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.

Details about the access to the historical center by car :

To go to the apartment by car you have to buy a temporary authorization for entering in the no traffic area (ZTL). Check online hours and costs and schedule http://wwwIt.metrosrl.it

We suggest In alterantive to take a taxi ( the train station is the best place or Carducci Parking) and ask the driver to take you to the closest parking outside the walls (Lucca is a quiet city and you can park in a free area or if you prefer in a pay garage ).

Then ask the taxi to take you at our apartment and unload the luggage.

Here below a website providing the list of parking in Lucca and costs :

Further details

Air conditioning electricity water, wifi connection ,phone for local calls and final cleaning are included in the rate.

Winter heating is charged for 5 euros daily.

Entry to the apartment is on the 2nd floor. As this is a historic building, an elevator could not be installed. Therefore, a stay here would not be ideal for anyone with reduced mobility.

The Tuscany region

About Tuscany

Tuscany is a land of inspiration that has hosted some of the world’s greatest geniuses: Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli for painting, Dante and Machiavelli for poetry and Galilee for physics, astronomy and mathematics.

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.

About the province of Lucca

Near Lucca you can enjoy the beautiful mountain view of Montecani and Garfagnana (Borgo, Mozzano, Barga). If the sea is what you’re looking for, however, there are plenty of lovely beaches along the coast such as Viarregio and Forte dei Marmi or you can even choose to relax in the resort town of Versilia.

Or why not explore the beautiful ancient strategic village of Altopascio on the via Francigena?

Whatever you choose, you’re sure to have an unforgettable stay in this region!

Lucca

More about Lucca

This historical Medieval town, once home to Napoleon’s sister, has retained its beautiful architecture. The city was also host to Puccini, which explains its rich musical heritage, and there are numerous concerts and festivals throughout the year.

Its many activities, excellent restaurants, historical monuments (villas, churches, museums…) and romantic cobblestone streets make it a holiday must when touring Tuscany.

It is ideally located for anyone wanting to discover Tuscany with Florence just 50 minutes by car, Pisa 25 minutes, and Sienna and the beaches of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi are also only a short drive away.

"More than an Apartment, a romantic dream!"

I want to reccomend this Apartment Palazzo Orsucci in Lucca to all those presons who appreciate art, culture and italian style.
We decided to have some days beetween Lucca and Florence.
The descriptions and pictures of the Lucca Apartment were beautiful but the apartment is really gorgeus. The Apartment is in the center of historic city center of Lucca (it means inside the medieval walls) in one of the most important building with view on Guinigi Tower . The furniture are at high level of comfort, brand new. Great taste and great welcoming.
We never rented before an apartment with this level of comfort!!
We never forget our walking on the walls at sunset.
