Although the apartment is located on a quiet street, there is a lot of activity right around the corner.

The apartment is only a couple of minute’s walk to Piazza San Michele and the famous shopping street of via Fillungo.


The historic centre of Lucca is easily & best explored by foot. Bicycle rentals are available almost everywhere within the walls, and are also an excellent way to explore the city centre and it's surrounding wall.

Piazza Verdi is conveniently located just a short walk away from the apartment, from here you can catch buses directly to/from Pisa airport or other destinations in Tuscany. Piazza Verdi also has the closest pay by the hour parking. The train station is situated a short 10 minute walk straight out of the south entrance of the historical centre.


This apartment is located on the 3rd floor in a historic building so therefore there are no elevators. This is common within the historical centre due to the age of the buildings. Please reconsider if you have any mobility issues as there is no alternative access to the apartment other than via the stairs.**

About Tania & Rory

Our family are from Lucca, dating back generations. So when we were lucky enough to visit our family in this beautiful city for the first time in the late 90’s, we instantly fell in love. During that first visit, a dream was born, to own a piece of historic Lucca where we could return to year after year. In 2016 we returned to Lucca for yet another vacation. We came across this beautiful apartment with a magnificent terrace. It was meant to be. All the pieces had fallen into place and our dream was realised.

This is our home away from home, and we’re excited to share it with you.

PERFECT Apartment in Beautiful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Rory & Tania were perfect hosts, excellent communicators, making everything a breeze! Fabrizio met us at the apartment exactly as planned and he made check in and check out a pleasure. What a wonderful gentleman. The apartment has everything - a huge bathroom partitioned so two females (my daughter & I ) could get ready at the same time, :-) a well-equipped kitchen, cable tv for relaxing after a long day and night exploring, and the terrace is sheer perfection! We had many gorgeous mornings and evenings there for meals and just relaxing! The location is as perfect as the apartment. We were near everything but only heard church bells birds and an occasional lovely italian conversation from the street. Picture-perfect but perfectly functional. Would love to visit again!! Thank you to our hosts for sharing their lovely home!

Well appointed, property manager met our needs in every way possible

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a great way to spend a week in the heart of Lucca. The zona pedionale was great for our 3 kids to roam around without worrying about too much traffic. There e

Was very easy access to the music festival, restaurants, shopping and, of course, gelato. The property manager was very accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the decor. Also, the covered terrace was particularly sweet during a few random thunderstorms that happened during our stay. Would definitely book again should we venture through Lucca again in the future.

Perfect place in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We booked the apartment for 6 days and it was awesome! The apartment is very big, lots of space and the deck is wonderful. We sat out all the time, just loved! Had all you could want, good sized bedrooms, large bathroom and lots of living space. I would highly recommend the apartment! The owners even set up an extra bed as we had both of our boys with us, so nice!

Great place! And perfect location!

Fantastic Location In The Center of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Rory was very helpful. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are nicely decorated. We had plenty of hot water even with four adults in the apartment!

We enjoyed sitting on the terrace but did struggle a bit with mosquitos. They had citronella candles for us to use which did help. There are plants on the terrace too which made it feel more like a home.

The location is fantastic. We were right in the heart of everything in Lucca. There is even a great place to keep bikes if you rent some.

The apartment was clean but there could have been more attention paid to the dishes, pots and pans some of which were covered in dust.

The apartment definitely feels like authentic Italy which we really liked. If you have trouble with stairs remember it is on the top floor, 67 steps.

Owner's Response: Hi Sheri, we are so pleased you and your guests enjoyed your stay at our apartment and that you liked its authentic Italian charm. Thank you for your kind words. We are however very disappointed to hear that our dishes were not up to cleanliness standards. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, it is definitely unacceptable and it will be taken up with our cleaning company. Thank you for your review, and we hope we have the opportunity to host you again.
