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.

We had a wonderful time exploring this gorgeous town and the apartment was in an amazing central location to all the piazzas and sights. Sonia provided plenty of information about the area/sights/restaurants/amenities so I would definitely recommend this spot to everyone.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We found this apartment to be perfect for us. Location is 'centro-centro' as an Italian acquaintance put it, an ice cream place next door and an ATM machine across the road. How convenient is that? Everything one needs during a holiday is within a short distance away and there is an unexpected silence despite being near the 2 main piazzas. The highlight of the apartment is the magnificent terrace to enjoy the sun and the views of the botanical garden and the old trees of the walls, all surrounded by amazing plants and trees: unforgettable! The management was fair and responsive. Someone is at the end of the phone, and any arrangements made are honoured promptly. The apartment is well maintained, clean and decorated sympathetically so that you have all mod cons with traditional features. (You should see the hook and eye lock on the door!) The stairway is attractive, clean and well lit. Lucca is a perfect holiday location for us. We enjoyed walking along the top of the wall (4.2 km all the way round) and sampling a flavour of the Lucchese life. There are towers to climb for a panoramic view, churches to investigate and piazzas to relax in. The restaurants seem to be family owned and run, offering traditional food. There are all sorts from cheap and cheerful to snazzy restaurants for a special meal. We enjoyed getting something from the local bakeries for breakfast in the apartment, and saved quite a lot that way, but it is also pleasant to sit out in the sun and enjoying a quiet start to the day. Lucca is an attractive, safe place to stay, with excellent public transport links to Florence, Pisa (goes right past the Leaning Tower), the airport, Viareggio, Barga, and other places you may want to explore. We tended to use the buses, which are reliable, air-conditioned, on time and cheap. We have occasionally used the train too, and it is also reliable and cheap. We found the people in Lucca friendly and exceptionally polite and helpful. I think this is a particularly nice place for couples, old and young, but there are lots of families around too.

It is literally about a 100m walk to the entrance of the Cathedral on one side and around 80m to the new Contemporary Art Museum and the shopping streets on the other side. We walked to all the major sights from the apartment. The owner was great, she gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and then a tour of the local neighbourhood, which we really appreciated as it made finding cafe, supermarket and shops much easier the next day. We also appreciated her buying us an espresso, not just because Italian coffee is great, but because it allowed us to see how the cafe ordering system works - absolutely nothing like how it works here in US! The apartment is spacious and was perfect for a senior couple. Even though it's in the center of the town it's not noisy at all, as the square and streets nearby are mainly pedestrian. The kitchen was very well supplied and the beds were comfortable. We loved the romantic view of the churches and the roofs of the old buildings! We loved our stay. Thank you! Jenny & James
