Wonderful apartment in historic Lucca. Amply spacious for 7 guests with a great rooftop terrace with panoramic view of the city and surrounding hills. A real high-end rental for a very reasonable cost. Would love to return in the future.

About the neighbourhood
Located in the heart of the historic center of Lucca, on the most beautiful street, via Fillungo, which is the pedestrian-only shopping street, full of tiny shops, winebars, coffee shops, and restaurants. The apartment is a few meters from the beautiful Piazza San Frediano and also Piazza Anfiteatro, the old Roman amphitheater. The beauty of staying in this apartment is that you can walk out the front door and within steps there are winebars, coffee shops, tiny grocery stores, everything you could imagine. And because it is in the pedestrian zone, all the movement will be people strolling or riding bikes. Wonderful!
Getting around
Pisa Airport is only 19 miles from Lucca. You can rent a car there and drive, or take a taxi, or take the train in about 30 minutes. Florence airport is about a 50 minute drive. Rome and Milan airports are about 4 hours. You can rent a car during your stay or, there is a train station in Lucca center, which is about a 12 minute walk from the apartment, and you can reach many great sights by train (Florence, Pisa, the Cinque Terre).
