Lucca is located in a strategic position to visit Tuscany, both by car and by public transport.

It is characterised by its many churches (St. Michael, St. Martin, St. Frediano ..) squares (Piazza Napoleone, Amphitheater, Piazza San Frediano ..) and its monuments, plus the surrounding countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves that make it an attractive.landscape. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=84kFROr8Eq4

The most famous villas of Lucca can be reached easily by car and represent the pearl of our territory (Torrigiani villa, Villa Grabau, Villa Mansi ...).

The art cities of Pisa (17km) and Florence (75 km) are a must for anyone staying in Tuscany.

By car or by train you can easily reach Portofino and the Cinque Terre in Liguria, characterized by ancient villages perched high above the sea and which represent one of the most beautiful natural sites in the world.

In the month of July, the "Lucca Summer Festival", one of the most important international music festivals in Italy.

A lovely flat in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had liked the look of this flat beforehand and as soon as we went in the door we found it just as in the photographs - bright, spacious, well designed and also clean! Our hostess, Renata, and her husband were kind enough to collect us from the airport as it was the May day holiday and there were no buses and from then on we found her very helpful. She knows some English but when that proved a little difficult we were able to phone her daughter, Lavinia, who is fluent - the joys of mobile phones! (incidentally the WiFi in the flat seemed quick)

We loved Lucca itself and the flat was so convenient, just a few yards to the underpass, left to go through the walls into the old city, or onto the walls for a pleasant walk, or right to go into the local suburb with banks, bakeries, cafés, Esselunga supermarket and more. On our first evening we ate in Al Viale, a cafe/bar/restaurant very popular with local people. We had three meals there and enjoyed all - no pretensions just good Italian food, well prepared and served cheerfully and professionally, all at a very reasonable price.

The flat was handy for the station too so we were able to visit Florence, Montecatini, Pistoia, Pisa, Bagni di Lucca and Viareggio. Trains are cheap and the ticket machines have a good English interface.

Thoroughly recommend but the flat is on the top floor and some people might find the stairs a challenge

Your experience (public)

We rented this apartment for six nights just last week. This is a super place. In the 25 years plus we have been traveling throughout Europe, we have yet to receive the kind of customer service given to us in this very lovely apartment. Renata and her husband (sorry I can't remember his name), our hosts, even fed the parking meter for us so that we could visit Florence without the inconvenience of a rented car and the much needed peace of mind. From the first contact with Lavinia, Renata's daughter, through the moment we checked out we received every piece of information and quality service we needed--all of this with a great smile on their faces. They even carried our luggage up three flights of stairs. They are absolutely the nicest and loveliest people.

The apartment itself is beautiful, well appointed, and furnished with all modern conveniences. I loved the large space and all the furnishings. The bedrooms are large and the apartment has beautiful wood beams. I will definitely return to Apartment Emma and highly recommend it to all. You will not be disappointed. My only regret is not having spent enough time there.

Wonderful Property and perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful 2 + bedroom apartment served my family of 4 perfectly - the location was ideal with easy access to the city, train station and larger grocery stores. We drove a van while visiting northern Italy and parking was easier than expected - just 200 meters away and a 5 Euro daily rate.

The unit was nicely appointed and the owners were there immediately when we had an issue with the coffee pot - dropping a new unit off that same day.

Please realize the unit is on the 3rd floor of the building and not easily accessible - we got used to the climb up the stairs and it didn't take away from the experience.

We really enjoyed being outside the city walls in a large newly decorated unit - we accessed the old city whenever needed but found good restaurants outside the walls with excellent prices. Don't miss the Pizza, beer and service at Pizzera da Ninni - best pizza in Italy. The coffe and pastries next door to the Toursit Center is a great way to start the day.

We hope You enjoy this apartment and the area as much as we did!!

Fantastic Apartment in Lucca. Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Apartment Emma. The hosts, Renarta & Lavinia gave us a friendly welcome and were most helpful. The apartment style and decoration is beautiful and layout / rooms are perfect for 4-6 people. Particularly loved the kitchen and mezzanine area with sofa perfect for chilling out / reading.

We stayed during winter and the bedrooms were a little cold as the air con heating didn't seem enough but it wasn't a major problem. Maybe just needs a little extra heater when its really cold outside like it was for us. You can hear traffic when in the front bedroom, but it didn't keep us awake. The back bedroom is totally quite. You can't hear the train line that is behind the house at all, no problems there.

The location of the apartment is perfect as its just opposite the old city walls and its a quick 2 min walk across the road and into the old city of Lucca. Big supermarket around the corner and bakery just inside the old city. One downside of apartment was that you have to pay 5 euros each day for parking. Would be great if parking could be provided or discounted for guests. Wi-fi was super fast and reliable!

Stay here you, you'll love it.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry for heating probably you have not set the right temperature in the room. If you called me I would have remedied. For parking in Lucca all the car park are not free. The car Park close to our flat is the cheapest. car park is not included in the price. Anyway thank you for the kind words. We are happy that we spent you time in our flat! Renata
