Dreaming Cottage is a perfect starting point for excursions in this culturally rich region.
Lucca is one of the gems of Tuscany: smaller and more intimate than nearby Pisa, Florence and Siena; it’s a beautiful historic town with Roman origins, whose renaissance walls form a shady circular promenade around which you can walk or cycle.
It offers medieval towers to visit, ancient churches, cathedral, palazzi, art galleries, museums, botanical gardens, stylish boutiques, good restaurants, an opera house, daily recitals of Puccini (himself a Lucchese) in a 12th c church. There’s also a Puccini festival every summer at Torre del Lago, 30 mins away.
The many ravishing 16th & 17th c grand villas and gardens within 5 mins of the house are well worth visiting.
