THE HOUSE IS IDEAL FOR FAMILIES AND GROUPS OF FRIENDS.

' Ideally located in the Historical Centre of Lucca. The main square and the cathedral is just 5 minutes far away. Lucca was founded by the Etruscans (there are traces of a pre-existing Ligurian settlement) and became a Roman colony in 180 BC. The rectangular grid of its historical centre preserves the Roman street plan, and the Piazza San Michele occupies the site of the ancient forum. Traces of the amphitheatre can still be seen in the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro. Lucca was the site of a conference in 56 BC which reaffirmed the supremacy of the Roman First Triumvirate. '

' The walls around the old town remained intact as the city expanded and modernized, unusual for cities in the region. As the walls lost their military importance, they became a pedestrian promenade which encircled the old town, although they were used for a number of years in the 20th century for racing cars. They are still fully intact today; each of the four principal sides is lined with a different tree species. The Academy of Sciences (1584) is the most famous of several academies and libraries. The Casa di Puccini will re-open to the public on 14 September 2011.[4] At the nearby town of Torre del Lago, there is a Puccini opera festival every year in July/August. Puccini had a house there as well. The Passeggiata delle Mura. Church of San Michele of Antraccoli. There are many richly built medieval basilica-form churches in Lucca with rich arcaded façades and campaniles, a few as old as the 8th century. '

This is a lovely apartment in a prime location

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay at this very well appointed apartment. The convienience of three bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom was excellent. The only potential issue is that it is on a road and can have some nosie at night, if you have the window open. It is walking distance to everything you need.

Charming and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we made contact with the property manager, we received great service and information about this apartment. Our experience surpassed our expectations: the apartment has been beautifully renovated and is very spacious, with 3 large bedrooms, all with large windows and ensuites, living room and eat in modern kitchen. Just right for our family of 4, but comfortable for 6 too. We were lucky enough to meet the lovely owner who was in town who helped us with our luggage. Important to know that the apartment is on the top floor with 3 flights of stairs, with no elevator. However the the corner position meant there was lots of light and privacy. The location is perfect...just inside the town walls, near a reasonably priced parking garage and walking distance to the centre of town and great supermarkets. We were worried about having to pay in full for 4 days stay before arrival, but everything went smoothly and it was well worth it.

Really good apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5
We are so pleased we chose this lovely apartment nestled in an historical Palazzo. We had a wonderful warm welcome from Francesco. It's in a wonderful location, a good size, very clean, pretty and with a beautiful view. We enjoyed the 3 charming bedrooms with the 3 ensuite bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable and the linen was of a very good quality.
Francesco met us on arrival and gave us a really good outline of the best places to shop, eat and some sightseeing ideas. He also helped us book a taxi for the opera at Torre Del Lago and he helped us with our luggage. He could not have been more helpful! Lucca is lovely - with loads of restaurants, bars, cafes and the music festival in July meant it was lively every night. My favourite bar was Caffe Turandot in one of the main squares - but there are simply loads to choose from! Lucca is also perfectly situated for visiting all the other places around - Florence, Pisa, Sienna, etc.
Around the corner is a bakey, there is little shop selling cheese, water and wine. Palazzo Froussard is located in a really good location in the heart of the city centre.
We recommend you hire bicycles and ride around the wall. We also found a busy and very reasonably priced local restaurant, 5 minute walk, Trattoria da Leo, near Piazza Del Salvatore with plenty of atmosphere. We found Lucca to be one of the nicest places we have visited in Italy and we have been to quite a few cities. It is very clean and hospitable. We hope to return one day and would once again stay in this super apartment. I cannot recommend Lucca enough, and I would love to go back, and I'd book Francesco once again without hesitation. Thank you Francesco.

Lucca had been the second largest Italian city state (after Venice) with a republican constitution ('comune') to remain independent over the centuries.

In 1805, Lucca was conquered by Napoleon, who installed his sister Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi as 'Queen of Etruria'.

After 1815 it became a Bourbon-Parma duchy, then part of Tuscany in 1847 and finally part of the Italian State.

The walls around the old town remained intact as the city expanded and modernized, unusual for cities in the region. As the walls lost their military importance, they became a pedestrian promenade which encircled the old town, although they were used for a number of years in the 20th century for racing cars. They are still fully intact today; each of the four principal sides is lined with a different tree species.

The Academy of Sciences (1584) is the most famous of several academies and libraries.

The Casa di Puccini will re-open to the public on 14 September 2011.[4] At the nearby town of Torre del Lago, there is a Puccini opera festival every year in July/August. Puccini had a house there as well.

The Passeggiata delle Mura.

Church of San Michele of Antraccoli.

There are many richly built medieval basilica-form churches in Lucca with rich arcaded façades and campaniles, a few as old as the 8th century.

Piazza dell'Anfiteatro

Piazzale Verdi

Piazza Napoleone

Piazza San Michele

Duomo di San Martino (St Martin's Cathedral)

The Ducal Palace, built on the location of Castruccio Castracani's fortress. The original project was begun by Bartolomeo Ammannati in 1577–1582, and continued by Filippo Juvarra in the 18th century.

The ancient Roman amphitheatre

Church of San Michele in Foro

Romanesque church of San Giusto.

Lucca is the birthplace of composers Giacomo Puccini (La Bohème and Madama Butterfly), Nicalao Dorati, Francesco Geminiani, Gioseffo Guami, Luigi Boccherini, and Alfredo Catalani. It is also the birthplace of Bruno Menconi and artist Benedetto Brandimarte.
