larisa our host, was both professional and very welcoming/helpful at arrival and departure, explaining the facilities of the flat, advice on the area, etc - many thanks Larisa! The apartment was immaculately clean on arrival and a mini clean was included on day 4 with a change of towels/bedding, thank you Patrizia!
The position of the apartment made it very easy for us to sample all the delights that Lucca offers, all within walking distance (you don't need a car unless touring further afield outside the walls) - though this has to be our first holiday that we've came home a little fitter than we arrived despite all the great restaurants and food consumed! Although it is located within the walls, it's just a few streets away from the main bustle of the town centre which means the apartment is lovely and quiet and being two floors up you do have fabulous views, especially of the Giunigi Tower as stated .... and the pigeons for company! Lucca is also a good base for exploring further .... we also visited Cinque Terre on a very sunny March day....beautiful!
Sorry, we can't honestly say anything we disliked about this apartment/holiday, except we wish it had two bedrooms so we could share future stays with other family members, but that is personal to us. For us this time though, as a couple, it was perfect in every way - a real luxurious and romantic stay in beautiful Lucca.
Paola and Stefano, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful flat. We hope to come to Lucca again soon to do more family research and explore the area outwith Lucca and would love to come back to stay in Palazzo Orsucci again....be sure it will be highly recommended to our family and friends.
