The Tuscany region

Lucca is located between Florence and Pisa, near mountains and the sea. An ideal homebase for exploring Tuscany, daytrips to Sienna and Cortona by car and Vesilia, Florence and Pisa by train or bus. Rich history: Etruscans, Romans and the Renaissance. Napoleon gave his sister Elisa the city as a present in 1805 and she built a treelined boulevard atop the Renaissance Walls which are wonderful for strolls, biking, jogging or picnics.

Shopping is excellent for local artisan jewellery and ceramics as well as name brand shops and boutiques. Traditional Tuscan cuisine, simple, elegant and delicious for every budget! Visit the wine road or villas in the surrounding hills. Lucca Summer Festival features pop and rock music in July, year-round classical concerts in San Giovanni and during September the festival of Volto Santo and Santa Croce are interesting for the processions and candle-lit buildings.

Winter in Lucca is temperate and rainy. Spring and Autumn are mild. Summer is hot. Christmas and Easter are festive with markets and local wares. The antique market is every third weekend of the month. Every Saturday and Wednesday morning there is a market along the Walls.

"Amazing apartment...loved it...will be going back and telling all our friends!"

We stayed in this apartment on our recent trip to Italy...I don't have enough words for this place. It's perfect! We stayed in Rome and Florence along with Lucca...within 2 hours of being in Lucca, both my husband and 82 yr old mother had decided we should of just stayed here the entire time! The apartment is centrally located inside the walls of Lucca. The is a grocer, farmacia, and tons of restaurants and beautiful shops all around you. The apartment is beautifully remodeld and so very very comfortable. Oh and did I say that we were met by Paolo who was so gracious and accomodating and he had brought us "treats" and a bottle of local wine for our arrival...very nice. Thank you Paolo...we will be back and already have told some friends here at home that they need to stay with you too!
