Visitors who book their holiday villas in Montevettolini during the second week of September will see its most colourful party, the Medieval Festival. Locals dress up in period costumes as merchants, crusaders, falconers, pilgrims and troubadours, wandering the streets and medieval themed market playing musical instruments. Other festivals include the costumed procession of Jesus's Passion and Death. It is held every three years on Good Friday.

-Historic monuments: Montevettolino is like a living museum with ancient squares, buildings, churches and palaces. They include the Villa Medicea built as a hunting residence for the powerful Medici of Florence, between the 15th and the 16th centuries. Older than this is the former town hall palace, constructed before the 13th century.

The apartment was very nice, clean well equipped and tastefully decorated with nice terrace. We have visited Lucca a few times now and will probably do so again in the future. Unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed with this particular booking through this site, due to the fact that one of the main reasons for booking it was that it stipulates in the details that there are bikes with the apartment. It was extremely disappointing to find out on arrival that it does not actually have bikes and as a result of that we had to hire bikes from a local hire shop. It would be perhaps prudent for homeandaway to ensure property information is correct before advertising to avoid further customer disappointment.
