    Prepare to be impressed by Lucca

    Where the Tuscan hills roll down to meet the Tyrrhenian Sea is where Lucca waits to impress culture vultures, foodies, heritage buffs – you name it. With its striking ring of 16th-century fortifications and picture-postcard piazzas, hemmed in by honey-coloured homes, it's simply lovely just strolling the lanes. But Lucca probably won't let you do just that. Wineries and fine trattorias beckon on every corner. There's a grand Ducal Palace that demands attention, a Roman theatre and the curiously tree-topped Torre Guinigi. All that's backed up by Lucca holiday rentals that ooze class, style and traditional character.

    Lucca – a maze of wonders

    Bag yourself one of the Lucca holiday rentals in the city's historical centre and you can lose yourself in a rabbit warren of cobbled lanes and archways, all leading to wide piazzas, where Italian restaurants beckon with rustic farro stews and Tuscan cold cuts. Another walking tour takes place up on the 2.5-mile-long city walls. They date from the Renaissance era and are wide enough to ride a bike across – watch for glimpses of medieval towers and grand cathedrals as you pedal.

    Loaded with museums in Lucca

    Lucca is like a living museum in itself – those 400-year-old walls, those pretty palazzos. But it also has actual exhibition spaces that are worthy of a visit, too. Check out the Puccini Museum, which helps to chronicle the life and works of the revered Italian composer in the place of his birth. Then there's the Museo Nazionale di Palazzo Mansi, complete with centuries-old tapestries and interesting portraiture. The handsome Duomo di San Martino also magnetises, with its labyrinth pattern – carved in stone – and mysterious shrines; it's on Piazza Antelminelli.

    Tuscan summers in Lucca

    Lucca is at its busiest in the summer months. They come at roughly the same time as in the UK, running from June to August, only they get hotter – much hotter. Bring clothes for temperatures in the 30s and plenty of sunscreen, to boot. In fact, you might just want to consider bagging yourself one of the rustic Lucca holiday rentals with a pool in the nearby Tuscan hills, just to help cool off. Alternatively, a visit in autumn months, like September and October, will be milder and have the added bonus of local food festivals.

    Traditional Tuscan lands around Lucca

    Whisper the words "Western Tuscany" and what comes to mind? Rolling hills covered in vineyards and slender cypresses are a good start. What about valleys clogged with oak groves and chestnut trees, little babbling rivers or hot bubbling springs between the lot? What about rugged peaks with sheer rock faces and Alpine lakes hidden below? That's all on offer just north of Lucca, where the rises of the Alpi Apuane begins. To the west of town is the sea, where the wide sands of Lunigiana start and ferries rumble out to reach Corsica and the Tuscan Archipelago.
