About the property

Lovely apartment with 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and air conditioning.

The apartment is located in the Historic Center of Lucca only a few steps from the City walls.

It is situated on the second and final floor, the rooms of this beautiful 'period' apartment open like a flower: the noble 'Tessieri' pavements act as a union between the connecting rooms: the Kitchen, the dining room and the living room for the time shared together; three bedrooms and two bathrooms where you can relax.

There is 120 sqm filled with light, and a beautiful view towards the gardens of the internal courtyard. It's spectacular to open the windows in the springtime and enjoy the pink colours of the tree in bloom.... to walk downstairs on the walls of the city shaded by the 'century old ' trees of which the colours change season after season .... will be a true pleasure! The walls of Lucca, our special and unique garden surrounding the town for 4.5km, are at 100m. Shopping facilities, museums, bars and restaurants are within 2-3min walking.

Apartment description: the apartment consists of an entrance hall, a dining room with a table seating up to 6 persons, a fully equipped kitchen with window, a salon, 2 double bedrooms, one twin bedroom, one bathroom with double sink, wc, bidet, tub and shower and one bathroom with sink, wc, and shower enclosure.

In the apartment there is air conditioning.

Further details: Lucca is an ideal location for a winter break. The climate is often dry and cold in the winter which makes it a pleasant time for sight-seeing ,and the popular sights in Florence and Pisa are far less crowded than in the summer. Lucca is lovely before Christmas and good for shopping, both in town and at the various designer outlets 40 - 60 minutes from Lucca. Viareggio, only 20 minutes by train or car from Lucca, plays host to the second largest carnival celebrations in Italy. This is usually in February/March over four weekends and well worth seeing.

Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday

“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.

Further activities:: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.

Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.

The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.

Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.

Comics: the 2008 edition of the Internal release of the comic, of animated films and illustrations and games marked more than 100 000 passionate fans: not to be missed! Held in October/November.

Lovely apartment in wonderful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We are so pleased we chose this lovely apartment. We had a wonderful warm welcome from Giovanna & Francesco, they even met us from the bus station and took us to the apartment. It is in a wonderful location, a good size, very clean and pretty.

We enjoyed sitting around the big dining table (6 adults) in the large open plan kitchen/diner. The beds were very comfortable, the linen was very good quality. The weather turned cold, but there were plenty of bed covers to keep us warm. Heating was extra, but the owners were fair and took meter readings and invited us to look at the meter.

Around the corner is a bread shop, there is little shop selling cheese, water, wine etc across the road.

We recommend you hire bicycles, ride around the wall. We also found a busy and very reasonably priced local restaurant, 5 minute walk, Trattoria da Leo, near Piazza Del Salvatore, plenty of atmosphere. We found Lucca to be one of the nicest places we have visited in Italy and we have been to quite a few cities. It is very clean and hospitable. We hope to return one day and would stay in this super apartment. Thank you Giovanna & Francesco.

Perfect apartment in Lucca for a family!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed at Apartment Puccini for 8 nights in December with a family of 6. It was the perfect base for exploring Tuscany and Cinque Terre. The apartment was lovely, well equipped, near fabulous cafes and restaurants, on a quiet street, and very comfortable. And Giovanna was incredibly sweet and helpful. We hope to stay here again soon!

Perfect Lucca apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the charming "Puccini Apartment"! We stayed here with another family--four adults and two children in total. It was the ideal base for visiting Tuscany (though one could easily just stay in Lucca for the week!). Warm, cozy, and fully equipped for a week's stay. Giovanna was a superb hostess-- so kind and attentive--easy to work with from the start. We would certainly stay here again! Grazie mille, Giovanna!

I would highly recommend this apartment.

Verified Stay

We had a wonderful experience while in Lucca's Puccini apartment. It is located in a quiet area, close to shopping, coffee shops, & within walking distance (5 minutes) to the train station. Loved it! Owners were always accomendating. Since there was five of us there was a little trouble with hot water for showers in the mornings otherwise it was perfect.

The best 'home away from home' in Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier here. Giovanna was gracious from our first correspondence to checkout. She was always friendly and available to assist us with whatever we needed. We were 5 ladies, mom, tow daughters and two granddaughters. The place was perfect! Beautifully decorated, spotless and fully equipped with everything we needed. The location was perfect!! Lucca ended up being our favorite location after 3 weeks in Italy. We look forward to visiting again very soon. Thank you Giovanna and Francesco!!!
