Hidden Jewel Nestled in Old World Charm

  • 5 of 5

Hidden in the center of Lucca , a two minute walk through the arches to the wall surrounding this ancient city lies "Adagio", a tastefully decorated, charming one bedroom apartment with all the amenities need for a day, a week or a month ! The owner, Liz, has paid attention to the finest detail and is a superb resource for everything you need to successfully explore the city and the surrounding Tuscany country side with its spectacular villas and mansions as werll as area of untouched nature.Within walking distance are many medieval churches, art galleries, historical museums, upscale shopping, nightly free classical concerts and also venues for international jazz and rock festivals. Immediately below is a fine wine shop where owner Ricardo will fully educate you about Tuscany's finest wines. Across the street is a delightful place for morning cappuccino and cafes and restaurants are within two to ten minute walks away on the ancient cobblestone streets.

If you want an authentic experience of immersion in Italian culture at its finest then Adagio is your beautiful nest to begin and end your daily experience.

Adagio was beyond My Expectations !

  • 5 of 5

My three-week stay in Europe would include visiting dear friends in Greece with a stopover in Lucca on the way home. Since I was travelling alone it was important to find a place to stay in Lucca that was safe, relaxing, centrally located and offered lots of character. Adagio was absolutely the perfect choice. Let me explain why...

Liz was the most charming host. Upon my arrival she met me at the apartment and leisurely showed me everything I needed to know. Her suggestions on where to eat that evening proved most helpful since it was not only close but offered friendly service and great food... perfect ending for a long day of travel. Throughout my stay she was available for all my questions.

The apartment was charming, decorated with the magic touch of Liz's creative works. It felt like being home away from home. Although small, the apartment included absolutely everything needed for a comfortable stay and more...

To my delight, Liz's husband Giuseppe (Extra Virgin Cooking Classes) offers professional cooking classes in a casual setting at their private home. I understand you can also take the classes in their private villa located outside of town. It was a fun and totally informative day.

In addition, if there are any art students out there, please know there is a wonderful studio (Studio Borgo) located minutes by train in Borgo a Mozzano where you can schedule painting classes. I am a beginner and to my surprise created a couple of paintings that I actually framed!

Finally after having a busy schedule while in Lucca you can understand how "coming home" to Adagio was a welcoming haven to rest my tired bones. Thank you to Liz and Giuseppe for making my stay most enjoyable.

St. Thomas, VI

Adagio apartment is a true gem in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Best located in the heart of Lucca's Centro Historico, Adagio combines comfort, quiet, and efficiency with an absolutely beautiful decor. You can walk everywhere

( 10 min. from LIS, my Italian school), or jump on a bike (rental 100 meters away).

The efficiently appointed kitchen makes it fun to dine home. And if you haven't completed your research prior to your trip, there's an abundance of information and books to perfectly guide and enhance your Tuscan stay. Grazie Liz, for a wonderful holiday at Adagio - we'll be back! B&C

Beautiful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from three weeks in Europe and our highlight was the five days we spent in Lucca at this property. Our regret is that we didn't stay longer. The pictures represent exactly how charming this property is, Liz has left nothing out, you have everything you need and more. She is an absolute delight to deal with and Ricardo at the wine shop below is great. Thank you so much Liz, we hope to see you again either in Lucca or one of your other properties.

The apartment had everything I needed and more! Great location! A wine store on one side. A gelato shop on the other side. Easy walking distance to the wall or anywhere in town. I look forward to returning! Thank you Liz!
