Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Well known area wonderful in any season bursting with cultural delights to please the most fussy tourist.

Lucca

Villa Roocello is located in the Lucca Region which has at its epicentre the unique city of Lucca. Lucca is the capital of the Province of Lucchesia and is one of the richest areas in Tuscany for history, tradition and culture. Lucca has preserved its characteristics since Roman times with the city still surrounded by the well-preserved 16 th century ramparts that once served to defend it. The ancient ramparts now serve as a recreational area for its citizens and visitors who walk or cycle around them. The inner city is closed to most traffic, offering the visitor a lot to enjoy on foot or by bicycle. The city has many fine churches, including its grand Romanesque cathedral. You can wander the picturesque narrow, winding streets and alleys lined with alluring shops, and visit the Piazza del Anfiteatro, once the site of a Roman Colosseum, that continues to preserve its ancient form. Lucca has a museum in the house where Giacomo Puccini was born, and holds an annual opera festival in June as one of several arts events. There is a well-known antiques market in Lucca on the third weekend of each month.Leaving the city gates, there are many enjoyable excursion possibilities. Nearby are interesting historic villas, Pisa and its famous Leaning Tower , the foothills of the Apuan Alps, the seaside beach resorts of Viareggio and Forte di Marmi. The region has a well-developed transportation system enabling longer day trips to be easily made from the Lucca area to the Cinque Terre, to Carrara where Michelangelo quarried the marble for his statues and where sculptors still carry out their art, and to Florence and Siena. The area is renowned for its fine olive oil, its wines and its many gastronomic specialties. Lucca also offers numerous possibilities for those interested in hiking in the well-known mountain area of the Garfagnana, or exploring the beautiful countryside by bicycle.
