The Tuscany region

Lucca is a city and comune in Tuscany, central Italy, situated on the river Serchio in a fertile plain near (but not on) the Ligurian Sea. It is the capital city of the Province of Lucca. Among other reasons, it is famous for its intact Renaissance-era city walls.


A main market is held in Lucca every Wednesday and Saturday morning from 9am – 1pm in Via dei Bacchettoni. Its stalls include clothes, flowers, local food and household products.


The nearest village is Marginone, it is about 800meters away, here you can find a small grocery shop, butcher, baker and several restaurants. At Montecatini terme, which is 10km away, there are all amenities.

Altopascio is a comune in the Province of Lucca in the Tuscany region of Italy with a population of c. 13300.

Already inhabited in Roman times, Altopascio gained in importance due to its Spedale (hostel, first mentioned in 1084) for the pilgrims who travelled on the Via Francigena, leading from France to Rome. This formed the basis of the later Order of Saint James of Altopascio.

It is famous for the battle of Altopascio in 1325 in which the Ghibelline leader Castruccio Castracani defeated the Florentines Guelphs led by Ramon de Cardona. Thanks to his victory, he became duke of Lucca.

The Spedale declined starting from the 16th century, until Grand Duke Peter Leopold suppressed it in 1773, to favour that in Pescia.

Main sights

Badia of St. Peter, known from 1039. It was held by the Benedictines from 1086 and then by the Camaldolese from 1103. It reached its maximum splendour in the later 13th century, but by the Battle of Altopascio (1325) it began to decline, and was abandoned in 1408. Of the medieval original structure, only the exterior of the apse remain.

Church of Santi Jacopo, Cristoforo and Eligio (best known as San Jacopo Maggiore), annexed to the Spedale. It was a medieval hospital complex, of which the cloister, the bell tower and parts (façade and apse area) of the Romanesque church.

Don't forget to visit the Pinocchio park in Collodi and the Leonardo da Vinci museum in Vinci.

"A holiday that exceeded expections!"

We booked La Piaggia for a 60th birthday celebration, as we had always wanted to stay in a villa in Tuscany. The website pictures and reviews looked good, but you never know what something will reall… More
