Make a holiday apartment in Lucca your home away from home

Lucca is the capital of the Tuscan province of the same name and is a small, medieval city enclosed entirely by immense Renaissance-era walls. They were built to defend the city and were never breached. The ancient ramparts are so wide that today they are an elevated park with benches, footpaths and cycle lanes. Between these fortifications is an elegant city of plazas, ancient towers, palaces, churches and pastel-coloured buildings.

HomeAway has gorgeous holiday apartments in Lucca that are located close to the city and main attractions, and are available all year round. They have from two to 14 bedrooms and are furnished to a very high standard. All are spacious and many come with their own private gardens, grounds or swimming pools. In addition there are Lucca holiday rentals within the ancient walled city. There are more beautiful historic sites ten miles from Lucca, where visitors can find more reasonably priced holiday homes in Pisa.

Things to do

-Historic monuments: Lucca’s medieval skyline was once dotted with more than 100 towers, the homes and private fortresses of wealthy merchant families. Today, only a few are left and two can be climbed. They are the Clock Tower and the Guinigi Tower, which has a roof garden of oak trees. Other historic buildings worthy of note include the Church of San Michele, a 12th-century building filled with paintings, frescoes and sculptures.

-Museums: Lucca was the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini, one of Italy’s most famous composers. His childhood home has been turned into a museum, the Casa Natale di Giacomo Puccini. The ten rooms contain some of his musical scores, manuscripts, original concert brochures and personal letters.

-Festivals: Every summer the city hosts The Lucca Summer Festival, a huge open-air musical celebration in Piazza Napoleone, Lucca's main public square. It features a host of big names, and in the past Bob Dylan, Elton John and Pink have performed on its stage. If planning a visit, it is advised tourists book holiday villas in Lucca well in advance. The Lucca Winter Festival in November and December features jazz, gospel, classical and other musical concerts at the Teatro del Giglio.

-Shopping: Lucca’s main shopping thoroughfare is Via Fillungo containing an elegant mix of independent boutiques and stores selling clothes, leather goods, antiques and jewellery. In September and December Piazza San Michele hosts a temporary market with stalls selling locally made handicrafts, sweets, toys and regional foods.

Weather in Lucca

Visitors can enjoy holiday villas in Lucca all through the year as the city benefits from hot summers and mild winters. The temperature during the hottest months of July and August often climbs to 30°C , while in December and January 8-10°C is the norm. There can be numerous rainy days during autumn and winter with October and November being the wettest months.

Travel to Lucca

The nearest airports to Lucca are in Pisa and Florence and there are good road and rail connections from both these cities. There is also a bus that travels from Pisa direct to Lucca. Hiring a car is a must for visitors who want to travel around the wider province. Most people walk or rent a bike within the city walls as driving is primarily restricted to residents.

Excellent compact appartment. Beautiful shower area. Locaton great for shopping and socialising

4 of 5
High quality accommodation in a vibrant busy area of Lucca. Any noise created by revellers stops around midnight. Not a huge issue. Everyone seems to be enjoying the atmosphere!

First time in Tuscany

5 of 5
Just spent our first week in Tuscany and it wont be our last . Had a great trip , The appartment is the perfect base to explore Lucca and the surrounding area . We really felt we were living the Italian life . Liz the owner makes the most of the appartments size , and it has everything you will need during your stay. Its beautifully presented with some really nice touches , and the attention to detail such as fresh cut flowers and a bottle of bubbley chilling in the fridge on arrival show she cares about her guests . Its an easy train journey from Pisa airport into Lucca and then just a 15 min walk to the appartment . Liz met us at the appartment and showed us the arround while giving us some good tips on restaurants and things to do close by . Just loved to sit with the windows open and listen to the people talking in the street below . The highlight of the week was attending the Puccini Opera concert in the church. This happens every night at 7pm and i would recomend it to everyone , such a simple and intimate venue my wife and i loved it . You are spolit for choice for lovely restaurants in the city , they dont look much from the outside , but once inside the food and service is excellent . Lost count of the number of times we strolled around the city walls with frequent stops for a coffee or a glass of wine, and to watch the world go by . The whole place has such a quiet charm and slower pace thats just so refreshing in this busy busy world. Are there things that could be improved ? of course . The shower is small and takes a few days to get used to but it works and serves its purpose . But thats the whole point of the apartment, its not trying to be a modern hotel room with all mod cons and flashing lights , its deliveres something so much more and puts you into a frame of mind that no modern hotel can ever do simply from its style and location . Would i recommened the apartment ? YES . would I return YES .
