Toro Vista is located on the first floor of a 14th century palazzo few meters from Lucca's central piazza.
The owner of this truly remarkable space, a Broadway producer, has spared no cost in creating a typically Tuscan retreat within the walls of Lucca. The combination kitchen/dining/living room boasts plenty of room and modern conveniences, from the full-equipped kitchen (gas stove, electric oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer), to the oak dining table that converts to a games table, to the leather sofa bed and chair and finally to the television with multi-region DVD/CD player.
The second bedroom features twin beds that can combine into a matrimonial bed on request. The second toilet has a washbasin, toilet and bidet. The main bathroom is accessible from the living area without disturbing the occupants of the bedrooms - so your occasional guests can use the sofa bed and bath with ease. The front windows look out over Via del Toro. The rear windows look out over a lovely courtyard. Even though you will simply wish to disappear into a quiet Tuscan life, the apartment is equipped with high-speed, wireless internet. A local cell/mobile phone is also provided. This 14th century building is located beautifully inside the historic walls of Lucca, on a quiet street, but just one block away from one of the main shopping and restaurant streets of this lovely town.
Between the entrance hall and the twin bedroom, separated by doors on each side, there's a large corridor / wardrobe area with mirrored closets, that on request become a single bedroom (as you can see in the photos, without and with the single bed) or a long triple bedroom for your children together with the twin beds.
Actually, considering the leather sofa bed in the leaving room, the apartment could sleep up to 7 persons.

We had a wonderful stay in Toro Vista. The apartment was very comfortable and extremely well furnished. Lucca is such a beautiful town, we enjoyed every minute of our stay there, hence our extension of the trip by an extra 3 nights. We will certainly recommend it to our friends and relatives and plan to stay there again on our next visit.

Lucca is slightly lost in time. It is a perfectly preserved jewel of times gone by, yet it has all the modern conveniences. It boasts an opera company (Lucca is the birthplace of Puccini), a theatre, a soccer team, and many museums. Beyond all that Lucca has to offer, it is the perfect base to explore Tuscany and the Italian Riviera.
