Fantastic apartment in a relaxing and welcoming city
"This apartment was everything that we hoped it would be. Luciano and Rosa made us feel welcomed and at home from the time that they responded to our first email through the time of our departure two weeks after our arrival. The apartment is spacious with a comfortable bed, working kitchen, beautiful rooftop terrace, large bathroom, and large open living area. We managed to take full advantage of the kitchen during our stay, and we really enjoyed shopping for local ingredients and then preparing dinners in the kitchen and then eating on the terrace. The two bicycles were a great addition. We enjoyed using them on the city walls. The apartment is located very close to the city bus stop area, and to the train station. It is easy to navigate the streets with luggage without the need for a car or taxi. The 72 steps up to the apartment that is located on the top floor sounds worse than it actually is. Luciano insisted in helping us carry our luggage up and down the stairs. We approached the stairs as part of our overall fitness regime in Lucca that included bike riding and a significant amount of walking.
Lucca is a special place. The historic city center, located within the city walls, is a great place to immerse in Italian culture and language. After two weeks in Lucca, we found ourselves recognizing the same locals and their dogs while walking on the city walls, and we found people to be genuinely pleased that we were visiting their city. Lucca is a small enough place for us to feel comfortable in the surroundings. It has a much different feeling to it than a larger city like Florence where things are more impersonal and move at a faster pace. It is nice to be able to return to relaxing Lucca after a day in busy Florence. Florence is a 80 minute train ride, and Viareggio is about 25 minutes by train.
We look forward to the time that we can return to this fantastic apartment and to this welcoming city."
