Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The apartment is located in the heart of Lucca's historic city center and has a view of the Giunigi tower which dates back to the Medieval period and is one of the most well-known towers in town.
Having been completely remodeled in 2012, the apartment is equipped with the most modern conveniences. The décor is modern with the occasional antique here and there which perfectly blends in and enhances the overall design.
Restoration was done in such a way as to preserve the elegance and charm of the original architecture. Being an historical building is located on the second floor with no elevator but a stair with large steps.The original high oak-beamed ceiling in the living room lends space and grandeur to the apartment. The bedroom is completely frescoed with 18th century paintings and there are beautiful views of the Guinigi tower from all of the large windows which also guarantee a bright interior. The central location means all the main shopping streets (via Fillungo, via Santa Croce, via Nuova) are just a few steps away, as are the numerous restaurants and coffee shops.
These features make the apartment ideal for couples wanting to live an experience steeped in history and tradition in old and modern-day Lucca.

Tuscany’s capital is Florence but there are many other towns which will surely satisfy your curiosity.
Some of the smaller towns in this region (Lucca, Pisa, Sienna) boast a long history of fine art dating back to the Etruscan period, contributing to the beauty of this Italian gem called Tuscany. But Tuscany is not only medieval and renaissance art and architecture; it is also a land with beautiful and diverse landscapes which any nature lover can appreciate.
