Overview

About the property

Lovely apartment with 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and air conditioning.

The apartment is located in the Historic Center of Lucca inside the City Walls.

It is very spacious and the rooms of this beautiful 'period' apartment open like a flower: the noble 'Tessieri' pavements act as a union between the connecting rooms: the Kitchen, the dining room and the living room for the time shared together; three bedrooms and two bathrooms where you can relax.

There is 120 sqm filled with light, and a beautiful view towards the gardens of the internal courtyard. It's spectacular to open the windows in the springtime and enjoy the pink colours of the tree in bloom.... to walk downstairs on the walls of the city shaded by the 'century old ' trees of which the colours change season after season .... will be a true pleasure! The walls of Lucca, our special and unique garden surrounding the town for 4.5km, are at 100m. Shopping facilities, museums, bars and restaurants are within 2-3min walking.

Apartment description: the apartment consists of an entrance hall, a dining room with a table seating up to 6 persons, a fully equipped kitchen with window, a salon, 2 double bedrooms, one twin bedroom, one bathroom with double sink, wc, bidet, tub and shower and one bathroom with sink, wc, and shower enclosure.

In the apartment there is air conditioning.

Further details: Lucca is an ideal location for a winter break. The climate is often dry and cold in the winter which makes it a pleasant time for sight-seeing ,and the popular sights in Florence and Pisa are far less crowded than in the summer. Lucca is lovely before Christmas and good for shopping, both in town and at the various designer outlets 40 - 60 minutes from Lucca. Viareggio, only 20 minutes by train or car from Lucca, plays host to the second largest carnival celebrations in Italy. This is usually in February/March over four weekends and well worth seeing.

Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday

“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.

Further activities:: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.

Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.

The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.

Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.

Comics: the 2008 edition of the Internal release of the comic, of animated films and illustrations and games marked more than 100 000 passionate fans: not to be missed! Held in October/November.

Well appointed apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

Puccini Apartment is perfectly located inside the walls, a couple of minutes walk from Porta s. Pietro. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower the other with a bath. The three bedrooms are all large and comfortable. The kitchen and dining rooms overlook a courtyard garden and huge magnolia tree at the rear. Giovanna was most helpful with local information and advice as to current events in the city. The apartment is very clean and well appointed. Would recommend.

Lovely Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at apartment Puccini for four nights.

There were six adults in our party. We found the apartment to be very clean and spacious. It was just what we had expected. The kitchen and bathrooms were fitted to a high standard and all three bedrooms were a good size with plenty of storage space.

The location was excellent with shops and restaurants only a short distance away.

The owner was very helpful, providing us with I formation about Lucca, arranging our return taxi to the airport and allowing our son to store his cases in the apartment on the last day until 3pm, the official the check out time was 10am.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lucca and would recommend the apartment.

Excellant apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in Puccini. It is a lovely apartment and a good size, nicely furnished and centrally situated. Giovanna is extremely helpful and maintained good communication with us and helped us organise transport from the airport. The apartment contains everything you need for a wonderful and relaxing Italian holiday and Lucca is the perfect spot. We will certainly be booking Puccini at some point again. Cathy, Janet and Janice.

Lovely apartment in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The Puccini apartment is charming, and well stocked with most things you need. The location was perfect, and we totally enjoyed Lucca. A few things to be aware of - there are 42 steps to the apartment, parking is a problem and there is an extra charge if you use the air conditioning. Other than that, the apartment is spacious, well maintained, and the owner was friendly, helpful, and acommodating.

Owner's Response: Dear Sheryl, I just wanted to point out that the apartment is located in the historical center of Lucca and is at the second floor as is specified in detail and precisely in the description. We feel it is right that air conditioning is on request because not everyone wants it, is counted separately at the consumption. The apartment is located in the heart of the Historical Center and it is unthinkable to expect to park the car next to the house....... We offer to our guests a parking place (24/24h) nearby the apartment at the cost of 5 euro per day. Ciao, Francesco

This lovely apartment is a wonderful way to experience Lucca and its surrounding areas. Lucca is still a relatively uncrowded city with many one-of-a-kind shops, good restaurants and beautiful architectural vignettes at every turn. Its spectacular walls, where everyone should have a walk at sunset, are a treasure to behold. It is a city of bicycles, the preferred mode of transportation, frequent train and bus service to Florence, Pisa and the Tuscan shore makes Lucca a very desirable base for exploring this area of Tuscany.Special car rental rates with possibility of pickup: at the airport and drive to your property. Possibility of guided tours of the town of Lucca, its villas, and special tours in the countryside. Chauffeur with a 6 seats bus available for special tours in the region.

Other Activities: Bagni di Lucca spa, thermal baths
