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.

Loved the terrace for sunset drinks. Inside is very comfortable, extremely clean & cool. Artisanal bakery, wine, ice-cream shop and two good restaurants nearby. 5 minute walk to the city wall. Very enjoyable break in delightful Lucca, Pisa & Viarreggio. Special thanks for sorting out our transport issue to the airport. Knight in shining armour.

Renata kindly met us at the apartment and gave us lots of information and maps. It is an 8 minute walk to the bus terminal, (we caught the Lucca bus from Pisa airport), and a short walk from the train station, from where you can travel to the coast, (20 minutes to Viareggio). We loved Lucca, with its ancient city walls which you can walk or cycle the whole way round on a tree lined drive. The apartment , (top floor of an old building), is opposite the walls, so an easy walk to explore the city and visit the historic buildings, old winding streets, piazzas, botanic garden, cafes, restaurants, and of course gelaterias! Thank you Renata and Lavinia for a lovely stay.

Being met and escorted to the property (which would not have been easily found otherwise) by the agent was great. The house was absolutely beautiful, so well decorated, furnished and very well equipped. Every detail had obviously been given much thought and therefore the overall feel was very luxurious and enjoyable. The location was ideal just 20 minutes from the centre of Lucca and all the shops etc. The position of the property was delightful with stunning views over Lucca and the valley with the mountains in the distance and at night the lights of the city were a fabulous back drop. The pool was sunny almost all day until well into the evening and was spotless and an absolute joy. The detail of the shaded seating area and high quality sun beds meant that we spent so much time enjoying the pool that we did half the sight seeing trips we had planned. The house was absolutely spotlessly clean and the owner, Marco, regularly visited to take the rubbish away and dealt with any questions we had. The villa / garden / pool was generally free of insects, but the great addition of fly screens to the windows was superb meaning we could leave the bedroom windows open at night to enjoy the gentle breeze without being bitten by anything. Air conditioning was there, however with we did not have to use it as the temperature was always near perfect. The villa is an absolute joy and the best overall we have stayed in, however there is just one thing I would want anyone else looking at this property to be aware of and that is the steep road leading up to it. We have always been very lucky before and amazingly without exception have been upgraded or received a better hire car than expected except for this visit when we were presented by the hire firm with a very underpowered little hatchback and that struggled to get up the hill with 2 adults, 2 children and luggage. Therefore, I would recommend making sure you have a half decent hire car!
