Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Lucca - Anfiteatro Elena, Lucca
Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This is a very elegant and exclusive self catering apartment recently restored and furnished to a very high quality level. The extreme modern and sophisticated furnishing style is combined with the antique atmosphere of the original stone wall and original theatre steps in a very suggestive location facing the very well preserved Amphitheatre Square.
The apt lies on the first floor (about 25 steps from the street) of a building of the ancient Roman Amphitheatre, where 2000 years ago gladiatorial shows and games were traditionally held. Progressively the original function was lost and it was fortified for military purposes; then it was used as prisons. More recently, in the first half of 1800 it was restored.
Following a project by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini its profile was slightly adjusted and it became the present day square with the famous elliptic shape which correspond, to a great extend, to the area of the roman arena. The remains of the roman Amphitheatre are preserved and incorporated in some buildings bordering the square. It may be interesting to know that in this apartment the large steps leading you from the living room to the dining room were originally tiers where people sat and enjoyed gladiator games.
Entrance in the living room, separated and fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, a matrimonial bedroom with en-suite bathroom with a bat tub, a twin bedroom and a matrimonial bedroom sharing a bathroom with a shower enclosure. Toilet (without shower but washing machine). Every room is provided with an independent air co unit. Wi-Fi. Satellite television.
