Located in the town of Lucca, just outside the medieval wall of the historic center, this beautiful 1BR apartment is located on the second floor of a 500 year-old Tuscan home. This recently restored apartment has all the touches of its original Tuscan beauty, yet it is only a 5 minute bike ride (2 bikes available to use) or 15 minute walk to the historic center of Lucca. The apartment has wood-beamed ceilings with authentic terra cotta ceiling tiles, plaster walls with original brick insets, yet a modern kitchen (including microwave), bath, and clothes washer. The large bedroom, with both a queen bed and a single bed, is perfect for a couple or family of three. Large windows on both sides of the home make it always sunny and airy. Located in a very peaceful and quiet area, it faces a private courtyard that has space to park your car. You can come to Lucca by train or bus (15 minute walk to either station), and I should be able to pick you up. The apartment is less than a kilometer to the walls of medieval Lucca – shorter with the pedestrian/bike shortcuts used by the locals. Either walking or riding bikes, it is a wonderful way to see Lucca more like a local than a tourist. And I can help you with information about your other Tuscany travel plans if you like! Contact Alessia (in Lucca) at alessia.angelini@tin.it, or Dave (in the U.S.A.) at flyboymortimer@yahoo.com with any questions or for reservation.

The Tuscany region

Lucca is an elegant, intimate, walled city in northern Tuscany with a history dating back at least to the Etruscans. Famous for its olive oil and wine production, it is just less 1 hour from Florence, 20 minutes from Pisa, 2 hrs from Siena, and 90 minutes from San Gimignano; it's 3 hrs south of Milan and north of Rome, 30 minutes to the seaside at Viareggio or Forte dei Marmi.

Piana di Lucca

The surrounding area is filled with magnificent mountain views and ancient villages, all well worth exploring. There is so much to see and do. A hike in the Cinque Terre (five little coastal villages) , a trip to the marble mines of Carrara (where Michelangelo got his marble) , a visit to Pietrasanta (where artists from all over the world come to sculpt in bronze and marble) , or a local wine tasting tour are easily accomplished in a day trip.
