Bed and breakfast & apartments in Lucca
The heart of the Tuscan countryside hides ones of Italy’s best-kept secrets, the
medieval town of Lucca. An old merchant city, Lucca is the only Tuscan town still
surrounded by its original 16th-century walls and ramparts. Walking is the best way
to see the city and its sights, which include a mixture of renaissance and medieval
architecture. Stay in a bed and breakfast or apartment by the San Martino cathedral
and take a look at the famous Volto Santo relic – a wooden figure of Christ. For the
energetic traveller a hike up the 130-foot tower at the centre of the city will take you
to the roots of an ancient oak tree that grows on the roof.
Brilliant Bed and breakfast options in Lucca
Visitors can choose from luxury accommodation in one of the hillside villas that lie
outside of the city walls or various bed and breakfast or hostel options in the old town.
Tuscany’s sandy beaches are only an hour’s drive away from Lucca, and the town
offers a slower pace of life than nearby Pisa or Florence. Check out other Wimdu lodging choices, including alternatives to
hostels in Rimini
and also in
. Local antique markets are a
good place to head to after breakfast, and after a long day of rummaging, you’ll be
ready for pasta and sleep!
