The Puccini museum is situated in the same building on the second floor. The light-filled and atmospheric apartment has a very large, comfortable split level sitting room, leading straight onto the terrace. You can either dine al fresco on the terrace or inside in the dining area, adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen. The master bedroom and en suite bathroom looks over the piazza Cittadella, with its sculpture of Giacomo Puccini. There is a second double bedroom and separate bathroom.

Great location and fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment with an amazing rooftop terrace. You definitely need to be comfortable with stairs as you are at the top of the building. The view from the terrace makes it worth the effort though. Location is fantastic too. If arriving by public transportation the bus is more convenient than the train. Everything we needed was provided ...

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the apartment or Carolina's management of it. She arranged for a car to pick us up at Pisa airport and deliver us at the doorstep. She was waiting for us with a stack of information about Lucca and booked a table at a nearby restaurant for us for dinner that night so that we did not have to deal with a decision in the throes of jet-lag. She introduced us to a delightful guide who made our experience memorable and relaxing. She recommended incredible restaurants and local activities and gave us great advice on public transportation to nearby cities and attractions. And, when we stupidly locked ourselves out of the apartment, sent someone with an extra set of keys to rescue us so that we did not miss a flight connection at the Pisa Airport.

We were expecting a third-floor walk up (in American, that's four floors); but it could be taxing for anyone who was not expecting it. The roof terrace is stunning and we spent many happy hours drinking local wine and eating local cheese and bread out there. There is only one reason for me not to recommend this apartment -- so that it's not already booked when we want to return. Thank you Carolina!

Fabulous apartment! Gracious host!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Puccini and are especially grateful to our gracious host Carolina. She helped us out of a potential travel snafu!

We arrived in Lucca late afternoon (in a heat wave) scheduled to stay with a different host at a different apartment, but that experience fell through. It took 2.5 hours to scramble but we found Carolina and the Casa Puccini. Not only was it available, clean, and ready, Carolina dropped what she was doing and was at the apartment to meet us by 6:45pm. She was an angel and totally saved us

Everything happens as it should because we really enjoyed meeting Carolina. She is very charming and goes above and beyond. She greeted us with cold water (it was 95 degrees) and a chilled bottle of white wine. She wrote out restaurants on a map for us. Showed us around the apartment in detail. She checked in on us throughout our three day stay in Lucca and even helped us schedule an early morning taxi when I was having trouble getting that done

Plus we loved the apartment! The rooftop terrace has gorgeous views, to see the angel on top of San Michele took my breath away. The Puccini museum is downstairs, a Puccini statue is just out the front door. All the Puccini love is a uniquely charming twist. One afternoon we were napping and awakened to a gorgeous opera concert in the piazza out front around the Puccini statue

The location was PERFECT! Charming cafes and gelato are out your door. It's an easy walk to the walls and all around the town center.

We were so at home in this apartment. Bright colors, fresh sunlight, great kitchen, excellent bathrooms and showers. And the best part....AC worked fantastically and the master bed was so comfortable!

We loved the apartment, we loved the location, and we love Carolina. We will definitely book this apartment again when we return to Lucca. Brava all around.

Historische Wohnung mit sehr schöner Dachterasse

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche in dieser schönen Wohnung mitten in Lucca verbracht. Die Wohnung ist sehr speziell aufgeteilt - so steht beispielsweise eine grosse Badewanne im Schlaffzimmer. Alles ist aber sehr reizvoll gestalltet in diesem historischen Haus. Über der Küche ist ein Podest errichtet auf dem man sehr schön lesen oder auch fernsehen kann.

Gulia - die ein kleinen Laden direkt in der Nähe der Wohnung hat - war sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns mit guten Empfehlungen versorgt.

Das Highlight ist sicher die grosse Dachterasse wo man herlich relaxen kann. Erstaunlich wie ruhig es dort ist wenn es im Ort sehr gedrängt zugeht.

Speziell an der Wohnung ist natürlich auch, dass man direkt über dem Puchini Museum wohnt.

Einziger Nachteil war, dass man das Auto ausserhalb der Stadt parken musste (10 Minuten Fussweg). Aber das ist in der Altstadt von Lucca generell so geregelt.

Einfach herrlich!

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist mitten im Herzen Luccas gelegen und liebevoll ausgestattet. Ein einziger Traum ist aber die grosszügige Terasse, von der aus man einen hinreissenden Blick auf die schöne Stadt hat. Und weil's so schön ist, haben wir (mein Mann, ich und unsere 13-jährige Tochter) meist auf unserer Terasse zu Abend gegessen, obwohl die Stadt voller kleiner netter Restaurants ist. Tritt man aus der Haustür, ist man sofort in unmittelbarer Nähe der schönen Piazzen mit Bars und Lebensmittelläden, zentraler geht's glaube ich nicht. Die Wohnung ist sehr gepflegt und mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet, der Aufgang der Treppe ist zwar nach ein Paar Glas italienischem Rotwein etwas mühsam, aber gut für die Beine :-). Langweilig wird einem nie, neben dem Bummeln in der schönen Stadt oder dem Schlendern auf der Mauer ist man in 30 Minuten an den Stränden oder in den Bergen zum Wandern (wir haben allerdings lieber am Strand gefaulenzt!). Kurz: wir fanden's einfach wunderbar und denken ganz oft an unsere schönen Abende auf unserer herrlichen Terasse zurück!
