Palazzo Mansi is another Lucca gem worth visiting. Dating from the late 16th Century it is a wonderland to visit with beautful art on display, opulant decorated rooms, breathtaking tapestries and so much more.

On the curved ceiling of the ?ballroom which look out of perspective on entry but get straight when you move to the centre of the room. A delightful little palazzo.

This is a very striking museum. Fascinating, interesting, enjoyable. There is a wealth of Art to savour, from the Renaissance to the end of the nineteenth century. This is not just another Italian museum, but a time machine to a different age. Perfect for ending a day in and around Lucca before an evening meal - just make sure to leave yourself plenty of time, you’ll need it for everything that is on display.

Check opening times. The best time to go was around 12.30 as you could enter at any time to suit you. It is only open certain days and times. It was a quiet visit as most tours and groups were elsewhere thankfully! Do visit all the floors, as there are some fascinating exhibitions, some with beautiful gowns, silks and clerical vestments. Beautiful paintings, through the ages and not all religious. The rooms created for a bridegroom and his bride, with delicate silk drapes, wall papers as well as tapestries was quite sensational if not a little overwhelming in its opulence. The rest of the palace is more simply decorated, though stunning. Well worth a visit and do allow at least an hour to visit it all.

Straight off the cobbled street in the heat of a summer afternoon into a cool, calm haven which transported us into a more opulent and elegant era. The age of masked balls and twinkling chandeliers, rich tapestries, overwhelming gilded panels and sumptuous silks, the source of the wealth upon which this grand palace was founded. And all in peace and unhurried, no frantic sightseers - a tonic indeed.
