About the property

2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom

The apartment, completely renovated, is located on the ground 3 of a historic building and consists of an entrance hall, which accompanies a bright living area with sofa bed and TV, on the left is the dining room with fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with sink / shower / toilet and bidet.

To the right of the entrance is the sleeping area: 1 double, 1 double bedroom with two single beds.

A kit is a convenient utility room with washer dryer.

The property described includes all linen (kitchen, bathroom and bedroom).

The Secret of Viola is located in Via Antonio Mordini (formerly Via Nuova) that goes from Via della Fratta Via Fillungo.

Calling 1300 "Via Nuova" this road was built during the construction of the second wall when you had to divert, or cover, the river that protected the first walls.

The current name comes from the scholar Antonio Mordini born in the province of Lucca, a distinguished lawyer.

The apartment is located in a point to reach in a few seconds walk to Via Fillungo, the main street and typically medieval center of Lucca. It, within the walls, is one of the most iconic symbols of the city as the center and heart of tourism, commercial and craft of the Lucchese. This road leads directly to Piazza Amphitheatre and, a little later, in Piazza San Frediano where stands the Basilica of this saint and bishop of Lucca.

Within walking distance there are also many other places of interest testimonies of the glorious past of the city.

The ideal location also allows easy access to the walls, which are located just 3 minutes on foot (280 m), to go for walks and enjoy the relaxing view or to keep fit by jogging.

Lucca is the result of a balance between culture, nature, good food and fun.

Consequently, the historical city center of the city remained almost intact in its original appearance, and therefore can include a variety of architectural merit, as the numerous medieval churches of great architectural richness (Lucca has even been nicknamed the 'city of 100 churches', right for the presence of numerous churches in old town, religious and otherwise, in the past and now in the city), and bell towers, Renaissance palaces and monuments of excellent linearity style.

The city also boasts beautiful urban spaces: the most famous is surely to Piazza dell, born on the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheater by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini and unique architecture.
