About Anna Capasso
Home sweet home ... home is the place that best represents us. Travelling gives the opportunity to extend the boundaries of own home and mind, so it is very important to ensure that everyone feels at ease even in a different house than own. The hospitality and welcome are the basis of human civilization.
Anna Capasso purchased this Apartment in 2010

Il Glicine Stay 26 May to 5 June 2019
The apartment is very comfortable, it is as seen and described on the website, spacious, modern and well equipped with a pleasant outdoor seating area. It is in a great location - a quiet residential area yet only a ten minute walk to the historical centre of Lucca. Anna's administration is efficient and you feel very welcome. We found Anna's restaurant recommendations very helpful, particularly enjoying the traditional 'Trattoria Da Giulio', though that is just one of the many restaurants to enjoy as you are spoilt for choice. For a pasta lunch we would suggest trying 'In Pasta' on Corso Garibaldi and on the night that you just fancy a pizza try 'Pizzeria Dal Ciaccia' just a few blocks away on San Concordio. (For those who are not enthusiastic about animals, you may just find yourself converted by the occasional company of Telos the remarkable family dog.)
Lucca itself has a lot to offer as does the surrounding area, we had a car and once you have mastered the one-way system around Lucca you are well positioned for getting about. For drivers - one word of caution concerning the 'aeroplane' roundabout near McDonald's. It is not a roundabout! When returning to the apartment from the north be sure to take the second exit otherwise you will find yourself on the toll road. If visiting Pisa we suggest using the SS12, just by the Esselunga supermarket, go straight on and under the bridge, it takes you directly to the north gate which leads to Piazza dei Miracoli. We parked in a residential area outside the walls and walked. We would definitely recommend Lucca as a holiday destination and Anna's apartment as the place to stay.

We stayed at Anna and Gabriele's apartment for 6 weeks and it was perfetto. Anna made our life easy with great information and local knowledge, and we enjoyed every minute. The apartment is well appointed, close to the old town and the community of San Concordia. We hope to return.
Perfect location to Lucca
There are far too many positives to write about. The location couldn’t get any better. It’s a short walk to the walls of Lucca. The apartment was spacious and clean, and provided all the necessary kitchen items one needs. It’s quiet and private, and a great place to rest after many hours being a tourist.
The golden retriever “Telos”, is an added bonus. He stops by once in awhile for a scratch and then leaves.
Not sure if the 3 plug adapter is standard, but my 2 plug European hair dryer wouldn’t fit the outlets. They had an adapter on a hair dryer and was able to utilize for my own dryer. As an American this is first time I’ve seen 3 plugs. This isn’t a negative, just an fyi should you travel from someplace other than Europe.
This rental really fit our needs to a t, and the owners were very pleasant to deal with. Highly recommend.
Great location - Beautiful apartment
Anna's apartment is clean and well equipped. We did not have a car, so it was convenient to walk into town. There were bicycles available if you would like to use them. We fell in love with Lucca.
Great apartment in a good location
We really enjoyed our stay in this cosy apartment. It had all we needed for a comfortable stay and was very clean and modern.
The bikes were a real bonus and we used them a lot to explore the lovely town of Lucca.
We hope to return one day. Thanks
Beautiful design and very comfortable
We enjoyed our stay at Il Glicine di Lucca very much. The apartment had everything that you could need, including a beautiful, friendly dog.
The location of the property is outside the walls of Lucca, but we enjoyed the 15 minute walk to the centre.
Anna and Gabriel were extremely helpful and accommodating, discreetly on hand if we needed anything.
I would recommend staying here!
