Lucca: a gem hidden in Tuscany

Lucca might not be as famous as Rome or Venice, but those who make the effort to reach the evocative old town are treated to some of Northern Italy's most picturesque architecture and fabulous historical museums. Don't limit yourself to the city. The beautiful rolling Tuscan landscape and beaches near the Province of Lucca vacation rentals provide all sorts of activities, whether it's rambling in the hills or hopping on water sports in the ocean. At the end of the day, you can settle in to some fine Lucchesi cuisine and local wines. Bliss.

Things to do

Start with the capital Lucca

If you've never been before, a good introduction when you stay in a Province of Lucca vacation rental is the city itself, which is packed with centuries-old architecture and surrounded by ancient city walls. The evocative old town is made up of a network of picturesque narrow streets that lead on to sunny piazzas flanked by towers, palatial buildings and fascinating museums. Beyond the city, the Tuscan countryside is dotted with elegant villas surrounded by swaying cypress trees. Try the Villa Torrigiani, whose grounds have magnificent Italian gardens, or the splendid 16th-century Villa Mansi.

Activities

Time for Tuscan adventures in Lucca

Beyond the city walls, the Tuscan landscape provides some magnificent adventures. Down along the coast, the beaches and cool ocean are particularly appealing on the hot summer days, as are the myriad water sports on offer. Alternatively, take to 2 wheels and ride along the shady coastal pine forests. The mountains provide more family adventures, whether you're looking for gentle walks, challenging treks, or horseback riding. If all that sounds too much effort, treat yourself to a little pampering at one of the spas, or get involved in one of the colorful festivals. If all else fails, you can dive into Lucca's mouth-watering cuisine.

Weather

Try Lucca's agreeable climes in spring or fall

The long, hot days of summer, between June and August, are the busiest time for Province of Lucca vacation rentals. The weather is gorgeous, with blue skies and temperatures which hover around the 80s. If you're looking for idyllic climes without the throngs of travelers, visit in spring or fall, when the prices of rentals dip. It might be cold and you'll certainly need warm clothes, but if you're looking for complete solitude, an authentic slice of Italy without any other tourists in sight and rock bottom prices, try visiting in winter.

Natural features

Wildlife awaits beyond Lucca city walls

Tuscany is packed with national parks and reserves, where wildlife is given a chance to thrive. If you head beyond the cities, you'll find a land of woodland and rolling hills which are home to a surprising number of species. When you go walking, look out for shy deer darting across the meadows, wild boar rustling around in the woods and elusive red foxes. Be careful not to tread on the hares or porcupines. Birdwatchers should be suitably impressed with the number of feathered friends in the marshlands and woods. Sightings of herons, glossy ibis and tawny owls are commonplace.
