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 lovely week long stay here and found the apartment to be spacious and airy. The beds have good memory foam mattresses with quality bed linen, we all slept really well! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need if you wish to eat in. It felt really welcoming to come home to after a days sightseeing. We visited both Pisa and Florence by train as it was much easier than driving. The trains are cheap, clean and plentiful. Lucca itself is an amazing place. Walking the walls with the locals and their dogs, hiring bikes to ride the walls and relaxing with a coffee and people watching are a great way to get a feel for the city. There are lots of great shops and restaurants, beautiful churches and other sites of interest. Lavinia's parents welcomed us to the apartment with delicious Easter cake and a bottle of wine from their own vineyard. They were so warm and friendly and showed us where everything was, and were on call if we needed them (we didn't, everything was perfect!). We will definitely return!

The apartment is very spacious and well decorated in Italian style. The managers were very responsive and any minor issues we had they were there very quickly to remedy for us. The internet was upgraded while we we stayed and was quite fast and reliable after the upgrade - I was able to join online meetings over Skype without any problems. The apartment came with 2 bikes we were able to use and we hired a 3rd locally for the month for our 5 y/o. The ride around the wall is a perfect distance for young ones at about 4.5km and has beautiful views of the town inside and outside the wall. Stepping out the front door puts you in a square with a very old cathedral that has been excavated below the floor to reveal ancient building and mosaics. We stayed during November and towards the end of the month an ice-skating rink was assembled in the neighbouring square which added to the amazing charm of this town.
